Sheep Comic Review: Prototype 2 Digital Comic book mini-series

Genre: Science-Fiction, Horror, Action/Adventure


I don’t play video games, but I freaking love video game commercials because they are like moving comic books. And not just any comic books; total chaos, bloodshed, and general bad-assery comics, which I am quite partial to. The game Prototype 2 comes out April 24 and to bridge the first game to this one Dan Jolley (lead writer for Prototype 2) is releasing 3 digitally exclusive two-part stories.

The protagonist from the first game is Alex Mercer, a shapeshifting badass who goes around killing people who have been infected by a virus called Blacklight that turns them into murdering monsters in Manhattan, NY. The infected area, called the red zone, is absolute chaos and filled with rampaging monsters. The yellow zone is a quarantine line made by the military but it's no picnic there either, and then there is the green zone where life is normal. The new game introduced a new protagonist named Sergeant James Heller who is bent on vengeance, including killing Alex Mercer.

PROTOTYPE 2 #1, #2: THE ANCHOR, PART 1, 2
14 pages Ages 16+
Writer: Dan Jolley
Artist: Paco Diaz
Colorist: Michael Atiyeh
The first set of comic is The Anchor part 1 and 2. We meet Alex one year after the Blacklight virus hit NY. He is traveling the world looking for good in humanity and himself. I knew nothing about the games before reading this, but it is everything I love about action comics with a dark anti-hero. Mercer has awesome abilities knows how to slice and dice, oh and he is really hot too. Anyway, both parts are only 14 pages, but you get a complete story in narration form from Alex and some vivid artwork. I was entertained and looking forward to the next installment.

PROTOTYPE 2 #3, #4: THE SURVIVORS PART 1, 2
14 pages Ages 16+
Writer: Dan Jolley
Artist: Chris Staggs
Colorist: Michael Atiyeh
The second set is The Survivors part 1 and 2. This one is from the POV of a NYC police detective trying to escape the red zone with two others so he can find his wife who was in the green zone. It gives you an idea of what atrocities the military and scientists involved in Blacklight are responsible for. These two are also told mostly in narration form like The Anchor. Again you get a good story but there is a different artist involved with this set. The artwork is just as good, but a little darker than The Anchor.

PROTOTYPE 2 #5, #6: THE LABYRINTH PART 1, 2
14 pages Ages 16+
Writer: Dan Jolley
Penciller: Victor Drujiniu
Inker: Jonas Trintade
Colorist: Michael Atiyeh
The last set is called The Labyrinth part 1 and 2 and this is where we meet the hero of Prototype 2, Sergeant James Heller, before things go very wrong in his life. There is no narration in this one, only dialogue. We learn a group called Blackwatch is doing some unorthodox recruiting and we learn something about Heller’s moral character. I really like this guy and you will be pulling for him. This set also has a new artist whose work very closely matched the work of the artist for The Survivors. However it has the same good writing as the other comics.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed these 6 comics even though I knew nothing about the game. I would like to see a full-length comic series about these characters in the future and suggest everyone check them out.
