Dark Horse Comics continues of a hero surviving and fights in the borderlands in Death Orb on its second issue.

The story is more likely to have a cyberpunk Sci-Fi genre, but it gives much more of a thrill for adventure for one warrior who’s willing to risk his life to find someone in a wasteland of chaos. Even though I find that it’s interesting for a comic to read, and it’s about a pack of cults filled with mercenaries and monsters to kill the main character. Oh, and Jesus Christ’s Cross that turned upside down on the first issue cover of the comic.

Rider was constantly unconscious after getting shot in the head, which means he’s not dead yet, and the readers thought that he’s dead at the end of the first issue comes up with a confusion. Seriously, he gets headshot by some spy and claiming that he’s dead just by lying on the ground with blood coming out, but right now, he’s still alive. This is such a plot twist, Rider gets taken in by some mercenaries and then forced him to work with them, but Rider refused because he just wants to find his wife and an unborn child. Furthermore, the father of this world is pulling its strings to the cults and demand that man is considered to be dangerous for them. What journey lies to Rider and the others?

After reading the first two issues, I find that it’s more of the world that the author created, but to Rider, he seemed determined to find his wife. And this “Father” person, I like to know more about him. Who is this person who is pulling all the strings of this world? And why is he that concerned about Rider? I don’t know what is weirder, the fact that in the name of God and Jesus Christ is constantly helping us, or the fact that the deity of this comic is sending one of his servants just to kill Rider in the first place. Like geez, do I need to perform my tradition to call for God to help me to figure out about this comic, or just say that I love him. The second issue will be more thrilling if you want to continue reading it until the end.
