Great character development as well as an intriguing story line. The plot thickens
Enemies remain faceless other than Potts description. Absurd action takes away from intensity of battle.

Gunsuits #2 continues the multidimensional battle between humanity and unstoppable monsters bent on destroying life everywhere. It opens up with Potts explaining to an alternate version of herself how the monster the latter just killed is just an early form of an even more terrifying army. And the news gets worse when Potts tells her that they both can’t truly exist in the same dimension because eventually one of them will be killed or just fade out of existence. However, it’s not all bad news as the alternate Potts, known as Potters Field, introduces Potts to her team of bio-mech soldiers known as the Tombstones. In her world, she’s the only soldier left so it gives her even slight hope that this dimension might be the start to turning the tide of the war. In this dimension all isn’t lost yet, and the battle hardened Potts might view things differently from her new team in terms of protecting humanity against this threat. But what do these monsters want and how have they been able to traverse through different dimensions destroying everything in their path?
Gunsuits #2 is a solid issue that builds on the intriguing character dynamics while delivering interesting answers regarding the multidimensional invasion. It’s refreshing how Paul Tobin utilized the different dimensions to give life to the characters on the team with the alternate Potts. Despite one comical addition to them, the monsters are overall more frightening this issue since more is revealed so hopefully next issue capitalizes on that. But I’m glad I gave this series a try and I’m looking forward to the next one.
