Days of Hate #2 Review

by Nathan Koffler on February 28, 2018

Writer: Ales Kot
Artist: Danijel Zezelj
Colorist: Jordie Bellaire
Publisher: Image Comics


I definitely see what Days of Hate is going for and the message they want to get across behind the story, but I personally just don’t think it’s interesting or well written enough to make the content worth it. I think that a dramatic post-apocalypse story taking place in the coming years of what America is going through now could work, but I’m not sure if this is it.

I would most likely lean the way the writing and art team do politically on every issue, which makes me feel like this series is pandering. The story is dramatic and layered with cliche characters and partnerships. The scenario is not bad but the execution does feel pretty bland. I didn’t love reading this issue because I was kind of bored with it. A lot of people will love it a lot and I can understand that, but I am not one of those people.

The art is unique and matches the content of the story. It provides the dark tone the writing needs really well. There are some times that I am a little put off by the way faces are drawn, but the rest is really interesting artwork. The different color schemes from character to character is beautifully done.

I am not afraid of the content or the ideas they are getting across in this issue and series, I just simply don’t really like it. I know that this is right up the alley for a lot of people, but I don’t see myself jumping at a chance to read the rest of the series or recommending it to anyone.
