The adventures of the world's most iconic warrior princess continue next week in the pages of Xena #2. Meredith Finch and Vicente Cifuentes return with a brand new issue that sees Xena tormented by horrific dreams from her past. Meanwhile, Gabrielle tries desperately to make friends with the former warlord, but to no real avail. Clearly, her savoir is here to deliver her to Athens, and nothing else.
We are then transported to a rain soaked Athens, where a ship is being loaded with scores of slaves under the guise of Priestesses. After bypassing inspection with the help of some shiny currency, we learn that said ship is captained by none other than the villainous Callisto, who decides to delay setting sail after learning that Xena has been spotted on the road to Athens.
We than rejoin Xena and Gabrielle on the road, where the bard is continuing to try and make friends. However, her attempts are cut short after they spy a pair of barbaric Cyclops lounging in the sun. Although Xena decides to not engage the creatures, it is Gabrielle's curiosity that gets the better of her. Altering the monsters to their presence, the duo soon find themselves captured by the creatures, however they're able to escape thanks to some quick thinking from Xena.
Leaving the dimwitted creatures behind, Xena scolds Gabrielle for her actions, however when the bard tries to apologize, Xena refuses to listen and leaves Gabrielle at the side of the road.
The second issue of Dynamite's new Xena comic series continues to expand the classic fantasy world of Robert Tapert. Adding monsters and a popular villain from the original television series, this second issue is guaranteed to rope in longtime fans and new readers alike!
We can't recommend this new series enough! Not only does it successfully transition the world of Xena: Warrior Princess from screen to page once again, but we can't wait for the inevitable showdown that is about to unfold!
Rating: 5/5 - "The world of Xena expands next month with an all-new issue that could see the iconic Warrior Princess heading straight into a trap spearheaded by an old foe."
Xena #2 arrives on newsstands Wednesday, March 14th.
