    This is one “out there” series. And I mean that both in a story-sense and also from a “I can’t believe that this series is actually allowed to be published” perspective. On the one hand, you have to credit co-writers Scott Snyder and Charles Soule for refusing to play things safe: this is a series that has big things on its mind and isn’t afraid to dig deep, ranging from ideas of what exactly constitutes American nationalism to examining the nature of free will and its impact – positive AND negat This is one “out there” series. And I mean that both in a story-sense and also from a “I can’t believe that this series is actually allowed to be published” perspective. On the one hand, you have to credit co-writers Scott Snyder and Charles Soule for refusing to play things safe: this is a series that has big things on its mind and isn’t afraid to dig deep, ranging from ideas of what exactly constitutes American nationalism to examining the nature of free will and its impact – positive AND negative – on the human condition. It’s also a series that has consistently gorgeous art, with illustrator Giuseppe Camuncoli providing spread after spread of striking color and dynamic line-work. On a purely technical and thematic level, there’s so much to admire and appreciate here. On the other hand…this is also a series that is, well, a lot to take in. Issue-for-issue, Snyder and Soule don’t hold the reader’s hand, neither in terms of providing easy answers to story questions, or when it comes to providing a clear sense of narrative thrust – there are significant chunks of “Undiscovered Country” where it is not 100% clear what exactly is happening, or even if we SHOULD know what is happening. That kind of cards-close-to-the-chest approach to building an ongoing story is is easy to admire – I wish more writers trusted their readers to be smart enough to keep up with them – but it can also lead to a sense of narrative fatigue, especially when applied over an extended publication schedule. It also doesn’t help that it can often be difficult to remember exactly what happened, story-wise, when reading the series month-to-month: so big are the ideas being bounced around here, and so thoroughly unapologetic is Snyder and Soule’s approach to digging deep into said ideas, that it’s not unusual to often feel lost at sea, especially when new chapters of the story are being released only once every 30 days. In fact, one might be forgiven for wondering if the ideal reading experience of “Undiscovered Country” wasn’t month-to-month, but rather, if read binge-style – theoretically, this might help to eliminate some of the confusion/fatigue on a story-level, and might also provide a better and more consistent sense of payoff, as opposed to having to wait 30 days for each new drip of story. Still – you have to admire the ambition of what Snyder and Soule are going for here. “Undiscovered Country” isn’t always the most fun or even engaging series on the stands, but it may be one of the most interesting. And that doesn’t count for nothing.

    A significant improvement over the first volume. The characters don't evolve past their basic personality traits, but the world-building is far more exciting and paced far better than the breakneck chaos of the first arc. The series isn't as smart or unique as it thinks it is, and I still wish Soule and Snyder interrogated the Americana ideas and themes they introduce instead of co-opting them for fun, wild fantasy. But...if fun is their goal, this volume achieves that. Camuncoli, Grassi, and Wi A significant improvement over the first volume.

But...if fun is their goal, this volume achieves that. Camuncoli, Grassi, and Wilson's art remain a big draw. Camuncoli's dynamic layouts and creative, grotesque designs give the book a style and originality that easily outshine the serviceable but rote script. I'm definitely going to be sticking around for the series, which wasn't something I was sure of after finishing the introductory volume. I wish this series was something more than it is. When taken as it is––a rollercoaster of a science-fantasy series––Undiscovered Country is an enjoyable, easy, and sometimes exciting read. 3.5/5.

    With a lot of the world-building out of the way, it becomes more clear in this second volume that the authors will be using the narrative framework they've created to comment on different aspects of American politics and culture. This is fine, but the science fiction they're couching it in is still a little on the basic and predictable side. Still, this volume was just compelling enough to make me want to read further, which is really the only thing an ongoing series needs to do.

    A bit better than the first volume since some of the tedious worldbuilding is already done, but an anticipation of exhaustion is looming as well - if they intend to devote six issues to each arc and have established a need for 13 arcs (at least, based on the current track record) that's a promise for (or a demand to keep buying for) more than 5 more years of story. Good Luck.

    The second step of the Path brings our heroes into the community known as Unity. Could their decision already be made, or is this place too good to be true? And with the Destiny Man hot on their heels, will they even survive to make the decision at all? Undiscovered Country probably loses a lot of its impact on me since I'm not an American.

Could their decision already be made, or is this place too good to be true? And with the Destiny Man hot on their heels, will they even survive to make the decision at all? Undiscovered Country probably loses a lot of its impact on me since I'm not an American. The culture references don't resonate as much as they should, but the idea of trying to build a better world and approaching it from different directions is one that I can definitely get behind, as well as a Stepford-esque community that hides a creepy underbelly, and that's what this second arc of UC gives us. We still get a little character development for everyone as well, although the siblings are definitely the driving force of this section as well. The leader of Unity is equal parts convincing and awful, and there's at least one 'oh dear god' type of reveal that disturbed me a hell of a lot, so well done Soule/Snyder. Giuseppe Camuncoli's artwork really shines in this volume; his new stable of inkers/colourist mean that this volume's a bit more consistent than the first where everything was kind of in flux at the end. The ropey wire constructs that appear when everything goes to hell are reminiscent of Cammo's Spider-Man work. Undiscovered Country's second volume is a twist on a concept we've seen before, but it drives the ongoing plot forward while dripfeeding us some reveals about the greater story; a now bedded-in art stable completes the team, and god knows where they're going to take us next.

    Even though it’s not as inventive as the first volume (though it is quite inventive), the storytelling is improved. That could be because we know the characters and world better now. But also, I think, this reads better as a whole volume rather than the individual issues (which is how I read volume one). There are some interesting ideas, but due to the episodic nature and the number of characters, there’s not a lot of depth. We get an idea of the six chosen to enter America: (I can’t recall name Even though it’s not as inventive as the first volume (though it is quite inventive), the storytelling is improved.

There are some interesting ideas, but due to the episodic nature and the number of characters, there’s not a lot of depth. We get an idea of the six chosen to enter America: (I can’t recall names off the top of my head) two are interested in the business side of things, two are siblings whose parents were involved in making America what it’s become, one has an innate knowledge of things in America, and the last has a drone. We do t get to know these people in much more depth than that, since other characters get somewhat higher billing: the Destiny Man, Sam, and newcomer Jain, who runs Unity. But Snyder and Soule do a nice job incorporating all of the key characters. This is certainly an ambitious project. If each volume will focus on one zone of America, that’s at least 13 volumes, not to mention what else the story needs to tackle. I hope they can pull it off. It’ll be tough in the fickle indie market though.

    This series is really really weird and the first issues of each new volume are tough to get into. However, both times Snyder and Soule have managed to wrap up each section making me want to read more.

    I didn't like it at first. It's too over the top which scott snyder loves to do even though it ruins most of his comics. But if you stick with it it comes around into a more fathomable and coherent story. Ill keep reading it. But I wouldn't recommend it. 3 stars. I didn't like it at first.

    Not quite as engrossing as the first volume, though I certainly appreciate the metaphors I’m tracking and the neo-Americana of this arc.
