A Review: PIROUETTE #2

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of PIROUETTE #2 from Black Mask Studios. The story is by Mark L. Miller, with art by Carlos Granda, colors by El Comic En Linea Foundation, and lettering is by Jim Campbell.

 The circus has arrived in Lima and entertaining the crowd as usual. All the while, Pirouette has two missions: pickpocketing the crowd for Duke and (hopefully) locating her birth parents. Brassy, who saw Piroette’s parents leave her all those years ago, may have identified them from the several photos she stole.  Seeing a chance to run away and finally meet her family, Pirouette is allowed to join the other clowns for the “Clown Parade.” Will she finally escape the nightmare of a life she has lived? Has she finally found her parents? If so, will they accept her back in their lives?

This is a different type of series, but it has been a very interesting read. Pirouette is a strong, young female character who has endured much, but has an incredible spirit that won’t be broken. Mark L. Miller and Carlos Granda a beautiful, yet dark tale; it’s very much a modern day fairy tale.

PIROUETTE #2 is in stores now, or available for ordering at www.blackmaskstudios.com.
