Tiger Division #2 sets the team against a squad of robots determined to capture Tae for some mysterious purpose. The team will soon learn that the ambush was sponsored by a company with ties to Tae’s past.
Is It Good?
Tiger Division #2 is pretty darn good. Not mind-blowingly great or super terrible. Tiger Division #2 is a nice, solid, fun, well-put-together superhero comic with a Korean flair.
Emily Kim’s script breaks down into three separate acts. First, we get a big battle between Tiger Division and the robot attackers where we get to see a little more of the team’s capabilities in action and learn the attack was meant to capture Tae. Second, the team researches the attack, which triggers a series of flashbacks from Tae’s past when he hears a name mentioned connected to the robots. Third, Tae goes rogue to visit the MTO Corporation to confirm a connection to his past he hoped wasn’t true.
It’s all good stuff and rock-solid comic storytelling, so kudos to Kim for setting an all-too-rare example in a cluttered superhero comic market. The dialog is good, the pacing is excellent, the plot is expertly developed, and each character gets at least a moment or two to take center stage for character development.
Likewise, Lee and Nitro hit the proverbial nail on the head with rock-solid superhero action. The battle moments are thrilling, and the quiet conversations are well-acted and engaging. In practically every way, most modern superhero comics should model the structure of this issue.
