THE LEGEND OF THE MANTAMAJI: BOOK 2 suffers from its excesses: too much dialogue, too many similar fight scenes, and a too-complicated backstory that keeps growing in complexity. The story is best when it keeps things simple, such as when it introduces a new rogue's gallery of villains to face off against Elijah and Noah. Those scenes capture the aggressive appeal of classic superhero comics. This installment ends in a cliffhanger that promises new twists in the concluding volume.
