The dads are back and thankfully so. We were waiting for the dad action, and we finally got Dream Daddy #2 after Dream Daddy #1. After reviewing Dream Daddy #1 we were stoked to continue this – what seems to be – mini-series under Oni Press. This series seems to have a different set of writers, artists, and letterers on each issue and it reminds us of a great run Twisted Romance we did last Valentine’s Day.
With the concept of a different team on each issue, you get two outcomes: a love or a dislike for certain issues. This is because you get different art, different writing, and a different setting then the previous issue you have read. In Dream Daddy #2 it is not jarringly different, which was a huge plus coming from the wonderful first issue.
Here’s What We Know About Dream Daddy #2
I believe we said this in the previous review, but this mini-series does not have a general synopsis. It does continue from the game, if you have played it. The game is simple by GameGrumps. You create a dad, play as him, and date other dads. All of them have children like you do, and you simply have fun and date all kinds of dads. There’s a goth dad, a dark dad, a bro dad, all different kinds of dads on the scene. There is a very basic plot to the game, but for the most part it’s a RPG. The comics are the same way.
In the comic series, however, there’s no option for you to create a dad. So, in most cases, the dad will be what the artists and writers perceive. In this second issue, though, we have two dads that already existed in the game. The goth/vampire dad and the dark, mysterious dad. Both – in the actual game – you could date as your created dad.
Let’s Talk ‘Bout Dream Daddy #2
Written by Lee C. A. Illustrated and colored by Jack Gross and lettered by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou. The cover is by Jack Gross. We do have the same letterer on-board for this issue as the previous issue as well. Dream Daddy #2: Let The Right Dad In is right off the bat a different style. Not just with the art, but the speech bubbles are different as well as the writing.
After realizing this was a mini-series with different teams on-board, I had an appreciation for this issue. In a way, this series is like the actual game. While playing the game you get a ton of different endings. There’s a handful of endings that you can get – maybe even more than that. Having different art, writing, and style to each issue reminds me of that.
Two of my… least favorite dads are in this issue but I remain unbiased. Goth dad and mysterious dad aren’t bad dads – they just aren’t my type of dad. However, I do like them a bit more after reading this issue, I can say that. Goth dad is kind of snarky and mysterious dad is kind of… adorable.
Art, Writing = The Daddiest Of All?
Now, to rate this comic – such as last time – we rate the writing and art under “daddy” versus “
Nonetheless, this book is just as fantastic as the first issue. It’s full of
