TG #2 follows the TG's trip to a comic book convention at the invitation of a group of like minded RLSHes. She hangs out at the convention and is shadowed by an unknown character. She also involves herself in the "case" of a vendor's missing $900 comic book. The TG gets the group of RLSHes to join her on the case of this missing comic when she meets them later in the evening. The case is finally solved in a fashion that falls somewhere between Blues Clues and The Bloodhound Gang.
The questions are what is this series supposed to be and where will it go? If this is social commentary on RLSHes, it's great and funny. There are scenes in the book that point that way. My favorite was when the RLSHes helped the lady whose car was stuck in the mud. I laughed aloud which doesn't happen often while I'm reading comics. For those expecting something akin to Kick-Ass, you may be disappointed unless Troy Hickman has an ace up his sleeve. There are some clues in the book that point towards real danger but it never seems to materialize.
My biggest fear is that neither of those are the case and that because she keeps saying that she's "off her meds," we'll find out that this was all in her head. We know she has OCD, but is that why she's taking these medications? Or, is she delusional? I'm going to have a little faith and keep going into battle with the TG.
