    Still cute, but also kinda weird and random.

    This continues to be very cute. Is it a super compelling or complex plot? Nah. But the art is adorable, the relationship is sweet, and this volume introduces a black non-binary (vampire) character who uses they/them pronouns! I look forward to more of this. The cutest spooky comic you can find. (Though "Valley Ghouls" by Kate Leth comes the closest.)

    Still a cute book, but for some reason I didn't like it as much as the first one. It still has the same writing and art style so it might have just been the mood I was in, but I guess I didn't find the parody aspects to be as funny this time around or the character designs to be as good. Still, its a short fun read and the main characters are pretty adorable.

    Not really sold on it. I don't really feel anything for any of the characters. The plot and dialog both feel rushed. Illustrations are ok. But the colors are on point.

Kim Reaper Volume 2, as it says on the tin, deals with vampires but of course, not just! It deals with a lot of banter, teen drama and death, the grim reaper type! This graphic novel by Oni Press is adventurous and sometimes innovative in a funny way. Kim finally has some time from all her overtime to see Becka who has been watching Teen Vampire Drama with Tyler, her best friend. Kim makes a comment about vampires being snobs and Becka and Tyler are excited to go on an adventure to see vampires. Only Kim had to leave for ‘work’ and things escalate quickly. Old relationships are reforged and a lot of unnecessary, exaggerated badassery happens. Just your everyday college experience I guess! In this volume we get to see how Kim became a grim reaper! While it’s a second volume, it’s been a while since I read the first and I managed to understand without recalling the story. The gist of volume one is mentioned throughout the story, so feel free to read this spooky volume first! Becka’s and Kim’s relationship is not stable. There’s a lot of emotions like jealousy and insecurity that sometimes take over. They however, have a cute way of interacting with each other and having adult conversations to clear up the air. Becka’s reactions to things is very realistic, like stress crying etc. The best friends relationships are great. Tyler is #thirdwheelforlifeapproved. The funny adventures and banter make the story. It’s a halloweeny read without it being horrific or too cliché. In fact, sometime the plot just grabs a trope, uses it, then adds a funny twist. I love how the vampires transform into giant and funny looking bats – way more realistic that smaller bats. The grim reapers are also funny and the vampires are in fact, actually snobby. The series as a whole and this particular volume is very inclusive of sexual and romantic orientations, body types, race and genders. I absolutely adore the casual ‘they/them’ usage! I have one question left – what happens when Grim realises what happened to Boney Maloney? October is here. So go kill some time by reading this graphic novel. You’ll reap the reward later, when you’re all set for the season of cupcakes and doom.

    It’s not easy dating a busy part-time Grim Reaper. Things are getting tense between Bekka and Kim when Kim offers to use her cool magic scythe to transport Bekka and her BFF Tyler to Vampire Island so they can work out their fantasies fueled by their favorite TV show, Vampire Teen Drama. Non-vampires are not welcome or safe on Vampire Island, so obviously everything goes wrong. Enter good gut vampire Charlie who turns out to be Kim’s BFF, missing since he was “turned” a while back. Hijinx ensue! It’s not easy dating a busy part-time Grim Reaper.

    Somewhere between a 2.5 / 3 star rating Wasn’t the greatest thing I’ve ever read, but also wasn’t the worst Even though I really didn’t enjoy the first volume, I decided I’d still give the second one a chance seeing as I had borrowed both from my local library. A lot of the questions I had from the first volume weren’t answered still but I honestly expected that. Becka was endearing in the first one but I found her to be annoying in this one.

    I thought this was such a great second volume to the Kim Reaper series. After going against her boss and not killing her girlfriend they decided to punish Kim by making her do extra work so she will not have time to spend with her girlfriend. One night Her girlfriend and her best friend were watching a teenage drama about vampires and Kim let it slip that she knew of a real vampire island. Then the adventure begins. I still love the art style.

    Still not a huge fan of the drawing style and this reads so much younger than the college age, it almost feels middle grade in tone. But it's inclusive, cute, and silly, so I suppose there's no harm to it. Not sure if I'll continue the series though, as nothing is truly making me worry for the characters or wonder where they'll go from here.

    I struggled to finish this... the characters that were overly sweet and incredibly stupid but still kinda endearing in the first volume were just way too much in this, it's like wading through syrup... it's a shame as a love Graley generally, and enjoyed Glitch, but I've sadly had enough of the idiot Becca to last a lifetime...

    Kim and Becka are in for another supernatural adventure complete with blood-sucking vampires and hell hounds! Graley's art and dialog combine for a fun story with colorful, playful panels and a smooth storyline.
