Espionage in Amsterdam.

Much like Nathan Edmondson and Mitch Gerads’ first issue of The Activity, this second installment is an intelligent and tactical story of covert operations and espionage.  As Omaha team travels from the States to Amsterdam, the mission becomes more dangerous, their world more complex, and the team solidifies as a unit.

Omaha is dispatched to Amsterdam, where they are tasked with locating and hunting down an MIA operative.  Over the course of the mission, Edmondson details the lukewarm political relationship between the ISA and the CIA and how the two operate around each other.  More importantly, however, a full-fledged sense of cameraderie begins to develop between the numerous members of Omaha, making the team's operations much more enjoyable to watch unfold.

One of the most exciting points of this issue, much like the previous, is the fantastic and complex art by Mitch Gerads.  The tactical nature of the team’s operations is made all the more believable and exciting due to the art; the highpoint of the issue being the deployment of flash grenades and the team’s infiltration, with lighting effects and tactical optics dominating the pages.

The Activity #2 is the perfect follow-up to an outstanding first issue.  Omaha’s mission to Amsterdam was not only action-packed, but continues to develop the characters and relationships within the team.  If The Activity is not on your list of must-reads, it needs to be.
