I was genuinely surprised by the ending to the first volume of Snowpiercer. What seemed like a fairly typical post-apocalyptic tale wound up on a note that I didn’t see coming at all. So when the second volume of the comic was recently released by Titan Books, I scooped it up so I could find out what happened next.
Unfortunately, the second volume doesn’t continue the same storyline. Instead, Volume 2 picks up with a different hero on Snowpiercer 2, a completely different train. Wait, what? You’re saying there are two never-stopping, socially stratified trains that harbor the last remnants of humanity to keep them from dying in the harsh arctic environment? What’re the chances?
