He lives and writes in New York City, and is consistently amazed that people are actually letting him work on comic books professionally.

All of the mysteries and intrigue that I loved in the first volume is missing here in volume two. This was of an adventure book but the adventure wasn't that interesting. I liked the look back into some of the classmates past but the we don't get a chance to see what's happening in the school or with the teachers. The art was fine but the coloring was super weird. Overall, a significant step down from what I liked in the last collection.
