Aspen’s first ever intra-series summer event, “The Hit List Agenda” continues right here!

Answers to the jaw-dropping cliffhanger that ended Volume One are finally revealed! Discover the truth about Iris’ fate after her release from Mr. Ching’s imposing hold over her life, and how, in the process, she managed to escape the clutches of death as well. However, with the revelations surrounding Iris and her reappearance now exposed, another Executive Assistant from her past makes a dramatic return in deadly fashion!

Executive Assistant: Iris is a really good book. I might not love all of the other titles in the series, but the flagship title is solid. Suspense, action, and hot girls in bikinis; what more could you ask for?

This particular issue is a bit light on the action and heavy on the exposition. Still, there are a few great little mini-fights throughout the book to satisfy the action fans. This book focuses more on Iris and her new employer, and on Acteia.

The strength of this book is in the mystery. There are some big plans in the works. While I think I may know what’s happening, it’s quite possible that there will be a twist later on that throws off my predictions.

My favorite part of the book is the artwork. I love the way that Eduardo Francisco draws the Executive Assistants. I especially love the way he draws faces. While not everyone is a fan of the big, sparkly, doe-eyed look, I enjoy it. His characters are almost too cute to kick ass.

Overall, I enjoyed the book and I’m looking forward to issue 3. I give Executive Assistant: Iris #2 3.5 out of 5 diabolical microchips.
