It ends pretty much the only way it could and I think it ended perfectly.
Andrew E. Ragan
Season 2 starts off strong and continues the same for the majority of the book, but by issue 9 (of 12) the book begins to fall apart into itself in a negative way.

I just recently reread the whole Sleeper series and it was a very entertaining read.

(No Spoilers)

When I did my review of the Sleeper: Season One trade earlier this year, I had someone make a comment that it was nothing but a fan gush. I know I have a bias towards Wildstorm stuff but I still try to give all their WSU releases a fair review (and if you look back, you'll see there have been several that I didn't care for). But Sleeper as a series is more than gush-worthy. I'd go as far as to call it the "Watchmen" of Wildstorm. Only Wildcats 3.0 comes close to Sleeper as far as quality and overall story. When Brubaker did the Point Blank mini-series, it was clear he had the whole Sleeper arc planned out. Point Blank was a tease of things to come and Sleeper: Season One showed us a dark and dirty side to the WSU (thanks to the mature-rating). He made us care about Holden Carver's plight and made us root for him, even though his story is far from a happy one.

Another thing that I think people take for granted about this series is how Brubaker turned the character of Tao into a true villain. He'd already shown how intelligent he evil Tao could be. The tone Brubaker set for the character is still felt even in the recent World's End storyline where Tao plays a heavy part.

Lastly, this is also a great gateway book into the WSU. Since it can be read as a stand-alone, it allows the reader to decide whether to continue looking into the WSU afterwards or stop when this story ends. And speaking of endings, this one has a great ending which people still talk about as one of the best resolutions to a comic, regardless of how bitter-sweet it is. So if I've gushed again with this review, so be it. This series more than deserves it.

Format: Paperback
Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips' groundbreaking Wildstorm imprint series "Sleeper" returns for its second `season' of twelve issues (proper comics terminology would label this a `volume', but that would conflict with the labelling of the original four trades that collect the series in six-issue chunks; `series' might have been a better alternative, but the infiltration of TV terms into comics continues). The first volume chronicled Holden Carver's descent from undercover agent to outright criminal (one thinks of Alan Moore's Moriarty, wondering whether he is a spy masquerading as a crimelord or vice versa). Volume two picks up from that and runs with it. Some spoilers follow.

There was a nominal bridge between the two volumes, "Coup D'Etat: Sleeper", part of a wider Wildstorm event that saw the superhero team The Authority take over the United States government; this story is best ignored, as this series works best in isolation, not yoked to the wider Wildstorm imprint, increasingly a creative dead-end (though Brubaker's own run on The Authority concurrent to this is recommended). It has minimal bearing on the story, which finds Holden now trying to adjust to being an unrepentant bad guy; (perhaps) unfortunately for him, his former handler, John Lynch, has woken up from a year-long coma, and he's now out to recover his most important agent and bring down the criminal mastermind Tao once and for all. The rest of the surviving cast of the first volume returns, most notably Holden's ex-wife Veronica, still an agent of the government and unwilling to believe Holden is wholly bad; and Gretchen (Miss Misery), Holden's current supervillain girlfriend.

There are some distinct changes in tone compared to the first volume.

If you read the first, you must read this. It ends pretty much the only way it could and I think it ended perfectly.

Excellent writing. Not great art, but it works. You will be amazed by how the Bru works with average (no great powers) characters and make them exciting.
