    This is the second of four graphic novel prequels to the Supernatural TV series that were produced by Wildstorm Comics in the late 2000s. In this one, John Winchester and his sons Dean and Sam are still travelling the country in their black 1967 Chevy Impala, hunting monsters and trying to find the demon that killed the boys mother. The boys are a bit older here - Dean in particular is starting to want to get involved in the hunter's life so he can better protect his younger brother and help his This is the second of four graphic novel prequels to the Supernatural TV series that were produced by Wildstorm Comics in the late 2000s. In this one, John Winchester and his sons Dean and Sam are still travelling the country in their black 1967 Chevy Impala, hunting monsters and trying to find the demon that killed the boys mother. The boys are a bit older here - Dean in particular is starting to want to get involved in the hunter's life so he can better protect his younger brother and help his father. John is struggling though, weary from all the travelling and lack of a stable home life. When he tries to track down a relative of his wife who has gone missing, he stumbles across what seems to be a perfect new life in a remote town. Of course it turns out to be too good to be true, as all the women in the town are succubi who prey on the men who stumble across the place. John also learns that Sam may hide a dark secret related to his mothers death (this was addressed in season 3 of the series before being quietly dropped). It's a reasonably good story and at least ties in to the series a bit better than volume one. The artwork is rather better in this volume too - it's dynamic and attractive to read, but still lacks any recognition factor for the characters. John in particular is drawn in such as way as to make it look as if he is crying the whole time (it's just the way the artist draws the planes of his cheekbones but it looks rather weird all the same). We get a cameo from Bobby Singer who is more or less recognisable here. I'll probably give this 3 1/2 stars

    This one was even better than the first one-As not only was the story & writing on point {In a condensed way, of course}, so was the artwork. :) The Artist, Colourist & Letterer were all changed for this one & I prefer their collective styles to the first one. I've got the 3rd issue to read next & this is another comic that I'm definitely going to continue with. :) This one was even better than the first one-As not only was the story & writing on point {In a condensed way, of course}, so was the artwork. :) The Artist, Colourist & Letterer were all changed for this one & I prefer their collective styles to the first one.

    I haven’t read the first volume, Origins, but I decided to read this one anyways. As the summary says, this takes place quite awhile before the show Supernatural begins. Dean is 11 years old and is taken on his first hunt. You also get to see the beginnings of the dark side wanting to take Sam. I thought this was a pretty good graphic novel. The illustrations were great and the writing was good as well.

    Hmmm. Well. Didn't hate it, but it didn't seem to have a lot of substance for a plot either. Highlights were mainly John's internal thoughts about whether his boy was evil and destined to lead a dark army, yet he was relentless in how far he'd go to protect him also—so I really loved that because it fits with how I view John.

There was also a really nice moment when he shows Sam the sunrise and how it banishes any darkness. The robot scene, however, was entirely too ridiculous and as much as I like the character of Lilith . . . on the show she was scary, but in this that scariness didn't translate. She seemed more demented, wanting to raise Sam as her own. It's possibly because she didn't have that eerie scary childlike innocence all the actresses, young and old, brought to her character on the show. This one was just a hard-core shank. And Sam's character just didn't jive with his true character. I know he is only eight in this and in following canon had to remain ignorant of the whole Supernatural world. Yes, I'm glad they didn't make him aware yet, because then I would complain about that (these poor writers can't win), but, it also seemed unlikely after going through all this that with his perpetually curious mind he wasn't questioning anything or putting two and two together. He just kinda went along with every lame explanation John and Dean told him about really bad "people". That just didn't feel like true Sam to me. Perhaps I'd buy it if the excuses weren't so awful. Though in fairness, I'm not sure what the writers could have done better with only little dialogue bubbles to work with. So would I recommend this? Half-heartedly, I guess. It's worth a quick thumb-through at any rate. There is a three page Bonus story by Eric Kripke at the end, which is funny. He really has a beautiful whacked out mind and totally makes fun of himself in this Ghost facers Winchester haters parody of Sam and Dean as the monster of the week (yes, singular cuz they are a conjoined monster with fabulous high cheekbones) that the Facers have to heroically gank.

Beyond my... thematic issues, the title didn't really add anything of substance to the story nor was it actually the story as billed, but that's something I can get over. What I can't get over is the repeated use of sexualized violence, particularly against a twelve year old child that just went entirely unaddressed as with everything that happened with John. I would perhaps be less upset about this if it tried to go beyond the show's use of the trope of women's weaponized sexuality a 1.5 stars.

I would perhaps be less upset about this if it tried to go beyond the show's use of the trope of women's weaponized sexuality as prove of evil (followed by the incidents being dropped in the majority of cases, because the victims are men). I'm getting away from the point. It's something I think about a lot while watching, and this title took it to some weird extremes. Also, succubi can absolutely be interesting when done right! This was not done right. The first volume was a lot more fun for me due to the petty reason of, uhhh, I think John Winchester is a terrible father that I love to hate, and Supernatural: Origins was basically a thesis on how bad of a dad he is. Rising Son was ALSO a testament to what a shit parent he is but in a sympathetic way? Like, ohhh, he's trying his best! No, he ain't. Look at those kids. They got trauma. Your tweenage son just shot a man pointblank in the head. At least there was the interesting dynamic of the brothers at the beginning, especially as they both deal with school and being on the road. And Dean got to go apeshit. I think teenage Dean should be allowed to go apeshit more often. Really fun moment for me. Elder sibling superiority.

    Meh..... Oh fine I'll write more. The artwork was pretty good, the storyline made little sense and the fact that John kept dumping his kids off on others only to come roaring back because most of them were either possessed or easily lost the boys made me want to just tape them to a tree and say "There, now the demons can chase them down and be very confused like why are you guys taped to a tree?". There were a few things that bugged me, how did John not know Ms. Lyle was a demon- oh I'm sorry FR Meh..... Oh fine I'll write more.

There were a few things that bugged me, how did John not know Ms. Lyle was a demon- oh I'm sorry FREAKING LILLITH. Why would you try to train Dean like that? Also why did Dean have blonde hair? Why? Even when they show him older right before he picks Sam up from Stanford he has blonde hair in this comic and last time I checked Dean has brown hair people. *cackles* What is going on with comics I've been reading lately? So here's the final recommendation, watch the show until season 5 then call it a wrap. Read some of the books when you want literature, and only go for the comics if you can stomach changes that make no sense and you just want to look at the pictures. It's that simple.

    This was a lot better than Supernatural: Origins, especially in terms of art and plot. However, my major problem with this is that many of the plot points directly contradict actual show canon, and don't really make sense for the character's backgrounds.

The boys do have more of a role here than they did the first volume, however. Now, a few things just didn't seem to fit to me. So the basic story is we find out Sam is eventually supposed to lead an army of darkness and make war against the world. I seem to remember that storyline from a past season of the show. In this story we have demons after Sam, as well as hunters who want to kill him. It seemed a little out of character to see John Winchester start slaughtering fellow hunters. While I understand he'd do anything to protect Sam and Dean, he was really vicous here. Not just killing hunters who came after Sam, but hunting down others who MAY come after Sam and killing them as well. We also see Dean kill a human at a very young age. Lilith makes an appearance, but considering how she ends up I wonder if this is even supposed to be the same Lilith who shows up on the TV show. Overall it just didn't seem to fit the characters as I knew them. The art was good, and while it didn't make the book, it didn't detract from it either. Overall a decent read, but just not something I'd think of as canon for the TV series.

    This is the followup to Supernatural: Origins, and I think it's even better than the first. The graphic novel again focuses of John Winchester, but this time Sam and Dean are much more involved. It picks up a few years after Origins and focuses on John dealing with the relationship he has with his kids and trying to figure out how to raise them and keep them safe. We begin to see Dean come into his own and start down the path to becoming a hunter.

The writing is all top-notch and adds a lot of depth and backstory to the series. There was a lot of good character development going on, especially with Dean, making it even more enjoyable. I found the art much better than with origins, much crisper and more detailed. You can always tell who's who, and in addition to Same, Dean, and John, you get to see a couple familiar faces from the TV show, all of which you can recognize instantly. Just like with the first one, if you enjoy the Supernatural TV series, you owe it to yourself to pick this up, or at least borrow it from a friend. For those of you non-fans, I'll say once again that you should check out the show - it's fun, while being fairly dark at times, but doesn't always take itself seriously. It's a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

It was very confusing, and I don't know if it was just me, or maybe a few more panels could have been used between some of those abrupt changes. I loved the "bonus" Ghostfacers story. Normally the Facers annoy me a bit, but it was a short comic and completely hilarious. I love how Kripke and Co. are able to make fun of themselves and some of the more melodramatic elements of their show. Grade: B

    John Winchester is out to find the demon who killed his wife. The problem is he keeps coming across a whole host of other supernatural beings as well as having his two young sons in tow. He's come to accept that it's only a matter of time before he has to teach Sam and Dean the ways of a hunter. He needs their help and they need to know how to survive.

The artwork is always a big part of any graphic novel and Rising Son definitely hits the mark. The dialogue is good although I'm not sure it showed the true emotion all that brilliantly - I guess due to it's format. If you like graphic novels and Supernatural this should be on your wishlist.

    Rising Son is the second Supernatural Graphic Novel based off the original TV series, and serves as a prequel. The plot itself mostly deals with John Winchester's struggle to overcome his own demons, start training his son Dean to become a hunter, all the while trying to take care of his sons. Most of the graphic novel deals with the mysteries surrounding Sam, and John's struggle to protect his sons from hell's interest, and discover what Sam really is.

They lost a good majority of the vague, cloudy look they had in the previous comic, and everything was much more detailed and lovely to look at. In the end, it was a great improvement to the graphic novel series, even though it doesn't really add much to the story, especially if you've seen the show. 3/5

Lilith also rears her head in this comic but, for some reason, I didn't think the Winchester boys knew who she was when she appeared on the show but maybe I was wrong. The comic wasn't particularly earth-shattering but it was fun and I can never get enough of the Winchesters.

    Comic books or graphic novels based on television shows can be iffy. Usually, they lack the spirit of the source material and the voices of the characters that you connect with on the show. What seems cool on screen becomes campy and lame when presented without those essential elements. Even when written by a producer of the show, these comics can be... lame. This is not the case with "Rising Son". The story captured my attention and kept me coming back.

It was a worthwhile read which didn't feel like something completely unrelated to the show, but with the show's title and character names pinned to it. I recommend this book to any fan of the series. How would it read to those unfamiliar with the show? It's hard for me to judge that.

    Quite liked the artwork in this, everyone looked a little more familiar, with more penned in detail and colour. So this was all about teaching Dean whats out there and how he has to help stop all bad things from ecer happening to Sammy. Quite sweet really. Realising that Dean gets the same gut feelings about things like John, true hunter. You get to see the isolation they went through and all the trust issues.

    It's great to see the earlier days, and from a different perspective, yet still about Sam and Dean. Also, I think this fitted in perfectly with series four, probably the start of series five, and though knowing what happens in the future could answer some of John's questions, it reminds us that there's still a lot of things unanswered. I love young Sam and Dean, and the ending where we were brought up to date with grown up Dean was beautifully done. In other words, I love it to bits.

    The art in this book is much more clear, and expressive than the first book, though unfortunately a little less creepy. With a now older cast the story can focus on more than just John, and now allowing for more perspectives. I liked the straightforwardness of it.

I was surprised and delighted by the bonus mini-comic for the GhostFacers. Also Bobby.

    I'll keep it simple. It was creepy. It was all about Sam and others thinking that young Sam already was basically the anti-Christ. The demons were salivating for him, hunters were lurking and John and Dean were protecting. All while Sam acted like a normal kid, except for the few times when he did not. The drawings of Dean and Sam were good. John was drawn so-so. Interesting! Much much better than Beginning's End. I'll keep it simple. It was creepy.

    More like 3.5 stars. Not quite as good as Origins. Shows more of John's hunts and how the boys begin hunting too, even has a little bit of Ms.Lyle/Lillith. Unfortunately, the bonus story is a stupid Ghost Facers story. I just don't understand why the folks on this show think this stuff is funny. I just find it incredibly annoying and it damages the show, in my opinion. Really wish I hadn't even read that "bonus" story as it's a bad way to end the TPB. More like 3.5 stars.
