    At the end of Dust Max found herself in an alternate reality where Rachel Amber never died. Now two years have passed and she's living with Rachel and Chloe who are in a relationship and living in L.A.

Now two years have passed and she's living with Rachel and Chloe who are in a relationship and living in L.A. Rachel is a youtuber and aspiring actress, Chloe works at a auto-shop and pursues a career as an artist in her spare time, and Max is doing her best to fit into this world. They all kind of put up with Max without asking questions about why she clearly is suffering guilt and trauma from some past events they are unaware of. Max is grieving the death of people who never died, and struggling with how much she misses people who she sees every day. I really like what the author is doing here, exploring trauma from the perspective of someone who has had everything she's lost returned to her. I always wondered after watching Doctor Who why the writers thought Rose Tyler would be happy surrounded by an alternate universe version of her father, and a clone of the doctor; Wouldn't she realize one day that she's living with ghosts? This was a concept the author picked up on here and explores deliberately. Max loves the version of Chloe she has in her life now, but it's not Chloe. Not much more than an identical twin of Chloe would be. How could she be truly happy here? This series continues to be much better than it has any right to be, and I think this one is slightly better than the first one. The main plot is worse, but the character interactions and angst better fit what worked best with the video game its based on, and it just takes a bit more time to breathe.

    Good! So the story picks up after the first volume ended where Max is now living in another reality where Chloe and Rachel are together. Max then meets someone who could possibly also have powers like hers. I'll start off by saying I still love the writing of these books! Emma Vieceli knows how to write good stories and dialogue between these characters. She definitely understands these characters well and writes them in a way that's faithful to the games! I also love how Emma Vieceli expands on Good! So the story picks up after the first volume ended where Max is now living in another reality where Chloe and Rachel are together.

I also love how Emma Vieceli expands on the powers of this universe and how they work. I always wondered if there were other people with powers when I played the first game and here those questions are answered. The artwork by Claudia Leonardi and Andrea Izzo is still just as good and captures the looks of the games very well. Only thing I didn't really like was the ending that felt a little anti-climatic. I was kind of expecting a mind-blowing ending but this volume kind of just ends a bit too neatly for our characters. Still, I am excited about the next volume! Recommend this one if you like Life is Strange!

    Take my money. I can’t wait to see what happens with Chloe and Max now that Rachel Amber is back (!!!) in an alternate universe. The first volume was incredible. I will go wherever Emma Vieceli wants to take these characters. UPDATE: Still loving this comic. After playing Max’s game and playing the Before the Storm prequel where I got to witness the heartbreakingly tragic love story of Chloe Price and Rachel Amber, it is beautiful to see them together in a universe where she was never murdered.

After playing Max’s game and playing the Before the Storm prequel where I got to witness the heartbreakingly tragic love story of Chloe Price and Rachel Amber, it is beautiful to see them together in a universe where she was never murdered. But it’s also sad and difficult for Max Caulfield, who had love with Chloe, but not this Chloe. A different Chloe, who she may have abandoned in another universe. Mind-blowing, I know. Add in a new superpowered young man and you have a very interesting arc. Looking forward to Vol. 3.

    4.5/5 A must-read for any Life is Strange fan! After the trippy events of the last volume, Max finds herself living together with Chloe and a very much alive Rachel Amber. While Max yo-yos between her joy at seeing Chloe and Rachel happy and her own anguish over missing her previous life with Chloe, she discovers another person with powers like herself. I enjoyed the more timey~wimey~ elements of the first book, but this was an excellent follow-up and I can't wait to see what happens next.

    I think my enjoyment of this was frustrated by my reading it out of order. That said, engaging sci-fi plot, ladies loving ladies, and beautiful art.

    I care and worry about these kids a lot. I am glad they are doing relatively okay after the video game! Need to check up on them again soon, though.

    The second chapter in the Life is Strange comic epilogue brings back a fan favorite character. However, I thought this was more or less for fan service. I don't really consider it much of a spoiler, due to her being on this volume's cover, but Rachel Amber is back. I thought it was cool to have all 3 of the series' main characters together and getting to know each other, but I often wondered if it was really necessary. Or if it takes away from the seriousness and tragedy of the game's events. I f The second chapter in the Life is Strange comic epilogue brings back a fan favorite character.

I fear that they will use parallel universes as an excuse to bring back dead characters and make everyone happy like in Marvel or DC comics. Aside from that, this volume continues the wonderful feeling that Life is Strange conveys. I think Tristan is an interesting character and gives us more knowledge about the people with special abilities in the Life is Strange universe. I can't wait to see what happens in the next volume.

    All my high expectations from the first volume were definitely met. I'm curious to where this will go next! It's hard for me to see Max at this alternate reality. I feel so bad for her to loose the Chloe she knows.

    So... Volume 2. At the end of Volume 1 we saw Max had traveled to an alternate reality where Chloe and Rachel are both alive and well. Volume 2 quickly informs us that they're actually a couple in this reality and that Max has been living with them for the past two years (Volume 1 took place in 2014 and Volume 2 takes place in 2016) playing third wheel.

At the end of Volume 1 we saw Max had traveled to an alternate reality where Chloe and Rachel are both alive and well. Volume 2 quickly informs us that they're actually a couple in this reality and that Max has been living with them for the past two years (Volume 1 took place in 2014 and Volume 2 takes place in 2016) playing third wheel. I'm sure that's healthy. Beyond Chloe and Rachel's couple issues and Max trying to keep her background a secret, the only real mystery kind of pushing the narrative forward is the introduction of a guy named Tristan who may or may not be a "jumper" himself. I'll admit I was intrigued by this new character (well, equal parts intrigued and bothered by this apparent detour in the narrative) and thought it might suggest that Max's time in this reality was at an end. Unfortunately, this does not appear to be the case, though I'm left wondering what the purpose behind his appearance was. If you don't mind spoilers, click on the spoiler tags for some of my thoughts on that. (view spoiler)[Tristan is not a jumper like Max, but he somehow has the ability to make people think he's vanished even when he's right in front of them. The fact that the series is introducing a new character with a completely different ability makes me suspect this may be setup for other characters. In fact, if memory serves, it was hinted at that Rachel might have powers of her own. Is Tristan merely laying the groundwork for Rachel to eventually come into her own powers? If so, then that would mean Rachel's going to stick around for at least another volume, possibly more, for better or worse. (hide spoiler)] Unlike the previous volume, there are no clever clues embedded in the panel art to appreciate, no expectations of a reunion back in Arcadia Bay (sadly, there was none), no meddling with alternate realities, and obviously no Pricefield given this is a different reality. Oddly enough however, I was intrigued, and possibly entertained, enough that I made it through to the end, but was sorely disappointed that they ended the story with a cliffhanger that promised to be more interesting than the entirety of Volume 2. The more I think about it, this story feels like an interlude, but to what exactly? Of course, now I have to read Volume 3, if only to see how they handle the cliffhanger, but it might also be the pivotal volume that will define whether the author is going somewhere with this series or not, and whether I agree with that direction. You get an extra life Life Is Strange. Make it count.

    After the event of the first volume, book two goes on to its own direction: the girls are now two years older, living in Los Angeles and Rachel is alive. And she and Chloe are together. Max has carved herself a life there with them but she's feeling kinda blue at times. And then there's a mysterious boy Tristan...

I really liked this volume, it's alternative timeline but of course Max is our Max so there's plenty of inner conflict for her. And the volume tackles on it and things that have come with it: Max and Chloe are friends but they are not quite the versions they used to know. She's also puzzled if there's something she should be doing in this timeline, is there something wrong? Or will she be stuck here? The drama is still quite realistic, just the reasons are a bit magical. How sometimes you can't (for reason or another) tell the others everything but then there might be somebody new you can, and that can cause conflicts... It's done well here. Tristan brings higher stake stuff along with him. And he's an interesting addition to the cast, I wanna know what happens to him. It's very good, it has the LiS vibes but it's also becomes its own story, not just rehashing the game's stories.

    This chapter was alright and the art was decent. The story was nice as a whole, though it did feel a bit... I don't know.. Flat, I suppose? It wasn't really interesting or lively, but it wasn't bad by any means. It was still okay and nice for what it was. The title "Waves" probably summarizes it... This story is like a gentle wave, not like a surf adventure,.. if that makes any sense?.. Regardless, I liked the ending well enough to make up for it.

    A decent continuation of the LiS comic series, but without the charm of the first graphic novel or original game. This second volume has strayed a bit from what drew me to this series in the first place, and imo, would have done better to expand on the complexity of relationships between existing characters before adding new ones in the mix. Waves fails in nearly as many places that Dust succeeded.

    The first volume dealt mainly with Chloe and Max, and their thoughts and feelings after the storm. As someone who made the choice to save Chloe, that was rather compelling for me and very well done. In the second volume, the story is trying to come into it's own, and it flounders a bit but seems to find it's way in the end. I am interested to see how it progresses, and the art is really wonderful and worth a bonus star in of itself.

    After finishing Life Is Strange TPB Volume 1: Dust, I just had to continue the journey with reading Life Is Strange TPB Volume 2: Waves, it was that good!!! This second Volume totally didn't disappoint either, I love this comic book series so much, so whenever Volume 3 comes out, you betcha I will buy that one too!

    It kind of reminds me of angst-fics, the kind that is ridiculously painful and sad to read until there (hopefully) comes a turn and things end up happily. At least that's what I hope will happen, because Waves is good but also terribly sad.
