This is kind of an origin book, not for the evil school, but for our six characters. Each of them gets an issue which delves a little into their past. It does double the amount of questions that you have and makes the book seem much more fragmented than the first volume but you don't mind.
This is definitely a brave book with the mystery increasing exponentially and flashing back (and maybe forward) in time so there is a lot to keep track of. There are some interesting decisions such as the importance of a cheerleading team in a school for psychopaths but on the whole you want to stick with it. It's the throwaway comments that really get your interest and make this feel like a very measured and controlled enigma.
The art is just as good as the first volume and there are some very subtle changes to the style during flashbacks that works particularly well. The covers - which are gorgeous - have been included before each issue. As these are single issue tales this works but hopefully we will go back to the seamless story of the first volume next time.
A very high Thumbs Up indeed!
