Keith Giffen's Tag was a pleasant surprise; a story of an ordinary man under the burden of a curse that has removed him from the land of the living. Leib effectively carries the torch in this sequel, a story with enough weight to stand independent of its predecessor. Ed is an ordinary man who lives in the guise of an ordinary life, hiding a dark secret from his friends and neighbors: he has survived being tagged. As Ed struggles to come to grips with what he has overcome, he finds himself on an unexpected journey to find the person who has most recently been tagged and stop the curse forever. Leib writes a fast, dramatic story that is just as entertaining as the original. Artist Chee captures a setting that is dark and desperate, a tone well fitted to the story. Tag: Cursed is a strong story that keeps the tradition of horror comics undead and kicking.
