In the second issue of Tinseltown we start right where we left off with Abigail preparing herself to do something she never expected to do on the Utopia Studios lot. With a man in danger on the top of a water tower she chooses to jump into action when no one else will. The story though does not stay on the lot and we see Abigail trying to find herself and grow in her role as officer.
After being on the top of the water tower to help a star named Happy from falling to his death, Abigail wants to find a way to be a better officer. She and her friend Betty decide to try and wrangle some cowboys after Abigail has a lackluster date with her ice cream man beau. Instead of just trying to get a date, she also convinces one of the men to teach her how to shoot a gun. Abigail is still dealing with some growing pains and trying to figure out how to become what she considers to be a real police officer.
Tinseltown #2 works to show how Abigail is trying to find herself and determine how she can achieve her goal of becoming an LAPD police officer. There are also hints of historical elements including morality clauses, which some studios did include in contracts, and there is a brief appearance by Teddy Roosevelt when Betty and Abigail are meeting cowboys. This issue also briefly teases a possible larger mystery and ends with a great cliffhanger. You can find Tinseltown #2 in stores on May 30th.
