Misfit City Volume 2: 07/25/19

Misfit City Volume 2

Misfit City Volume 2 by Kirsten Smith is the conclusion to Misfit City Volume 1. The friends after a long night of chasing down leads, escaping from villains, believe they have found the true path to the treasure. They just have to stay on the ghost pirate's good side.

In the Goonies, which was the inspiration for the comic, albeit through a parody of it, the treasure is on the ship and the ship is inside a forgotten about cave, In the end, the kids triumphantly sail it out of the cave while escaping the bad guys. From how everyone searching for the treasure in Misfit City acts, one can assume that the The Gloomies had a similar ending.

But the pirate of Cannon Cove had other plans for her treasure. Finding it takes homework, cunning, and a new perspective.

Comparison of change in placement on the road narrative spectrum between volumes one and two

In terms of the road narrative spectrum, the second book is an advancement in the spectrum placement. While the travelers remain marginalized throughout the duology, where they manage to travel to advances from uhoria, a no-time, to utopia, a no-place. The treasure is on an unknown, invisible location, available only to the most worthy of treasure hunters. Their final route isn't through the cornfield of the previous book. Instead it's through a maze. There is danger. There are blind alleys.
