Capitalizing on the immense success of Kyle Gonce’s first work, the much-anticipated sequel to Lyle vs. Kyle greatly lives up to the hype many of its fans have expected.
The story involves a rematch between the vicious Lyle, infamous for his many schemes around the universe of Columbia, Maryland. Lyle aims to capture the "Median," one of three realms previously under the domain of the Love Conductor. This may seem fatal for our beloved protagonist, Kyle, but he has a trick up his sleeve; an alter ego, the Love Demon. Using this to his advantage, Kyle can now even the odds.
Although Gonce largely produced this sequel on his own, with only a few cameo appearances of other characters, he managed to truly hit it out of the park. Other notable talents include Joe Gower, Jackson Hufman, Jake Taylor, and Bella Carstea.
Critical reception of Lyle vs Kyle 2 has been incredibly positive.
"Kyle Gonce is 2022’s [coolest] man alive," said junior Aidan Vogts, as he watched the work of art alongside friends.
"This is equal to Martin Scorsese and M. Knight Shyamalan’s work," commented junior Riley Suszkiw, noting the directorial and artistic mastery of the content.
If anything, this work proves that the Lyle vs Kyle story has drawn in many devout fans who only want to see more content.
"I just feel like a big shot! A B-I-G S-H-O-T!" said Gonce. It seems this enthusiasm is best reflected in the mastermind behind this cinematic universe.
A secret code hidden in the middle of the show can help reveal where the magnificent series is headed next. Decoding this, the date "May 2, 2022" appears, potentially hinting when Lyle vs Kyle, Hell Mode, the third installment of this series as confirmed by the director, releases.
Without exception, many fans at Glenelg and across Howard County would be thrilled for this release.
