Scarlet jumps straight into the action and doesn’t stop in this dystopian future where Portland has been quarantined.

Scarlet is the boss but just barely keeping it together and keeping everyone happy enough with the plan but that could all change in issue 2. This is a really cool comic the artwork makes it feel end of the worldy and the design matches the tone perfectly, jumping straight into the action really makes you feel part of it. I love Scarlet addressing the readers and showing us around as if we were a new recruit learning the ropes it totally draws you in and gets you invested in the story.

I’m guessing that whatever gets discussed in the next issue doesn’t resolve the conflict or it could be a pretty short story. I can’t wait to see what goes wrong and what it has on the band of rebels

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
