From Image, the second issue of The New World will rock YOUR world!

The visuals are absolutely stunning again in this second issue. Tradd Moore, with Colorist Heather Moore and Flatter Ludwig Olimba, combine forces to produce some of the most spectacular pages I have seen all year. Ironically, this issue is released the same week as the graphic novel version of Beatles: Yellow Submarine, and I can actually see parallels in the colour palette!

It’s ‘every colour is a good colour when used wisely’, I suppose, and this title really hammers home the potential for the clever use of full spectrum colour. The drawing is crisp and precise, the psychedelia all surrounding and astounding.

The story? Ales Kot is weaving the tale of a young female assassin, who has too kind a heart for the job. But she’s been given an ultimatum: kill a young troublemaker. The trouble is, she has just hooked up with this guy! What will she do, follow commands, or follow her heart??

As always, the story is not as simple as it sounds. Things are getting complicated, and it’s just issue 2!

The New World is a quick read, with little dialogue and a lot of art, but believe me, it’s as entertaining a ride as you’re gonna find for your $3.99! Check it out!

Image, The New World #2, $3.99 for 23 pages of content. Rated Mature.

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
