It’s our good luck to see a second issue. Good Luck #2 is from BOOM!

Briefly, there is a Good Luck/ Bad Luck war going on. And those with Bad Luck have been recruited to go into the dangerous Kismet Zone. There is a lot of Department funding riding on this ‘field test’. And a lot of eyeballs are watching. Including those of the omnipresent beings that battle intruders. You can cut the tension with a knife.

Suffice it to say, it’s a bit complicated, but a fascinating Scifi/Apocalyptic combo to read. Writer Matthew Erman creates full depth characters and places them on the chessboard to encounter each other. Stefano Simeone draws and colours a vivid combo, a hallucinatory environment for these wayward young adventurers. The expressions are generous, the colours are explosive, the dreamscape is masterfully realized. Lettering by Mike Fiorentino.

BOOM! Studios, Good Luck #2, $3.99 for 24 pages of content

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!!
