Jesse, the little girl in the box shipped from Korea, has made some inappropriate new friends. Made in Korea #3 is from Image.

Jesse’s new friends are adult males, and they like to play with guns and explosives. Anarchists or just asshats; thieves with a clue; or bandits with no brains. Doesn’t matter, but Jesse is being groomed to break the law.

There’s loads of tension and weapons in the new issue. Writer Jeremy Holt is exploring this concept in an imaginative way: the electronic child who has escaped the usual programming routine. Just who IS our family? Artist George Schall contributes cool clean lines and colour to the tale. The uncomplicated graphics serve this story of electronics versus organics. Lettering by Adam Wollet.

Recommended for those who want their scifi to have a human, childlike vulnerability.

Includes a three-page backup story, written and illustrated by Eunjoo Han.

Image, Made in Korea #3, $3.99 for 27 pages of content. 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!!
