I was very surprised to see this book in my stack this week, since issue one came out only two weeks ago. What few qualms I had after that last issue were completely dealt with in this one. There was more dialogue than action, but it dealt with continuing the story. Issue #1 had the hard task of world establishing. While Ellis explores the world in this issue, it doesn’t feel as bogged down as #1 did.

The art was just as great as it has been. The characters have an offbeat look. The faces are almost misshapen, but it lends well to the look and feel of this off-kilter past. Ignition City itself is almost made a character in itself through the look Pagliarani has given it. In this way, it reminds me of Sin City, where the setting is just as important as the characters and the story.

What I’m most excited about is the potential of this series. Ellis has made it known that he plans on doing a 5 issue set of these about once a year (depending on your faith of the guy actually producing things on time, you have every right to be cynical about this). I feel like there is a lot to explore here. The current arc in itself is exciting, but this world lends itself to so many possibilities. The last space-port town in a world abandoning spaceflight is ripe with possibility, and that possibility excites me.

Story: 5 - Excellent
