You have to love space-land mouths!

What a strong first issue this was. I went into this book completely ignorant about what the series was about or who had written it, or anything, honestly. All I knew was that it had an awesome cover with wonderful colorwork and that I was going to read it. Within two pages I had a feeling I was going to be pleased with the story at least, and when I flipped past the Black Hammer/Justice League crossover advertisement and was greeted with great pencilwork  beneath electric-neon colors, I knew this would be a fun and visually exciting read in addition.

Something incredible has happened to the main protagonist, an RN named Evelyn Pierce, she’s been transported from her bedroom to a creative and visually original piece of reality in space, or something, and then back to her home with, it would seem, two other versions of herself from alternate dimensions, or something.

Phillip Sevy is hitting all the right notes, for me, when it comes to great sci fi, or any genre, he’s taking his time with revealing what’s going on. There was little to no exposition, with the story and the art organically informing us as to what’s happening. The story left me with quite a few questions that I now feel need answering, good work, sir!

The art in the book is very good, in all departments. This is a book that wouldn’t be out of place as an example of what’s possible when a single individual writes, draws, inks and colors a book when they know what they want and have the talent to achieve it.

The books colorwork in particular, however, stood out to me above the pencils. I relished Mr. Sevy’s use of a, generally, bright palette that seemed to pop up from the page and straight into my stupid eyes. He made extensive use of purples, blues and lavenders that I can’t seem to get enough of these past few months

In the middle of the book there’s a two-page spread that features the strange sliver/piece of reality that I mentioned above, that was the best example, to me, of everything I like about this book visually. It had strong pencils with very good use of color and spontaneous seeming creativity throughout the illustration. Imagine floating through outer-space on a piece of land that looks like an artist who had eaten too much LSD created it and you’ll have a sense of what it looks like.

I enjoyed this book and I think any who give it a shot will as well. I myself am keen to read the next issue, as well as the three that follow it.

When you’re done cleaning the urine that a pregnant woman accidentally squirts in your face you should buy this book and…

Read It!
