I looooooooved Southern Cross Vol 1 and I basically assumed it could not be topped. This one makes a strong case at least. Clarifying the plot by taking it away from the Southern Cross ship and onto a mining rig, Becky Cloonan and co. just take it to the next level.
It's got the weight of Prometheus, or classic movies like Enemy Mine, but the artistry involved brings colors and shape that elevate it over just another gritty tale.
Make no mistake though - it's gritty. The violence isn't gratuitous, but the general feel packs a punch. You are in a A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1) type world, where no one is really on anyone's side.
OK, this is not entirely true - Cloonan and co. make the protagonists easy-to-like. But still, beyond the nearly-retired woman at the center and a few others - the mining rig is not a fun place to be.
Still - incredible. My graphic novel series of the year is probably tied between this and Nailbiter - but yeah Southern Cross is so good that I will have a hard time giving it anything but #1.
Great work! And incredible art by Andy Belanger and Lee Loughridge!
