Cody can see when you’re lying.. when you’re jealous.. when you’re greedy. No, really: he can SEE it. He can see what he calls “the lights”, and the lights is what got him sent to San Quentin for a 5 year sentence. Well, that and setting up Budd Waldo. He relied on the lights to get him through prison, until he couldn’t see them anymore. His survival now depended upon “The Pope” for his survival, in exchange for one favor.

Good story + good artwork makes for great reading, and I got both in this issue. Clean, crisp lines and colors grabbed my attention, giving me visual stimulation as well as mental with a great story. Good read. This first issue has grabbed me; let’s see if they can hold on.

The last thing Isaac remembers is being inside a burning prison ship chained next to Boza, the man who shot him and killed his sister. He and Boza (or what’s left of Boza) are the lone survivors of the prison ship crash, stranded on an unknown planet… that is until Luca and her gang saves him. They take him to Scare City, where he finds that the whole planet is one big set, every inhabitant is part of a gang – and they all want him and Luca dead.

I really enjoyed both the story line and artwork for this issue! The story grabs you from the beginning, taking you on a thrill ride right from the first page. I love the characters; the way they are drawn and colored are vibrant, and you can see the attitude, hardness and life in each one. I look forward to the journey that the duo of Puryear and Alexander are about to take us on!
