is a four-issue limited series, the second of two CrossGen titles - the other being Ruse
- to be recently revitalized by Marvel. Since the fourth issue just came out last week, I figured this was as good a time as any to do a post about it. The trade - called Out of Time
- comes out in September.
I think there's a fair amount about it that would make it of relevance to scans_daily
, including the facts that the protagonist is an interesting teenage girl, that it passes the Bechdel test at some points, and that there are pirates (including an awesome lady captain) involved.
What brought it to my attention, however, were two of the names on the cover (by Jelena Djurdjevic) of the first issue
- Mike Carey and Leonard Kirk. As a fan of both Carey's work on The Unwritten
and Kirk's work on the first Agents of Atlas miniseries, the idea of a collaboration between the two had instant appeal for me. As I found out later, the storyline and art (including some really nice colouring by Guru eFX) would justify my interest.
13 scans from two issues - 7 from #1 (22 pages) and 6 from #2 (20 pages). The images are different sizes because some are taken from previews and some are my own scans.Note:
There are scenes of grieving (a funeral; in the second set of scans) and scenes of bullying (in both sets of scans). ( Sigil #1: In which we meet our heroine )( Sigil #2: In which Captain Sin is awesome )
Part two coming soon!
