The International Company known as Vescell specializes in what is commonly known as 'Vtrans', the transferring of a person's mind and spirit from one body into another. Former Icarus City Detective, Mauricio 'Moo' Barrino is now Vescell's best agent, handling the most high profile and dangerous cases. In the seedy world of a high end corporate espionage, where mysticism and guns clash, and money is tainted with sin, Agent Mauricio Barrino fights against the demons of fate while trying to reach the heaven of his destiny. Be prepared for the bar-raising, sci-fi noir epic that is VESCELL.

    The characters and the relationships are interesting and entertaining (particularly Machi), the dialogue is well done and the plot is so vast and high concept that its hard to resist. Fast, fun, funny, action packed insanity; I must sound like Im working for Image at this point, but Vescell is a great comic. Read Full Review

    Moo is a cool dude. Hes got the ladies on lock, he dresses smooth, he has cool weapons and his job keeps him on the move. Too bad its a little too speedy for the reader. Not only is there the prospect of people switching bodies, but this story by Enrique Carrion features sexual cyborgs, girlfriend spirits and alternate demon-infested worlds. I started this story thinking it to be a sleek, serious, neo-noir or something akin to the misguided 2010 Repo Men movie, but it literally turned into something else as I witnessed a hot woman transform into a hotter woman.

    I would be more interested in this book personally if they stuck to a couple of aspects rather than putting so many in. If it was the sci-fi and the intrigue aspect, I think the book would be fantastic. But, I think there are just too many things going on to really pull many readers into this book. Read Full Review

    Vescell is another comic with a lot of promise that I was looking forward to, but fell flat on its face with grand ideas flawed with poor execution. And while moments between the characters were enjoyable and there was a flimsy connection between the stories that probably will make sense in the future,currently, not much makes sense, andnothing felt executed properly and little work seemed to go into the art and story. The only way this issue can redeem itself is if the next is great " which, with an idea like this, should be attainable. Read Full Review
