A senator with bloodstream full of drugs and a belly full of chicken is stone dead in the morgue, and the trail leads back all the way the Arctic, to a joint U.S./Russian space observatory that has been singularly focused on a single, distant, Earth-like planet. Tony Chu and his partner are about to discover whatever secret this planet holds does not compare to those being kept by the astronomers. Yeah, that weird stuff just got weirder, in a spacey story from Image's deliciously twisted new series about cops, crooks, cooks, cannibals and clairvoyants!

    If the issue misses the mark in one area, it's its ending. Are those last two pages intended to be an ironic punch-line, or an important plot development? Layman and Guillory don't quite pull the scene off as either, and the issue kind of limps to the finish line as a result. Still, seeing as how entertaining the preceding twenty pages were, I won't hold that against them too much. Read Full Review
