    Geek'd Out - Cameron Kieffer Dec 13, 2022

    The art by Zulema Scotto Lavina is simply spectacular, particularly in the sharp contrast between set-pieces. The bright and shiny buildings that house the upper-crust in their subtly futuristic outfits could not be more different than the grit and grime of the citys lower levels and their denizens. Which-Wheres design has a distinctly 90s comic book babe influence but stops short of crossing over into creepy sex-bot territory. Her wardrobe near the end of the issue seems to say Cyberpunk Halloween Pin-Up Special but it strangely works and never comes off as gratuitous. Valentina Cuomos colors add to the aesthetic and propel the art to a whole new level. The overall look of the issue has a 90s vibe but with enough modern sensibilities to keep it from feeling like pure nostalgia. Read Full Review

    Which-Where's wish feels like Robin Williams' Andrew in Bicentennial Man. Each offers up some small portion in order for something more. But instead of a pound of flesh, the issue indicates exactly what Which-Where offers her new user. Hexware transforms the ghost in the machine into a poltergeist. Read Full Review
