    This issue is basically just to let us know that the leader of the ship may be a bit careless and a bit of a hothead tyrant. I smell a mutiny story coming, It is slightly predictable. Read Full Review

    A nice mix of supernatural and sci-fi. It's a fun read. It's like a Ghostbusters kind of horror... like not scary in the slightest. However, Riggs is a dick and his methods are definitely questionable.

    A better second issue follows the first. The art is still a little off-kilter, but less annoyingly cartoonish in this issue. It's hard to define why this might be, given that it is the same style - perhaps the colouring helps more here. This isn't to say that the artwork feels completely right, but it doesn't feel as wrong as in the first issue.

    The issue also feels tighter narratively. While nothing particularly ground breaking happens, what is presented is a taut a d serves a clear narrative purpose. The first issue was a bit of a mess in this regard, but equally annoying was the throwing multiple ideas and features of the world at you without any explanation. Thankfully, the script doesn't go down the same road, but rather more
