Helen and her robot companion Arther reluctantly find themselves deep beneath the surface of the mysterious planet, exploring a vast cave system. An impossible encounter with a key figure from Helen's murky past brings the very nature of reality into question, opening a rift between Helen and Arther. As Helen's memories trickle back, their path towards escape grows more and more perilous, leading to a cliffhanger that perfectly fits the definition of "face-melting."

    Yes. So far, the second issue is better than the first and that is saying a lot. While the themes can be intense, the story is so wonderful that you can't help but keep wondering about where Helen is and what this place means to her. It isn't just a place to torment her, but instead a place to teach her a lesson perhaps? A place that has her family? Maybe she is in the hospital and dying and this is her alternate dream sequence? Who knows, but I am so very intrigued to continue learning more about Helen and her adventure to nowhere. Read Full Review

    Canopus takes a bit further down the rabbit hole with Helen and how she's coping with this situation in all the expected ways. She's doing her best but the desire to have her father back is so strong that it's overpowering common sense because she wants it so badly. I really like seeing how she manages through so much of this here and what she does to blind herself to it. Arther has it the hardest overall as he tries to navigate her emotions and the reality of what he is and it really helps to make him sympathetic. The flashback material goes a long way toward fleshing out Helen as well which is a big plus and I'm curious to see how all of this is really going to bind together by the end. Read Full Review
