Reviews & Summaries

Excellent first volume. I hope the rest of the series lives up.

A woman wearing an experimental liquid-plutonium bodysuit is shot down by an off-the-books government agency over the California desert, and the suit rains down on an unsuspecting photographer (as well as a deranged homeless man). Now the agency is hunting the photographer, who wants nothing more than to fix her shattered marriage, help her sick sister, and play with her dog.

So far so awesome. Solid characters, gripping plot, plenty of tension, good dialogue. I admit to being a little disappointed at the unexpected hints of supernatural (a possibly prophetic sister, the murdered woman appearing to reside in the suit after she dies). Seems out of place. But it's early yet, I'm inclined to withhold judgment.

Moore is a genius with body language, the guy does amazing things with black lines and white paper. It's weird how, just, normal all the characters look. Realistic. I'm used to at least a few impossibly muscled steroid junkies in graphic novels.

Great new work from Terry Moore

Terry Moore has a real knack for creating realistic, flawed characters that are very relatable. This new series is no exception. One part sci-fi adventure, one part great story, one part realistic, personable characters. Check it out!

Great start

This is the story of Julie, a young woman with many secrets, who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. The story is paced well, starting out with a bang (literally) and answering enough questions to keep you interested. You're also never quite sure who the bad guys are, which keeps it interesting. I would say this is for 14+ due to the graphics (there's slight nudity at points) as well as more adult situations (including violence).
