To go any further into describing the tale would ruin the readers’ opportunity to discover this world and these new heroes for themselves. What can be said is that the writer and artist presented a thrilling ride in the opening 24 pages of a double sized first issue that left this reviewer wanting more.
Our heroine and hero bring to this reviewer’s mind such classic pairs as Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy or Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd in the easy way writer Thorne turns the dialogue between Ms. Jacinto and Mr. Lennox in a cross between a ballet and a fifteen round bout worth of Ali and Frazier.
Mr. Thorne, writer that may be best known for a number of short stories and novels set in the Star Trek universe, uses the comics medium to its fullest. His script shows he knows when to let his words do the work and when to let the pictures do the talking. What comes to mind are a few great pages where the visual transitions and dialogue interplay nicely, giving the impression of being both cinematic and novelistic.
