To be blunt this book was like the good old Marvel comics of the 1970s when things happened that you never expected. Did I expect that the Guardian of the Republic was going to find a home in the future? HOW does he find a home in the future? Its a greal twist...but it does involve Barbarella. Yes, the Barbarella!
It is a fun adventure and José Luis Ruiz Pérez's artwork fits the bill here. I mean, great art combined with a murder mystery a "resurrected" hero and the sexiest adventurer of the sci fi world ("You are very handsome, Maxine. I'm sure we'll ghet along famously") how could you go wrong? This is what comics should be and offer more than reboots or dark misery. Byan Wetstein's colour work is incredible in this.
