Title: Southern Cross
Post by: Perry on May 23, 2015, 01:29:11 PM
Issue #3

Wow, the art hit me hard at first, but then settled in and I didn't notice as badly as I did at first. I kinda remember that happening with issue #1 but not with issue #2 as I read them so close together, I guess the art style didn't have a chance to get out of my mind and I was still adapted to it. But yeah, at first it was jarring.

Also need to read a recap. I was kinda lost with the first couple pages as I had forgotten what had happened at the end of issue #2, so between the art and that lost feeling, I was not loving this issue for the first 2 or 3 pages.

After that it settled in, but I was still not blown away by this issue. It moved the story forward like it should, but while I was originally very interested in what was going on with the missing people, her sister included, this issue didn't really pull on those strings as much. Hoping issue 4 turns this around. I will have to remember to look at this issue about 3 minutes prior to reading the next so my eyes can adjust to this art once more.

6 outta 10 -  weird haircuts (just a dead even average comic all around. Nothing glaring either way. Just here.)

I felt the same way Perry.  Not sure why since I read the first three back to back.   ;D

Still curious about the missing sister and the Captain is a strange one.

That Captain is strange as hell.  :D Don't trust him at all.

I want more info about the space-drive they are using. That is
where they showed her sister before, right?

And maybe the art was just sloppier in this issue then. I didn't notice it being so ... rushed looking before. I know it wasn't the best, but it didn't hit me as bad or rough for me last time either, so I don't know what's up.
