Responding to a strangely specific job advertisement, Alan Blake, a distinctly ordinary twenty-something suburban slacker finds himself in the middle of an inter-dimensional task force staffed entirely by superhuman alternate versions of himself. Struggling to fit in, he uncovers a conspiracy that strikes at the very heart of the organisation â€“ a conspiracy that only he can stop.
For a four issue mini series, this certainly packs a lot in! Originally I intended to sit down and read this series over a short period of time, but found myself being drawn in and reading the next issue.
Cy Dethan (Cancertown) writes a very tight script – I found myself thinking of Rob Williams (Cla$$war) in the style. Keeping all the facts together and presentable is a hard job, but Cy performs admirably. With the nature of the story, there is no decompression, there is a lot going on on each page. This is what gets you reading each issue one after another!
Robert Carey’s art is excellent – at first I worried that it was a little too loose, but then soon dispelled this as the art drew me into the story. With the big wide shots I found myself feeling surrounded by the action. Fight and battle scenes feltÂ tenseÂ and full of danger. Gritty in all the right places and sterile where it was needed.
In closing, this is an excellent mini series from an excellent team. Markosia should be proud to showcase such British talent, showing that great things are ahead. This is also a coup for the PSP Comics network and what mobile comics are all about.
