Agent 1.22 goes to Phobos to retrieve Project Vulcan from an outpost ravaged by the Tempest Virus. While there she must choose between the mission and a man.

Following on from the excellent #0 we start to get to the real crux of Agent 1.22. we start of with flashbacks and nightmares, which link nicely into the final couple of pages of the story. In between we have a recovery mission for the agent, which isn’t for people but for data. Obviously some people aren’t happy with this state of affairs and we get a very well laid out action sequence.
The story is very well told, if a little wordy, but the majority of those words are from the companion AI and they do add something to the story – especially when the agent makes the decision she does…
The ending of the story is interesting and leads us on to the arc and the main story. It’s a bit of a surprise and I’m interested to see where this all leads and how it all looks together.
I enjoy the art, and I like the sci-fi feel to it all. The droids where especially good and have me a ‘Portal’ feel to it all..
