Some thoughts on this weeks comics from Zenescope Entertainment – Unbound #4 & Red Agent: Island Of Dr Moreau #2
Marna introduces Lucas to two other players: Jordan and her brother, Casper. Jordan, an amateur hacker, thinks she can geo-locate X so they can discover his true identity and stop him in the real world, but first they need to find him inside the game… Meanwhile, time is running out as X is becoming more sophisticated in his killing. And soon the group will learn something terrifying that they never saw coming.Writer: Ralph Tedesco

The ‘X’ killer makes his plans, but we also get some opposition too. I like the cross between the Ether and the real world. There is some really good bonding going on here. The mystery is interesting and we get a kind of answer, but we don’t know the how and the why – one more issue to go!
This was a well told issue with the pace working really well for the story, the art was really good, with the cross between the Ether and real life working well. I liked the fight with the sirens too!
Red Agent: Island Of Dr Moreau #2
A fierce battle with two of Moreau’s hybrid creatures leaves Red and Avril bloodied but unbowed. After following the Doctor’s trail to New Orleans, they discover an underground animal market, that could lead back to the source of these monstrous creatures. Can Red and Avril put an end to this war before it even begins?Writer: Brian Studler

Some undercover work for the duo after the fight at the lab. Red and Avril meet up with an old friend and get down with it all. The action in this issue is all at the beginning, but there are some interesting points here. I wonder if they will get their wish. Meanwhile the animals are causing some problems – a nice twist to spoil the operation. Things look a little bleak, but we’re only halfway through the story!
