Review: Glacier City – Pilot Chapter

Special “pilot” issue by Jay Faerber and Michael Montenat.

Police Chief Wes Cutter is the only law enforcement in a secluded Alaskan town where everyone has a secret and his closest backup is hours away. There are two kinds of people who live in Alaska. Those born there, and those that are running away from something. And Wes wasn’t born there.

A new series from Panel Syndicate, and this is a ‘pilot issue’, which means that if i gets enough buys, we will see more of it!

I hope it does.

As a pilot issue, we get 50 pages for a pay-what-you-want model, and it is certainly worth your time.

The story covers a lone policeman in ‘Glacier City’ – there is no back up here, any other police are a couple of hours away, and Wes seems to have his work cut out. Not only are there any local difficulties – these include a alcohol smuggling gang, but there is also the weather – snow and ice can cause many more problems!

the build up of all the characters are well told, and each gets a good amount of time on panel to really get a feel for them all – obviously there are some secrets abound, but hopefully we will get more of that in future issues. The use of the snow and the location is well done – not only with the murder mystery, but also as a setting, with the threat of avalanches and exposure.
Ah yes, the murder – you’ve got to have one of those, and the suspects are many – the witness to the previous crime, the victims, or someone else? This was a very well told story.

The art and colours are really well done, with some excellent scenic shots, as well as some really well shown character moments.

I recommend you get on board now, this was a really good read!
