Comic Book Review: Southern Cross vol 1 by Becky Cloonan

cover80333-mediumWow, one issue in and I’m hooked. Becky Cloonan’s writing sucks you right in – from the very beginning. Some stories need a little time to get you interested. That’s when I’m glad this is a volume and I won’t have to wait for the second issue.

And that’s when I realize this is a volume 1, meaning that it’s not self-contained, dammit. That usually means a cliff-hanger. Ah, well, I’ll enjoy the ride and look forward to volume 2.

I really like the art and the use of color.

And the story is so intense, I just turned (swiped) page after page. I love the characters, I love the story, I love the mystery.

And, yup. Dammit. Dammit, dammit, DAMMIT! I have to wait for volume 2.

If it’s as good as this one, it will be with the wait.

In the meantime, I’ll have to check out Cloonan’s other stuff.

Thanks to NetGalley and Image Comics for a copy in return for an honest review.
