Review: Bounty #1

30045

The Gadflies were the most wanted criminals in the galaxy—robbing corporations to redistribute wealth to the destitute. Now, with a bounty to match their reputation, the Gadflies are forced to abandon banditry for a career as bounty hunters . . . ’cause if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em—then rob ’em blind!

Rat Queens creator Kurtis Wiebe joins forces with pop-comic sensation Mindy Lee to present a femme fatale sci-fi caper of epic proportions!

Wiebe has made something with Bounty that fans of Cowboy Bebop should pickup. While it keeps the action and humor of the acclaimed anime, it is much more colorful in nature. The story is lighthearted, fun, and quick paced. If you like high-energy, humorous sci-fi you shouldn’t miss this.

The cartoon influenced, colorful art is visually eye-catching.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see a cartoon adaption happen, given both the artwork and story. The action scenes are polished and have a great flow between the panels.  If this issue is just a hint at things to come, I’m not sure I can wait for more.
