Review: Bounty #2
Sisters Nina and Georgie are bounty hunters, wanted criminals, and flat broke. In their quest to finally get paid, they’ve taken on a dangerous job on a familiar planet. It’s a showdown between old enemies and new allies as the epic sci-fi adventure continues!
Humor, action, and an odd degree of retro-futurism are packed into Bounty #2. I love how somehow despite inter-planetary travel being possible, selfies are still a thing. It’s funny how despite chasing after a known criminal, they agree to take a selfie in the middle of the chase. It’s an entertaining detail that sets the series apart of the type of humor you’d expect from writer Kurtis Wiebe. Details like that adds to the series and helps us the readers tell these characters love their job and have fun as they go after criminals.
The art by Mindy Lee is solid and detailed. It manages to showcase some interesting details as the characters chase their bounty. Lee shows some great detail that clearly delineates a division between the city, the graffiti ridden slums and the cleaned, polished towers of those with at least some money. That sort of work helps flesh out the world.
