When an alien virtual reality machine spirals out of control and encompasses an all-too-familiar planet, the Doom Patrol traverses the boundaries of a new computer-generated reality to restore the world back to “not exactly normal but at least not CGI.”

Review: Far Sector #2

Far Sector #2

Far Sector #2 is a hell of a detective story. Though it takes place on an alien world and involves a Green Lantern, at its heart, it’s a crime tale. It’s also fantastic.

Writer N.K. Jemisin keeps the story grounded in numerous ways. Though there’s aliens and a fantastical world, Jemisin focuses on the main characer Jo. It’s an interesting story that cares as much about giving its main lead depth as it does the action and mystery. But that extends beyond Jo. Jemisin makes sure we learn about the world and the alien races it inhabits.

What’s most interesting is Jemisin keeping the story familiar. There’s the relationships and interactions between characters that stands out. But, there’s also familiar concepts like drug abuse and use. It’s sci-fi being used to mask real-world issues.

The art by Jamal Campbell is amazing. Joined by Deron Bennett on lettering, the comic is as amazing visually as it is to read. There’s a style to it all that feels fresh and fantastical. The designs are hauntingly beautiful and reflect the concepts presented. They invoke emotion but at the same time feel devoid of it. Underneath that beauty something feels sinister about it all. The art evokes an emotional read adding to Jemisin’s detailed dialogue.

Far Sector #2 is a fantastic follow-up. It adds depth to characters and the world while moving the murder mystery forward. Only two issues in a twelve-issue series, I’m already saddened there’s an endpoint. This is a world I already want to see more of.

Rookie Green Lantern Sojourner “Jo” Mullein’s investigation of the first murder in 500 years hits a snag when the murderer is murdered. Whatever’s going on, it’s something to do with Switchoff, a highly illegal genetic cocktail that restores dangerous feelings to the emotionless citizens of the City Enduring…

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Annihilation Scourge: Beta Ray Bill #1/Annihilation Scourge: Silver Surfer #1 (Marvel) – The return of Marvel’s cosmic has been entertaining so far and though the creative team has been different from the previous Annhilation events, it feels like a solid follow up.

The Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – Frank Miller’s latest chapter in his take on Batman.

Far Sector #2 (DC Comics/DC’s Young Animal) – The first issue introduced us to a new Green Lantern and a brand new world. It was an amazing opening with great writing and fantastic art. We’re excited to see where it goes.

Doom 2099 #1/Spider-Man 2099 #1 (Marvel) – Marvel’s return to the world of 2099 has been weird but we’re holding in hoping it all becomes clearer.

Dying is Easy #1 (IDW Publishing) – A new series from Joe Hill and Martin Simmonds follows a disgraced former cop turned stand-up comic turned felon? We’re intrigued.

The Goon #7 (Albatross Funnybooks) – One of the most fun series out there right now.

Rai #2 (Valiant) – One of the best new series of the years. It’s not too late to get in on this which focuses on the future of the Valiant universe.

The Red Mother #1 (BOOM! Studios) – BOOM! has been rocking the new series with each seeing numerous sell-outs. We’re in for this new horror series.

Symbiote Spider-Man: Alien Reality #1 (Marvel) – The first volume surprisingly worked as it explored a new chapter during Spider-Man’s blacksuit days. We’re hoping for more of the same fun.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #100 (IDW Publishing) – Hitting such a huge number, we’re excited to see what IDW has in store.

Undiscovered Country #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue was fantastic as a world contingent entered a United States that has been cut off from the world for decades. The reveal was completely unexpected and promises a wild ride.
