What I like most about this issue is the coloring. It takes full advantage of soft purples setting a tone for mystery and keeping you well aware of the limitless space around us at all times. Fox really brings the characters to life with his skillful hand. I love the facial expression within each subtle interaction. The playfulness of both Malcolm and Becky actually reminded me largely of the Finder series by Carla Speed McNeil. I suppose I could be a little bias but I see a strong resemblance within the pictures as well.
Over-all I found this issue to be emotional and action-packed. A solid beginning all around which gives us a little of who the characters are, how they got where they are, some action thrown in there to drive us forward, with a little longing for a mystery solved. You are really going to enjoy this change of pace from my regular recommendations. Enjoy!
