So let's get down to it. I really liked this one from Steve Niles and let me explain why. Firstly, it's a science fiction story that brings it's characters near Europa. Europa is fucking cool. In case you weren't aware, its one of Jupiter's many moons and possesses on the higher possibilities in our solar system to being home to life. It's fucking cool. In this story, the crew of the ship Frankenstein (lol just joking, the ship isn't called Frankenstein), are traveling to this part of our solar system to find a chick who's been taken in by some cultist.
2. I received a good sense of who the characters are, what kind of attitudes they have and how they interact with each other. A brief look at their relationships with one another. This is just enough to get me interested.
3. Beautiful panels of space. Need I saw more? Really?
4. An exciting and surprising development that left me with questions and wonder at the very end of the issue which is a MUST in monthly serials.
Black Mask Comics has been making me really happy lately. I love current series We Can Never Go Home and Space Riders. Now I can add Disciples to the list of monthly purchases.
