And I was like I dunno? I read it partly because the dude who wrote this also wrote Saga, so I was like, well, it has to be more interesting than it sounds to me!
And it was. When they discover an iPod - or iPhone? - and then who's behind it being there, well, things get interesting.
Not completely sold on following this one, but I got this in a Humble Bundle and read volume three for the Hugo awards.
I almost gave up on this comic series at page 10 as I had all the homophobia I could take from a comic book. Then Tiffany called Mac out on her shit and told her to knock off the slurs and not make an AIDS joke, and I was well, I like Tiffany. So I kept reading for Tiffany, but by the end of the book I was rooting with all the girls (including Melissa). What a great ride the first 10 issues were; I really picked up my reading pace after they time warped/traveled to 2016. Leaving this story at the end (they have reunited with KJ in the fourth fold) was bittersweet. Although I am not one for 80s nostalgia (I was 10 in 1989) except for music, I really rooted for the four papergirls to get back to 1988 and save the world. Brian K. Vaughn is quickly becoming my favorite indie comic writer - the humor, the emotional turns, the science fiction that isn't too over my head makes for such fun reading. Highly recommend, just take those first few pages with promise that it does it better.
An African horn, a wise man who claims to be a sort of Jinn, and a wish to be human again? Yeah, but he seems to be very sick, and misses the advantages of being Cyborg. Especially when it turns out that a dictator is using the horn to gain money and power, and using children as his chattel: they make the wishes, and they pay the price of those wishes.
Vic wants to save these innocent children who are being duped and used, but can he when he's so feverish he can barely fight? With the horn now out of his hands, what can he do?
So this is gong to be at least a two parter, but this was much better than the last couple of issues, so I'm happy to see this storyline continue!
