It’s life or death for Lilly as the sting operation she never wanted goes horribly wrong. What’s a taxi driver-slash-bounty hunter to do? Steal a car, of course!
What happens when the first issue of a series doesn’t really wow you? Some may just give up and not touch the book ever again. Sometimes though there is a chance for the second issue to correct the mistakes of the first and finish reeling in the reader by finishing the initial story line. This is what happens in Satellite Falling #2 as the team of Steven Horton and Stephen Thompson are able to get the readers in hook, line, and sinker with where they are taking their new series.
After finishing up the job from previous issue, Lilly is presented with a mystery which really hits home and makes you want to know what she is going to do next. Thought it is a bit convenient with Lilly knowing the little slave girl she rescues but it helps to show just how small the satellite is and how easy it is for someone close to anyone living on it to be affected by the black marker working in the shadows around them.
The art by Stephen Thompson is still on point. The different effects he employs in the comic really make it visual eye candy. Between Lilly’s holograms and the art from the chase scene, Thompson has shown just how much talent he is bringing to the table with this piece.
Satellite Falling is starting to shape up to be a series readers will want to look out for. With two issues it already has a great setup and a mystery which will keep the readers eager with anticipation for the next one.
