After waking up without memories, Amelia attempts to traverse a Shrieker
devoured New York to find her parents. Along her path she finds, Survivors, an abandoned home, and a Shrieker trap. Just in the nick of time, Amelia is rescued by her new fellow survivors Eleanor, and Ace. Together now they’ve set fourth into darkness to find refuge from the group of Shriekers hunting them. Only to find every thing they once knew has been long gone.
Interstate 18 (somewhere) starts Issue #2, as Eleanor from previous issue saved Amelia and Ace the dog. Trying to get a grip on reality, Amelia asks Eleanor how she was able to find them. Eleanor replies about tracking Ace since he was three.
Remaining calm and trying to get to safety Ace starts barking, immediately after Eleanor is trying to figure out what is wrong. The gigantic spider has jumped on top of the vehicle.
This situation with one of the monster’s of this universe is finally defeated, or surrendered and fled away. Eleanor gets the vehicle running again and they bolt it out of there.
We even get s glimpse into the past for Eleanor and what she kind of went through, when news first hit about the “end of the world”. It seems El, “got old” and wasn’t much of a carer and seemed to be hitting the bottle.
As we approach the ending here, with the abandoned NASA secret location of a possible evacuation pod. Amelia could be headed to safety, while Eleanor and Ace, stand for their final possible moments of being surrounded by many monsters.
But it seems Amelia has something more inside or should I say within her. As the escape pod crashes downward.
My final thoughts of Issue #2, artwork is very atmospheric and very detailed of what can be done. However, my only issue I found was the unnecessary dark text bubbles. I understand it’s trying to be part of the atmosphere, but I think it should be a normal text bubble, white background with black text.
Kickstarter Relaunch May 31st.
