Ignition City #2

Written by Warren Ellis
Art by Gianluca Pagliarani

It's only been two weeks since this series debuted, and already the second issue is out. Any bets on how late the fifth issue is going to end up being still?

This issue continues to establish the world of Ignition City, where space travel has been discontinued pretty much around the world, and all the old rocket heroes have come to this settlement to scrape by a meager living.
This issue has Mary digging into the circumstances of her father's death, as the people responsible for it start to circle around her.

Pagliarani's art shows the grit of the city wonderfully, while keeping Mary looking cleaner and much more lively than everyone around her.

Ellis has taken a lot of time in establishing this world, and it's one I hope he's going to return to in subsequent series.
