In the near future where man had to take to the skies above the radiation and pollution, survivors are being attacked by pirates led by a man known as “The Judge.” Cola, a teenage girl fighter pilot, is trying to find a new gunner to replace the one she lost last week. She locates a loner name Tug who was working at a bar located on Earth. The two go back to the flying fortress named The Dawn when they are attacked by the Judge’s raiders. Can the fighter pilots and jet-pack warriors fend off the raiders who want the fabled ship that never needs to be refueled?
This is a solid, intriguing story and my interest is definitely piqued. Zach Howard’s art is fantastic, I love his style. Nelson Daniel’s colors show a dark, dreary future only to be brightened by colors of battle.
