Invisible Kingdom, Volume 1: Walking the Path: 01/11/22
Invisible Kingdom, Volume 1: Walking the Path by G. Willow Wilson and Christian Ward (Artist) is the start of a science fiction comic book series that is reminiscent of the Descender and Ascender series by Jeff Lemire.
The crew of an underpaid (and thus poorly maintained) delivery crew (think Amazon in space) discover something awry with the ordering system. Meanwhile, a new initiate to a strict religious order discovers financial ties between the convent and the mega-corporation. All hell breaks loose and both the None (yes, that's how it's spelled here) and the crew find themselves in a life and death race against the two massive entities hell bent on killing them.
The inevitable plot twist was obvious from the get go. The Technicolor palette that seems to be the extreme backlash against the grim dark style of the 1990s-2000s is becoming a bit of a cliche.
The second volume is The Edge of Everything (2020). I have it borrowed from the library.
