Invisible Kingdom, Volume 2: Edge of Everything: 02/14/22

Invisible Kingdom, Volume 2: Edge of Everything

Invisible Kingdom, Volume 2: Edge of Everything by G. Willow Wilson and Christian Ward (Artist) is the second volume, collecting issues six through ten. Our intrepid delivery crew and their ship have been captured and now they need to decide: try to escape or give up and become crew? Meanwhile the None is in heat for lack of a better word and has her eyes on the captain.

After the first volume's breakneck pace, I understand the need to a breather volume but damn, this one is glacial. If we stall them in space while the bigger threats are gathering, maybe we can up the sexual tension between characters?

No. I don't care enough about any of the Sundog's crew or the None they picked up. With the scavenger plot feeling like Firefly fanfic, the sexual tension here reads like Shepherd Book suddenly getting the hots for Mal Reynolds.

There's a third volume In Other Worlds. If I read it, I'll borrow it from the library.

Three stars
