Quick Thoughts (D.E.A.R.): Ignition City. Cover by: Felipe Massafera. [ mild spoilers ahead ]. I've been on a slight Warren Ellis marathon: the teaser of his new series Cemetery Beach has been a bit of a push. I had left this mini series (Ignition) unfinished for some time. I've been in a second read-through of the first volume of Injection and there's some other stuff I'll be posting eventually. Ignition City: it feels like it took some time for it to really start (around the 3rd issue). Although I admit that's maybe due to a reading gap. When the characters have their story/background told a bit more, I was more invested (the world building and history also kept me along in the ride). .
The retrofuturistic designs fit the tone of the story. I can't say they're nice, 'cause they don't look that way, haha. (Sort of like having stuff you would see all rusty, used in Mos Eisley from a Star Wars movie). The main character's search for answers and the reveal near the end kept me interested, as well as what I previously mentioned. It's a clever reveal; I didn't even notice the set up. And I know that Warren Ellis' approach to a series is usually shorter stories (a mini series), but I wouldn't mind if he revisits this alternate history world (not happening. I know) and tells another tale (in another part of Earth, or in space, etc..) #GianlucaPagliarani #WarrenEllisWednesday #FelipeMassafera #AvatarPress #DigikoreStudios #InkedReality #ComicBookMiniSeries #ChrisDreier #Comicsgram #WarrenEllisWednesdays #AvatarPressComics
