The second issue picks up right where the first ended and Aldridge keeps the story moving quickly. There’s a rapid pace, but Aldridge does a great job keeping both the pace and the dialogue moving together.

The dialogue is the strong point of the story. There’s a definate noir feel to it. The futuristic setting helps set Vic Boone apart from all the other noir-ish stories that have been popping up lately. That it feels like an old time PI adventure is a credit to Aldridge as the setting is definately sci fi. You can envision Vic as a classic gumshoe.

The plot is fairly standard, it’s the future setting that helps make it different. The setting is used to help drive the plot but it’s not overpowering. You don’t get lost in the future. Most science fiction books try to get some shock value out of it being in the future. They try to draw attention to the fact that it’s the future by showing the robots or some other aspects. Vic Boone doesn’t do that. The setting is just what it is. Like a book taking place in present day New York, it’s used in the plot only as background, and that’s how the future is handled in Vic Boone.

It’s a good thing.

Geoffo’s art is nice. Not typically a style I really get into, but it works for this story. He does a good job choosing the different colors to help highlight different areas and/or people. The work is highly detailed.

Another solid issue. This is definately worth picking up.
