When Willla was a baby gravity turned off, it was on one moment then off the next. Almost as if a greater power flipped a switch.
The day gravity ended her mother was out for a run and sadly, like so many hundreds of thousands of people she was lifted from the surface never to been seen again.
Years later and Willa is a delivery person, whizzing through the city taking parcels from building to building. While out on this day some robbers try their luck until she pulls out a gun and fires, without gravity the force of the shot sends her skyward to certain death, luckily she manages to grab a loose line and pull her self back down to earth… for the most part.
When she returns home her father explains that he knows how to turn the gravity back on. To be continued.
This is a great idea, terrifying and exciting all at once, the thought of being able to fly through the skies and bouncy from rooftop to rooftop is something we’ve all dreamt but the fear of one false step sending you into the stratosphere and to your death is always in the back of your mind. That said this book covers all that amazingly well in this first issue, although it appears that not much happens it keeps your attention for the whole book. With one issue the team gave us heartbreak, comedy, action, excitement and peril.
I’m looking forward to the next issue and the one after that. When a fresh idea like this comes along you cant help but get hooked.
Do you agree with my review, or think I couldn’t be more wrong?
