While attending a concert, Rell is given information on where to find a piece of the god. It’s a race off planet to find the first piece before the other companies, but all is not what it seems as an unexpected attack comes from a mysterious origin.
With the limitless expanse of universe, who’s to say there couldn’t one day be a godlike creature found out there? Well, ok maybe most people would say that it isn’t something in the realm of reality. Luckily, the second issue of HaloGen is just a comic and reality is not really a concern.
After a shady character offers up some information on the location of a part of this god we hear about, Rell and crew gear up to go after it. Upon arriving at the place this piece is supposed to be, they come across what appears to be a young girl. With all readings indicating that she is the piece they’re looking for, they take her along. As you’d expect, they’re not the only ones seeking it out and are met with some opposition.
This style that is being used as I said in book one is different from most you’d be used to. I do actually kinda dig it though, especially given the kind of story that HaloGen is. It’s a little rougher than you’d expect from sci-fi, but so far I feel it’s working well.
I’m still a little shaky on the book as a whole, but only two issues in I can’t really fault it that much. This chapter does help in understanding some of the aspects and will hopefully continue to expand on that. By the end I was a bit more interested, so it’s worth seeing what happens next.
