Helena Crash #1

From writer Fabian Rangel Jr (Space Riders) and artist Warwick Johnson-Cadwell (Tank Girl) comes a new pulse pounding, caffeine fueled, sword swinging, machine-gun firing, car crashing sci-fi adventure comic! In a future where coffee is illegal, Helena is a courier, delivering black market goods to anyone who can afford her services. When Rojo, a ruthless crime boss, asks her to assassinate his rival, the alien mobster known as White Demon, Helena finds herself in the middle of a gang war! To survive, Helena must use all of her skills, and seek help from her friends to stay ahead of her enemies!

 Helena Crash is the bomb!

I’ve seen this art style before, but never in a comic; it gives a freshness and an endearing quality to the proceedings that I haven’t seen in a while. Combine that with the quirky story and hilarious little details (like the names of the illicit coffees!) and you have a comic that put a smile on my face from start to finish. Helena herself, of course, can kick ass with all kinds of style.

I want to see more Helena Crash. Keep em coming!

Final Verdict: 4 out of 5.
