Dr. Ross Rex breaks out of the Taurus County Jail and our favorite Hero Cat must uncover his master plan. Return with us to Stone City as Midnight, Cassiopeia, Belle, Eastly and his people prepare for the upcoming war.
If you told me years ago I’d be regularly enjoying books that feature a team of heroic cats I’d probably have laughed. Granted, there are far more bizarre things that could and have been pitched. Luckily the offshoot Hero Cats: Midnight Over Stellar City and issue two of its second volume is anything but.
One of the escaped villains, Dr Rex, shows up at the Quest home and creepily gets the nanny involved in his evil plot. Midnight, Cassiopeia and eventually Belle track him to his lair, learning of the plan to use the Echo Chamber for nefarious reasons. Midnight and Belle go to warn Eastly and his people, while Cassie follows Rex solo.
The art continues to be exactly what you’d expect from the Midnight series, so yes, a whole lotta black. It was neat to see Eastly come back into the mix again and in a new style on top of it. The minions of Dr Rex were an amusing sight, just imagine if there was an entire army of them.
Another Hero Cat has joined the mix and with what the Doctor has planned, it’s a good thing too. Whether I’d have ever expected to have books like this around, I’m glad they are. There’s just one book left after this, at least for this volume, so catch up and prepare for the big ending.
