The Misfits have traveled to the city outside the wall of the alternative world Techrat has taken them to. Pizzazz is obsessed with finding out what has happened to this world’s Misfits. As the band travels through the city, they see how divided the citizens are outside the wall as opposed to the citizens who dwell within. As the band travels through the city, they happen upon this reality’s Kimber and Stormer. The band learns the fate of both Jem and The Holograms and The Misfits; Pizzazz is ready for war. But, they are called back by Jerrica and The Holograms are ready to take action.
Kelly Thompson has created a unique story here with alternate universes within this comic. What I appreciate is that there are dedicated comics for The Holograms and for The Misfits. Each story line has separate action going on but you get that it is all happening at the same time. Each one of these comics I am reading, Thompson is killing it. Every story is different and they fit the characters. She is able to take a simple plot and weave a very compelling story with a different voice between the two groups. She is a wonderful storyteller and this is one of the better comics I have read in awhile.
Jenn St-Onge is back as the artist, with Brittany Peer as the colorist. They do a good job as a duo, I always enjoy St-Onge’s take on the characters but Peer’s coloring is really good. I like the way she handles the shadowing while the band travels through the city. The color is dramatic in this comic, it is almost like a foreshadowing of things to come, solidifying what is going on outside the city, the desperation. St-Onge and Peer work well in this storyline.
I am holding back as I don’t want to give anything away if I can help it, but I love this Infinite story. I recommend getting this, and if you can wait for the trade it is definitely worth it.
This comic is a solid 4 stars, read it!
