Comic Review: Invisible Kingdom #2

Invisible Kingdom #2

Dark Horse Comics

Writer: G. Willow Wilson

Artist: Christian Ward

The real kicker of it all: they asked for a maintenance request from Lux, their employer, months ago. As they shuttle into a Lux space station, the Sundog crew discusses what they’ll tell the Lux functionary about a cargo anomaly. An anomaly that points to a sinister and illegal partnership–a partnership some might even kill to keep secret.
