In this Issue:
Amber wakes up in Decom. After knocking out the scrapper who was going to harvest her for parts, she needs to figure out a way to get out of there. She wakes up another decommissioned robot and asks for help. A daring escape lands the two robots on the lam and she is more determined to find Elizabeth Traynor, the doctor who created AI whom Amber believes can cure Rust.
Meanwhile, the cops we met in the first issue are looking for whoever is putting high-tech augmentations out on the street. Their investigation is interrupted by call that two decommissioned robots have escaped. The book ends with the introduction of some high tech bounty hunters.
I love this series. I’m wholly invested in the world and the characters already. The shades of noir cop action on the B-story is a welcome addition to Amber’s story. The influence of Blade Runner is not lost to me, but I get more nostalgia for the Karl Urban show Almost Human, that was, unfortunately cancelled well before its prime in these pages. The art is still mind-blowingly gorgeous, and that alone is worth it to me. I could get lost in these pages for hours. I highly recommend grabbing this book as soon you as you can.
