    Mary Raven travels to backwater Ignition City to retrieve her late father s possessions What she finds is a corrupt town that has plenty of secrets, which include who killed her father and why.Taking the basic plot points at face value, they could be window dressing for a variety of settings western, noir, mystery Here, Warren Ellis takes the steampunk route and creates a compelling story with an assortment of quirky characters, some ugly aliens and a sprinkling of humor Ignition City is the last space port on planet Earth Mary and her father were both space pilots Mary s tough and resourceful and knows her way around a laser gun This is a great volume with one caveat there s loads of dialogue Conversations go on for pages It s very well written, but seems to be at home in less visual medium a short story or a book Still, highly recommended.

    A sort of science fictiony, wild westish thing that gets by with the absolute minimum in explanations There s really quite an interesting world here, one that I feel like Ellis put a lot of thought into But he just sort of throws the reader in and we get by on what we pick up as we go It would be annoying, if the world didn t feel so cohesive and well thought out Otherwise, it s basically a dime a dozen action movie Fun, but nothing particularly novel or that will make it stand out from the crowd With one minor exception, early in the book a few panels where the main character, an adult woman with many adventures behind her and some serious badassery ahead of her, finds out that her father has died and, alone, cries for her daddy It s the one moment in this book where I felt any emotional connection to the characters, and it s just long enough to be convincing without being long enough to become uncomfortable.

    Good stuff, was searching for a Vol 2 and realized there isn t a continuation to the plot.

    I loves me some steampunkalicious space spaghetti western Yessir I learned how to spell spaghetti in the 7th grade when it lost me a damn spell off I always get a little conflicted when I use it correctly in a sentence Mary Raven is tough, take no prisoners, and trying to find out who killed her daddy There s only one problem Warren Ellis apparently gets bored I love W.E., love his stories, his big ideas although I wish he d spend a little energy on story, and a little less on creative swearing, the terrific artists he pairs with but why oh why does he drop fantastic stories just when they hit their stride Like Doktor Sleepless, which I adored, he just drops the storyline At least this one is finished I ll keep reading Ellis stories, I m a sucker like that, even if I have to cross my fingers everytime, that I ll get a complete story.

    Vintage Warren Ellis strong female protagonists, washed up astronauts, alien invasions, laser guns, and poop jokes, all wrapped up in superb visuals from Gianluca Pagliarani and tied together by a plot that, if not brilliantly twisty, is at least not completely by the numbers.Fantastic story, but make sure to take the time to admire the inventiveness of the art design and colors as well.

    The atmosphere and character behavior in Ignition City is similar to what you would see in the Wild West poverty, guns, death and little concern for life The action is during an alternate 50 s timeline where space travel is common, so maybe the steampunk genre is fitting The main character loved her father who died in Ignition City and she wants to find out who is responsible She discovers than she bargained for and starts a new phase in her life.The beginning just throws you into the story, which takes a bit of getting used to Everything is different from our history, including alien creatures, futuristic tech and the human society as a whole Poverty and ruin are commonplace, so progress was replaced with survival a while ago The world is headed toward self destruction, but a few individuals refuse to take it sitting down.Mary Raven is passionate about going into space, but the countries of the world are banning space travel Her father instilled this desire in her, so her destination is Ignition City where her father was killed view spoiler She meets several people who knew her father She tries to buy a gun from the guy who turns out killed her father, Lightning Bowman, but is refused Bowman orders two guys working for him to kill her Their ambush takes her by surprise and she is rescued by Dr Vukovic, one of her father s friends She realises that the real enemy is the marshal who isn t allowing anyone to go north where an alien enemy called Kharg is being kept in a prison camp He was responsible for atrocities in the past and everyone thought him dead Mary kills the marshal and the people in the city agree she should take his place hide spoiler

    If you like dieselpunk style Wild West retro pulp adventure stories, then you ll probably dig this The background art is textured, nuanced, dirty, and real, which helps ground you in the world Ellis has created The character art is a bit spotty at times, but you don t notice it too much There s an entire world and alternate history hiding between the panels that you wish was brought to surface , but keeping it hidden is an interesting approach If you ever wondered what happened to all those sci fi pulp heroes of the 30s and 40s after they came back from space, this is it, and it s depressing as hell Also, quite a bit of violence and gore, so if you re not into that, it ll be a shock I will say the ray gun blasting action sequences are epic.

    The rating might be a little high for this book, but Warren Ellis does his best work when he goes to his secret pleasure space oriented science fiction see Ocean, Orbiter, Switchblade Honey and Ministry of Space Yes, he falls into some of his bad speech habits here, but the concept works Take all of the old space heroes thinly disguised versions of Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, Dale Arden, Dr Zarkov, Commando Cody, etc mix in one real life cosmonaut, and banish them to Earth s only operating spaceport Toss in a murder and things get fun As with the other works mentioned above I would read set in this universe.

    In this dieselpunk alternative history comic book, washed up, space heroes live in Ignition City, a rough and rowdy settlement cut off from civilization on Earth s last spaceport Ignition City has a strong woman for the main character, Mary Raven, a space pilot and daughter of the famous spaceman, who stopped a Martian missile plot She heads to the spaceport to discover how her father died and who killed him It has colorful language and a Wild West tone There are aliens, ray guns, and the marshal flies around in a rocketeer type outfit It s a fun, action packed read.
