Gearhead (Arcana – Hopeless / Mellon / Herrera / Strakhov)
On a mission to find her brother and in search of the destiny she never knew she had, Shelby’s life is about to get interesting. Join her on a 4-issue road trip that leads from the drag strip all the way to the White House. Like her father before her, she is GearHead.
The Gearhead trade finally hits this week. I say finally, not because it was late… ’cause it’s not. I say finally, because fanboys have been waiting patiently for a collected version of this runaway indie hit from ’07.
This out-of-the-box, in-your-face story piqued reader’s interest with an alternate take to the mainstream anti-hero and the post-modern superhero setting. While I enjoyed the story, what really stood out for me was the amazing pencils from K.W. Mellon and the equally talented color work from Alexey Stekhov.
At $14.95, this collected trade will be one of your best buys of the Spring!
