Echo #1, or how Terry Moore gets women right
Happy Easter! We had an Easter Brunch, then a nice run in the park. NJ is finally on the cusp of spring weather. Over the last few days, I've watched a few movies, some bball, played Wii, and enjoyed the few days off.
Comicwise, I almost missed Echo #1, luckily my LCBS still had some. Terry Moore crafts both the story and art. Echo is the story of two women (um, an echo of the two strong women from Strangers in Paradise), Annie a 'test pilot' for a beta suit and Julie, who was photographing some flowers when an accident caused part of the suit to rain down on her.
The cover is gorgeous, with Julie looking up and silver dots raining on her. I will say my first thought was the black and white art was a little sparse after such a cover (maybe I'm spoiled by glossy color superhero floppies). But then, on second look, the expressions, and details from shorts pockets to the flight suit to Julie's hair texture are almost tangible.
I hope some of you are or will pick up Echo, published by Abstract Studio Comics.
