Horizon by Brandon Thomas and Juan Gedeon is about a team that is determined to stop a world-conquering alien race. The twist? We are the aliens.
Issue #1 begins with a flaming object crashing into earth. A woman rises from the ashes. Her skin and blood blue, she struggles with what must be malfunctioning technology until camouflaging herself as a human woman. She is seen walking into a store and each time she walks by a person a little bit of their money is transferred to her account. Eventually, she meets up with an old friend, one Madame Coza. The end of the comic finds our main character issuing an order to stop the human invasion by making sure they can never leave the planet again.
The art has dark thick lines, bright colors, and angular edges. I look forward to seeing more of the character designs, in particular of the blue race that the main character belongs too.
I think this story has a lot of potential so I will be continuing the storyline. But to be honest, the first one was a little boring until you get to the twist… The buildup is slow, but it does provide a greater insight into our main character.
