NYC Mech: Beta Love #1
Ivan Brandon, Miles Gunter, Andy MacDonald
*** 1/2 (out of five)
Welcome back, NYC Mech.
After creating a buzz with their work on the two-issue miniseries debut last year, Ivan Brandon, Miles Gunter and Andy MacDonald are back with the follow up: Beta Love, a “robotic street crime romance.”
Set in a modern-day New York City where all living things are replaced by robots, Beta Love opens with Quentin, a bus driver trying to keep out of trouble, walking — or rather driving — right into it, thanks to a spiky-haired sister who’s hijacked his ride.
Visually impressive and thoroughly engrossing, Beta Love is an unusual blend of genres that works surprisingly well together and promises great things to come.
