REVIEW: 'Home Sick Pilots' #2 by Dan Watters, Caspar Wijngaard, and Aditya Bidikar

The Old James House has lost its ghosts. With her new powers, it's up to Ami to bring them back...whether they want to come home or not. Even when they're really big ghosts wrapped in metal, with lots of sharp edges and things. HOME SICK PILOTS #2 Writer: Dan Watters Artist: Caspar Wijngaard Letterer: Aditya Bidikar  Designer: Tom Muller Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: January 13, 2021 Cover Price: $3.99 Score:  ★★★☆☆ (3/5) A powered-up ghostified Ami has been compelled to find the ghosts of The Old James House in the form of an enchanted horseshoe. Its current bearer isn't going to give it up so easily. Meanwhile, Ami's friends Buzz and Rip are left looking for answers about her whereabouts back at the house. The second issue of Home Sick Pilots from Dan Watters and Caspar Wijngaard takes a surprising turn as it defies the expectations of a haunted house story established in its debut.

ADVANCE PREVIEW: 'The Wilds' #1 by Vita Ayala, Emily Pearson, and Marissa Louise

From next-big-thing writer Vita Ayala (BITCH PLANET: TRIPLE FEATURE, WONDER WOMAN ANNUAL), your next favorite artist Emily Pearson, rising star colorist Marissa Louise (SPELL ON WHEELS), and indie sensation cover artist Natasha Alterici (HEATHEN) comes an eerie, elegant new take on the apocalypse.


Synopsis:

After a cataclysmic plague sweeps across America, survivors come together to form citystate-like communities for safety.

Daisy Walker is a Runner for The Compound, a mix of post-apocalyptic postal service and black market salvaging operation. It is a Runner's job to ferry items and people between settlements, and on occasion scavenge through the ruins of the old world. Daisy is the best there is at what she does.

Out beyond the settlement walls are innumerable dangers: feral animals, crumbling structures, and Abominations - those that were touched by the plague and became something other. After a decade of surviving, Daisy isn't phased by any of it - until her lover, another Runner named Heather goes missing on a job. Desperate to find her, Daisy begins to see that there may be little difference between the world inside the walls and the horrors beyond.

From writer Vita Ayala (Bitch Planet: Triple Feature, Wonder Woman Annual) and Emily Pearson (Cult Classic) with colors by Marissa Louise (Spell On Wheels) and covers by Natasha Alterici (Heathen), comes this bold tale of surviving in bleak times.


"With a beautiful and horrific twist on the classic zombie at the heart, Ayala and Pearson craft a bold new dystopia that can't be missed."
- JAMES TYNION IV (Detective Comics, The Woods)


"THE WILDS is the kind of book that stays with you long after you read it. The characters, the world, the images, all leave you desperate to read more. It's haunting in the best possible way."
- MATTHEW ROSENBERG (4 Kids Walk Into A Bank, Phoenix Resurrection)


"Mad Max meets Day Of The Dead, with the beautiful impressionistic style of Tarsem Singh... this is THE WILDS. A pitch-perfect callback to the metaphorical heart of apocalypse fiction that began with Night Of The Living Dead, with the action you need waiting beneath the cover."
- STEVE ORLANDO (Supergirl, Justice League of America)
