“OUVERTURE”Retired assassin Alan Fisher and his ballerina companion must escape a ruthless sniper who stalks them through the streets of Milan. To survive and protect the love of his life, Alan will unravel the tapestry of the past he’s kept hidden and discover the killer’s impossible identity. From the writer of WHO IS JAKE ELLIS? and the artist of VIKING comes a spy thriller with a 21st Century twist.
Edmondson and artist Nic Klein work to create a world of strange colors and lines in Dancer, but what appears at first to be a predictable plot and the aforementioned protagonists flee from their pursuer. I can’t say the ending made me want to buy the next issue, but it definitely raised my eyebrows. If you are a fan of Edmondson’s previous work, you may want to check this one out.
