Decisions that Affect A Galaxy in She: At the Tower of All That Is Known
She: At the Tower of All That Is Known follows the deadliest bounty hunter in the galaxy. No, that is not an exaggeration on her part. She has earned that title, and she will likely continue to hold it until the day she dies. Everybody has secrets.
Especially those with dark lives and darker pasts. She is no exception to that rule, and thus it’s her secrets that are on the line now. Losing her life would be nothing compared to having her secrets get out.
Written by Ryan K. Lindsay and illustrated by Chris Panda Mercier, She: At the Tower of All That Is Known is a stunning new piece of work that comic readers will undoubtedly enjoy. It is as full of risks as it is violence, which is saying something.
If you’re in the mood for a violent space odyssey, then you really need to check out She: At the Tower of All That Is Known. Though that description really doesn’t do this issue justice, as it is infinitely more complex than that.
One of the delights from this has to be how the story unfolds. There isn’t a problem with the show and tell – everything seems to come out naturally. There’s no info-dumping, and there’s no hand-holding.
Yet it all makes sense in the end, trusting the readers to make the right conclusions. I adored that, and many other decisions that were made along the way. Such as the characters and the way they interacted with one another. Wait, that makes it sound like I’m talking about the fighting, but it’s not just that.
At the end of the day, I was left hoping for more She: At the Tower of All That Is Known, which is always a win as far as I’m concerned.
The stylistic decisions are fantastic in She: At the Tower of All That Is Known. The whole issue is bold and bright, especially in terms of the backgrounds. All of which makes the leading lady stand out all the more.
Speaking of, the character design for She is extremely eye-catching. That much should be clear, just from looking at the cover (oh, that cover! It’s so lovely). She goes through some visual transitions over the course of this issue, but that actually just makes her more visually compelling.
As I already hinted at, I adored the colors used here. For skin tones, backgrounds, and other elements that took over a panel. It really gave it a space odyssey feel, but with a few twists along the way.
Ultimately, She: At the Tower of All That Is Known is an experience worth diving into. It’s bold, flashy, and a ton of fun. It’s also perfect for sci-fi fans, especially those that enjoy something that is a little bit out there…and not afraid to get just a wee bit violent. In short, it’s a fast-paced and clever read, and I hope that her story is far from over
