The Clan and their visitor make it to Three Palms to resupply and enjoy the town. Tommy runs into trouble after beating the Mayor at poker and taking home his girl.

I’ll just say I’m glad Malcolm dropped me a comment. I’m even more glad I listened, despite the reservations I had after reading the first issue. It took me long enough to pick this is up.

For some reason, the problems I had in the past with the art didn’t trouble me. I really liked that spread of Three Palms with the casino. The setting is really grabbing my interest, especially with all the clans.

I’m not sure I care for the Black Dog Clan’s leader. Mostly from this marriage and there are some valid arguments against it. How could he do it to his former wife with such a lame excuse as increasing their numbers? Especially when there are other males in the group. That really gets under my skin.

I’m really starting to like Tommy, though, and how he can’t keep his mouth shut and is certainly a trouble magnet. I can’t wait to see what other humorous trouble he gets into. He’s my man, though I’d like to see more of Chunga. That chick is a tank.

I have no idea what’s in store for the clan, other than the obvious. I really hope those guys manage to settle. For the short-term, I’m anxious to see what other conflicts develop out of this wedding and what quest the Eagle Clan guy is on. I can’t wait to get my hands on the third issue. This is getting added to my pull list.

The petroleum age passed and most people died. 175 years into the future, ma exists only in small tribes roaming the wastelands. The Black Dog Clan is one such tribe and they are ambushed by Snake Clan.

I have mixed feelings about this book. The art is pretty most of the time, but some parts of it seem awkward, though I can’t really put my finger on it.

The writing isn’t too bad either, but so much stuff happens after the ambush, I’m left a little confused especially regarding the relationships and tribal culture. A lot of characters get introduced and it’s a bit chaotic. There’s also a moe character, so I’m worried how this will go. I really hate everything moe.

I really want to like this. The setting interests me having a post-apocalyptic flair, but this is starting to look like some videogame based comic. A ton of characters are introduced, your thrown into the thick of it, and you can’t help but feel like you’ve missed something fans will scoff at you for.

I just don’t know.
