I read some more comics over the weekend. A while back I bought the first volume of Copperhead and Saturday turned out to be the day to read it. I’d heard mixed things about the comic itself, but the fact that my comic shop was always sold out of volume one seemed a good sign to me.
I’m still not sure what I think of Copperhead. It’s the story of a woman and her son who move to a far outlying, dry and dusty planet, where she will be the Sheriff in a small town. The world is populated by many different types of species as well as artificial humans, leftover from a war they were created to fight. The tension in this first volume is just from her very existence, her getting the job of Sheriff over the already on the job Deputy.
I was intrigued by one character, sadly not the main character, so I can’t decide if I’m going to keep going or not. The main character has a past, which is hinted at, but not fully revealed quite yet. I’m also still not too sure what the world and time period is all about, one volume hasn’t been enough to figure that all out. I think I’ll read one more volume, when it’s released, to get more of a sense of the story. And I’m excited because my library is carrying it, so I’ll check it out and see what I think.
