Le numéro 3 est sorti le 17 novembre, on arrive donc au milieu de la série qui sera en 6 numéros.

Le premier numéro est très bon et pose les bases de l’intrigue, à savoir la course à l’espace entre les Etats-Unis et l’URSS avec l’envoi d’animaux en orbite (Laïka du coté URSS et Abel et Baker pour les Etats-Unis). Le tout est accompagné d’un fond conspirationniste intéressant.

Par contre les deux épisodes suivant s’attardent sur les animaux en question. Intéressant, mais à ce niveau, l’intrigue n’avance plus et je me demande bien vers quoi on va évoluer avec les 3 derniers épisodes. A voir ce que ça va donner, j’ai peur du pétard mouillé, j’espère que je serai surpris.

En tout cas Sorrentino est toujours aussi bon, notamment sur la mise en page, et Dave Stewart fait un super boulot sur les couleurs.
