    One thought on “Roche Limit, Vol. 2: Clandestiny”

    1. I Didn't Like This, Until I DidThis Volume 2 collects the five issues of "Roche Limit: Clandestiny". It follows after Volume 1, but apart from a few references to characters from Volume 1 and being set on the same planet 75 years after the events in Volume 1, this Voume 2 is basically a standalone. The story arc for these five issues is complete, although the open ending makes it clear that there is more story to be toldD GENERAL SPOILER. In a nutshell, we have an expedition to the abandoned pla [...]

    2. Не зря я раздавала авансы первому тому, ибо второй выстрелил ну пррросто космически. После разгрома колонии туда продолжают направлять исследовательские судна с загадочным грузом в трюме. История одной такой экспедиции, попавшей в переплет еще на подлете к проклятой план [...]

    3. 'Roche Limit Volume 2: Clandestiny' by Michael Moreci with art by Kyle Charles is a truly strange story. It falls into the genre of weird fiction and reminded me of the work of Jeff Vandermeer.75 years after a ship has been sent out to colonize a planet, another ship is sent out after them. No one has heard a thing from the original mission, but when the current mission crash lands on the planet, they find that not all is as it appears. There are hostile alien life forms and a strange forest tha [...]

    4. This was an enjoyable, slick, suspenseful series. Michael Moreci is a promising new writer, who's work is full of ambition. He channels Alan Moore in his themes, touching on the singularity of time. He also takes advantage of the comics medium, juggling nice scene transitions, infographics and adding textural prose pieces to each chapter/issue to give more depth to the world. I found each chapter to be dense and satisfyinga rarity in comics these days. Kyle Charles is a crazy young talent, who I [...]

    5. To be honest I was just bored. I only carried on reading because I'd forgotten to take it off my pull list. I really wish I'd remembered.

    6. Good concept, poor execution. Way too much lecturing and telling and talking. Poor usage of the comic book medium.

    7. Certainly an improvement over volume 1, but breaks no new ground. In fact it's probably most enjoyable when traveling in well-worn treads of Sci-Fi/Action/Horror genre.

    8. Subtitled “Clandestiny.” Nice. Around an orange motif there’s an alien planet where a female badass wants to kill a monster; I’m guessing you have to read volume 1 in order to know what monster she’s referring to. From there it seems to go into flashback, but it’s not clear. The reason I think that is because the next thing that happens is the ship being attacked by a missile and crashlanding. As the story goes on there’s a woman who’s lost her memory, but I can’t tell if she [...]

    9. Ok, so this is a sci-fi series about a military and science expedition out to this world where 75 years ago they had tried to start a colony and it somehow ended in flames. The small crew believes that they are the third expedition to the planet but they quickly find out that they are in fact the thirteenth. So what happened to all those other crews? Something on the planet is starting to mess with their minds. I really liked this a lot and found it interesting but there was never a point in the [...]

    10. I rate this as 2.5 stars overall, but I'll round up to three since volume 2 is better than volume 1.Roche Limit volume 1 was not intriguing or suspensful and was mostly dull, but volume 2 was better. The characters are all new since the story picks up 75 years after volume 1 and the plot thickens some as we learn more about the creatures inhabiting the planet Dispater. I like the artwork and characters better, but some of the storytelling still feels disjointed and the worldbuilding is still rat [...]

    11. Reading around I realised this book is quite different from the first in the trilogy, and based on many comments a whole lot better – in fact despite the disfavour the original arc was greeted with I almost want to go back and see what has changed, I enjoyed this one so much. This second book intelligently dumps the newcomer straight in with a really rich, mysterious world and the people stuck on it. The introduction of an android from the Prometheus school is the most derivative and poor elem [...]

    12. Space adventure comic collectionAlthough I 19ve read and reviewed Volume 1, I don 19t remember it well enough to see where the story here in Volume 2 fits in. An expedition to a far-off planet encounters conditions and circumstances which are unexpected. Some of the crew members survive as they confront their dreams and either succumb or see past them.Quite well-written, this is a difficult read but quite engaging. The artwork bolsters the story and is well-executed. It ends on a bit of a cliffh [...]

    14. Vol 2 of the Roche Limit saga takes a more conventional and compressed approach to the arguably more expansive and mysterious first volume. As such it offers a narrative tonal counter point to the first volume but in setting out to answer some of the mysteries Moreci's compelling universe becomes much less so. What was opaque and mysterious is now predictable and derivative. Yet another sci-fi story of people running from a spooky monster.

    15. By the end of the first volume I was quite enjoying Roche Limit, but this return to the wreckage of humanity's first space comedy just feels like the sort of middling SF story one skims in 2000AD, only slower. Standard genre motifs - be careful what you wish for, the killer android (or is he?), the bug hunt - are piled up without ever revealing anything new or making one invest in the fairly generic characters.

    16. Not quite as good as volume 1. This volume takes place years later. A military group lands on Roche Limit sent by the nefarious company that appears in volume 1. Yes, there are a lot of parallels with Aliens. The art on this volume is far inferior. It looks almost like doodles instead of fully inked arts. Objects are not fully defined and it ruins the book to a certain extent.Received an advance copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    17. This is the tale of the 13th expedition to Roche where nothing is as it seems. Aliens are using the expedition to create a ship that will bring a infectious part of them to earth to take over. Upon learning this, some members of the exhibition actively work to prevent this from happening. How successful they are is up in the air at the conclusion of this volume. Look for more intrigue in the next volume.

    18. The next volume of so-so sci-fi. Aspects of Solaris thrown in to make it a bit deeper. Not bad. Not great. The setting is cool enough that I check in on this series, but it is not a title I would bother with unless you are dedicated SF fan.

    19. I was really excited for this story, but the font was too difficult to read. I tried a few times, but ended up on the verge of headaches. Beautiful illustrations and interesting plot, but I think my edition was crappy.

    20. This was good, but I think the first one was better. It was sort of the "Aliens" to volume one's "Alien." Good read overall, but not AS good.

    21. a wonderful crazy mix up of cyperpunk, blade runner-esque SF and space opera. I dont know HOW this all works but it really does

    22. Good continuation of the series. Spectacular artwork and very clear dialogue. Can't wait until the next volume.
