When a dancer is found dead and her daughter missing, the cops write it off as just another overdosed tweaker and a runaway kid. But Vega knows better, and now she has to decide if she’s willing to risk her freedom in order to help those who have nowhere else to turn. And Cully Hamner (Red, Batman and The Signal) returns to THE RIDE for an explosive story about stuffed bunnies and hand grenades.
The Ride is dark… and different… and depressing. I’m not sure that comic would be the term used as much as a graphic novel excerpt. If it is your cup of tea to drink from the fringes of comics, then have at it. It’s a story that is shaping up as a dark NBC CSI episode. And it is adorned with an extra story that tilts your tea over!
It is an issue of what your preferences are in comics. I climbed into the ride in the first issue and I’ll continue to ride. But I’m the frustrated child in the back with no video games, movies or magazines. I’m simply along for the ride!
