HOTWIRE – VOLUME ONE: REQUIEM FOR THE DEAD
Written by Steve Pugh
What really sticks with you, though, is the fact that Hotwire isn’t your standard protagonist. In a character-focused tale, your protagonist is almost always likeable. Yes, they have their faults, but they overcome them. Hotwire doesn’t. Instead, she revels in them. If you are expecting her to come out of this story a changed person, you are foolish. People in real life don’t change because of one crazy adventure and neither does Hotwire.
As with all art done in this style, there are some very noticeable pitfalls. Most notably, the art can be incredibly stiff, which doesn’t always bode well for action stories. You also run into consistency issues that crop up from a much more involved process. These come with the territory and intrepid readers are going to notice them.
