The Accelerators Volume 2: Momentum Review
A jumpin’ good time!
A group of accidental time travelers find themselves stranded in the future with a time machine that can only go forward. Their only hope is to keep moving, jumping further and further in search of a future that can show them a way back home. As the world crumbles around them in fast-forward, our heroes fight to survive a series of dangerous and surreal futures, each one wilder than the next. This second volume of the acclaimed ongoing story combines Issues 1-4 of THE ACCELERATORS: MOMENTUM.
This volume picks up where the previous one left off. After Spatz and the rest of the group do another time jump, they find themselves in what appears to be the same mall from the first volume. Then we get a few moments to catch their breath before being forced to do another jump to avoid being attacked by monster-like creatures.
But luckily for them, they were able to find a clue to where they might have to end up going. I don’t want to spoil anything, so I won’t go into too much of what happens after each of the time jumps that occur during this volume. But I can assure you it’s very cool and highly entertaining.
The progression of the story has been fun to watch unfold; especially seeing where all the craziness goes. We also get to see the characters in a bit of a different light in this volume. And then with the cliffhanger at the end, you’ll definitely be coming back for more.
The art for The Accelerators has consistently been good throughout these first two volumes. And with each book getting more and more crazy with each jump, I can only Imagine what Gavin Smith will get to draw in the next few volumes.
As much as I’ve been enjoying these first two volumes of The Accelerators, I’m definitely going to have to check out the other titles that are being published by Blue Juice comics. And I recommend you do the same!
I’m giving the second volume of The Accelerators…
