“METAL PEDAL”, part two

The world’s deadliest hunters become the hunted as the smugglers take matters into their own hands, and Blacktop Bill sees the light as these two treacherous journeys continue.

The book opens with someone fleeing the shadows and seeking refuge…

…only for it to be a ruse by serial killer Blacktop Bill!

Elsewhere, Val Riggs and his Sundog convoy hunt down Blacktop Bill, but…

…he is hunted by three other soldiers, who were created like him, after killing the first three “Williams” sent after him in the last issue (full spoilers here).

Blacktop Bill puts on a helmet…

…which allows him to learn the true motivations behind the shadow monster king Nox.

Now they join Blacktop Bill’s hunters because he knows too much!

A battle ensues punctuated by a powerful sunburst reproducing the light, but it is not William who enters the fray…

…it’s Val and the Sundog Convoy!

It turns out that Blacktop Bill is so upset by what he saw in Nox’s mind, a revelation that he’s the universe’s black hole ready to suck everything and everyone in, that…

…Blacktop Bill seems to believe they have no choice.

The enemies must unite and the killer Blacktop Bill is ready to join forces with Val and she reluctantly agrees as the rest of the Sundog convoy is stunned!

The pulse:

Another compelling, action-packed and intriguing number that’s packed with zigs and zags. It’s a story you can’t predict or anticipate. Amazing art to boot. I wish the next issue was here now. 8.5 out of 10.
