The Adventures of Basil and Moebius Volume 2 The Shadow Gambit by Ryan Schifrin

Basil and Moebius are a real kickass team and the Collector is sending them on a new quest.  He forgets to mention that the woman they are competing with is another ancient one (monster alien being).  Their lives could be very, very short...

Magnetic Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this graphic novel for review (thank you).  It will be published July 28th, so you'll be able to grab a copy then.

I read and enjoyed the first installment in this series so I was looking forward to more action scenes and magnificent saves from this duo.  I was not disappointed.

They begin by saving a beautiful woman from a man who has kidnapped her.  She's so grateful she wants to reward them with a kiss and a hug, but they just jump out of the boat and send her on her way.  Minus her necklace, of course.  That was what they were really saving...

When they get settled on the beach with drinks in hand and sexy young girls hanging about, they begin to relax.  It's no go, the collector wants them back again to send them on another mission.  This one is really down and dirty and they have multiple enemies looking for them.  It's a good thing they have some good mercenary friends to help them.

This was an exciting story, the graphics are excellent, and it seems this deadly duo can accomplish most anything.  The only worry I have is just what the Collector has in mind...
