Comments: A couple of aliens are on Earth. They journey to Nevada, New Vegas. The aliens do have an agenda. New Mexico is next on their journey.
Upstate NY, Watkins Glen here two magic users are playing around to relax in a serious situation. The girl with the gun in the shadows is pretty hot. The overall art looks good but other than the girl nothing sticks out, its just there.
We keep skipping back and forth to different locations.
Argent Starr is a magician and more. His father was an alien and he took over his father's mission, protect the Cardinal Stone. What is the Cardinal Stone?
Well there is no storyline here. Aliens are on Earth but so what. Why are they here, what are they up to? Why should wee care?

Comments: The recap was needed to explain what was going on before. It is well written and does catch you up nicely.
Argent Starr and his sexy cute bodyguard have a nice little play about with words. Its fun to read.
Argent Starr and his bodyguard have some cool futuristic skateboards. The hi-tech is something to see as it is illustrated in a wonderful style and the use of colors just accentuates the hi-tech. The robots add a nice touch to the scenery.
The Cardinal Stone is what Argent Starr wants and the alien Code do as well. It is a massively destructive object though and a Mossad-trained, highly decorated, US counter-intelligence super-sky has it. He is very nicely illustrated as he drives along.
This story is about aliens on Earth. It is also about the danger this Cardinal Stone can put the Earth in.
In the Sci Files about the hi-tech gadgets we finally learn the bodyguard's name, Mrs. Thorne. Her suit is a arsenal.

Comments: Aliens are involved here. We see one with blue tentacles grabbing a girl. Well aliens do need to have fun to.
At Cyg City we are treated to a wonderfully futuristically drawn outer space scene. The view from the penthouse spectacular.
The variety of aliens shown does indicate a good imagination. There are many different species.
Mrs. Thorne and Argent Starr are nor used very much this issue. Mrs. Thorne though does look cute with her knives.
The flying car is stylish. The backgrounds are all wonderfully done and set the mood for the comic.
The star of the comic really did need to be in it more. He comes across as a good character only we need to see him to know that more.
The people are illustrated so they fit in with the dark setting in this futuristic adventure.

Comments: Argent is breaking into a facility. The atmosphere is a dark setting. Argent blends into it using his Shadowfog. He also has Memoryfog and Datafog which combined make him invisible to people and machines.
The story jumps around way to much.
Mrs. Thorne looks gorgeous. She comes across as a professional.
Specter the cat is illustrated to perfection.
Argent enters a high stakes card game. The prizes are unique ones.
The story needs more focus. You are left wondering what exactly is going on. It needs more excitement in it.
Argent Starr does come across as a secret agent type. He is calm cool and relaxed. He appears always ready for action.

Comments: The write up before the comic starts is a much needed to fill the reader in on what is going on. This will help you out a lot.
Argent is in a high stakes poker game playing against a most unusual group. They are not playing for money but prizes worth so much more. The finish to this game is not done to bring out the excitement of winning. It just ends.
There is excitement is a high speed car chase. Lots is happening during it. There are some nice excited facial expressions.
The chase in the sky is exciting as well. Plus the use of alien tech adds to it.
The scenery and tech illustrated here will remind you of Blade Runner. Here though it is Argent after a item that is the driving force of the story.
