Fangirls, I was instantly drawn to this comic because of the cover art. It’s gorgeous, and Elsa Charretier keeps up the beauty throughout the comic. I haven’t read Issue 2 yet, but I read #1 and instantly fell in love.
Teddy is a time-traveler who works to rectify anomalies in the time stream. She does it every day, every week, every year. And it seems that after 4 years of it, she’s bored. She has realized the Infinite Loop; people (men specifically), will always be idiots, and take too long to be fair. Her pal and copilot, Ulysses, is starting to realize the Loop, but while Teddy believes love is just another part of the Loop, it’s clear Ulysses is pretty deeply in love with her.
When I first started reading this, I became worried that the story would follow Teddy as she fell in love with Ulysses because he cares so much for her, but as I read, I realized I was way off. I’m quite sure Teddy is gay or bi-sexual. She casually mentions belonging at a gay pride event, instead of racing through time with Ulysses. At the end of their race, Ulysses tries to kiss Teddy, but she wants nothing to do with that.
Later in the comic, Teddy is going to check out a pretty large anomaly, and is surprised when instead of an inanimate object, she finds a woman. The comic ends with the question “Do your choices define you? Suppress anomaly?”
I think the love interest just entered.
This book looks like it will be phenomenal. The art and almost infographic-style that flows throughout is so dang beautiful, and I can’t wait to read more. Issue 2 is out already, so you should probably go pick up those, and get really pumped; I know I’m ready for Issue 2.
