Product Description

Product Description

Straight from the pages of the hit digital series DOUBLE BARREL!

You've never seen a Cold War like this! In CRATER XV, the follow-up to 2009's Eisner-nominated FAR ARDEN, Kevin Cannon weaves together an intoxicating tale of swashbuckling adventure, abandoned moon bases, bloodthirsty walruses, rogue astronauts, two-faced femme fatales, sailboat chases, Siberian pirates, international Arctic politics, and a gaggle of horny orphans. Mixed up in all of this are Army Shanks, our salty sea dog still reeling from a devastating loss, and Wendy Byrd, a plucky teenager who wants nothing more than a one-way ticket off the face of the Earth. For mystery, thrills, and Arctic chills, set a course for CRATER XV!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well drawn and well written. 7 April 2014
By Laura Booksnob - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Time for the space race. Army Shanks is still depressed and grieving when decides to pack it all up and leave Devon Island in the Canadian Arctic for Antartica. As Army is sailing away, the Siberians pirates arrive with a space rocket on their ship. Then a cute little runaway named Wendy appears to fulfill her dream of going to outer space and Shanks gets sucked into the melodrama. When he sees his childhood sweetheart from the orphanage and she doesn't remember him, he knows he must do whatever he can to save her.

Crater XV picks up right where Far Arden left off. Cannon has created a lovable main character in Army Shanks. He is a super hero, a savior of girls and women, a friend to the orphans, he risks life and limb to fight for what he believes in, he is like no other, and most importantly, he is fun to read about and follow on his misadventures. You're in for a wild ride to the moon and back or at least to Crater XV and back.

A lot of Crater XV is based on the real race to space by the Soviets and the Americans. Cannon's graphic novel called T-Minus: The Race to the Moon, inspired some of the plot of Crater XV. I love a graphic novel that is not only fun and entertaining to read but one that also teaches me a little history and this one does both. Canadians in the space race, who knew?

If you like graphic novels, you will love Crater XV. Crater XV is well drawn, well written and it is enjoyable to read. Cannon is an excellent cartoonist and well known for his detailed drawings. The artwork in Crater XV is similar to Far Arden, and done in black and white with intricate detail.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great art and a hilarious and touching story 10 July 2013
By W. McCoy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
In the sequel to Far Arden, Army Shanks finds himself a hunted, depressed fugitive battling Serbians who may have arrived in Newfoundland to either steal oil or launch a rocket to the moon. There are clueless bureaucrats, deceived astronauts, possibly a long lost love, and a girl named Wendy, who just wants to go to Europa, one of the moons of Jupiter.

If it all sounds madcap and zany, it is. At times it feels like a Marx Brothers comedy with a great deal of swashbuckling and saving the day thrown in for good measure. There's an International summit, and the Canadian Arctic Space Agency, or CASA (a completely made up agency) attempts to launch a rocket to the moon first to beat the Siberians.

The art by Kevin Cannon is fabulous, with lots of great black and white detail and the story is hilarious, and touching and sad. You don't need to read Far Arden first (I didn't), but you will probably want to after meeting the mighty Army Shanks. Highly recommended.

Great story by Kevin Cannon, as always. I like Far Arden more than this, but it is still an awesome story.
