Echo: Moon Lake, by Terry Moore
(pb; 2008: graphic novel)
From the back cover:
"Julie Martin is taking photographs in the California desert when an explosion in the clouds showers her with liquid metal pellets that stick to her skin and begin to reform a powerful atomic armor. Now somebody wants Julie dead, and the only one who can save her is a woman they've already killed."
Terry Moore, creator of the excellent comic/graphic novel series Strangers in Paradise has once again created a mainstream yet offbeat series that has characters worth rooting for, a strong plot and plenty of action.
Excellent, worthwhile read.
Moon Lake is the first volume in the Echo series, anthologizing its first five issues.
Followed by Echo: Atomic Dreams (which anthologizes issues six through ten).
