One of my favourite series from Class Comics is Star Crossed.
This issue picks up the story as Locus and his new ally, Beedal, try to escape Sekta Prime. Broke and desperate to buy a way off-world, Locus and Beedal enter a gambling tournament and Locus ends up being offered up as the buy-in. Beedal is convinced that he can win, but should he lose, Locus will be forfeited to servitude.
Meanwhile, Camili-Cat is on the planet Suktamimus - heart-broken and emotionally unravelling. Believing that Locus is dead, Camili-Cat is trying to drown his sorrows in booze, drugs, and a lot of sex.
On one level, Love Lost #2 is a terrific erotic comic. Fillion has a great eye for drawing sexed-up males and pounding encounters.
Beyond that, Love Lost #2 is also great erotic sci-fi. If you're looking to fuel your Guardians of the Galaxy fap fantasies, then the Star Crossed universe delivers in every respect.
But, there's more to Love Lost #2 than just its merits as one-handed fap fantasy fuel for sci-fi geeks. Fillion has spent seven years trying to finish this story and get it right - frequently distracted by other projects. While that extended development period may have been frustrating for fans of the characters, the result is a very solid addition to the Star Crossed universe, leaving us with plenty of appetite for more.
Regardless of how other-wordly these characters may seem on the surface, Fillion always gives them plenty of humanity. These are guys that we connect with, that we engage with - guys that we'd happily be stuck in space with for a few light-years.
This is my kind of science fiction.
