'Blue Hour' by Dino Caruso with art by Chad Cicconi is a SF whodunnit on a colony of humans. It's ok at best.

A group of planetary colonists have left Earth. They find a new home, but they must share it with the indigenous species. There is tension. There is also all the tropes that humans bring, like crime, prostitution and black market dealings. Things are uneasy with the resident population and they want to oust the humans. When a murder of a popular figure takes place, things threaten to brea

Follows the plot of every other sci-fi western comic made in the last 10 years. Humans go colonize another planet, there's trouble with the local aliens and the good guys need to head it off before a war starts.

Combined with cartoony potato shaped people and children's storybook

*I received this book as an eARC from Action Lab Entertainment via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

This looked like it was going to be a fun sci-fi colonization comic, but it was not. This book barely kept my interest. The artwork was unimpressive. The storytelling also wasn't very modern. That was my biggest grievance with this book. It didn't seem like it was written in 2017. It was very old school in its characterizations. So many women are presented wearing almost nothing. There's

Two at best for a very heavy-handed (in inking and in theme) look at the violence allegedly inherent in mankind, even if they've reached for the stars. Could have been so much better.
