Issue #2 goes on sale this Wed (March 18th). Courtesy of Gary Rodrigue, here is what Philip Eaves thought of it.
“Truth be told, there isn’t much I can say about Hotwire #2 that I didn’t say about Hotwire #1. Steve Pugh continues to be amazing. When he isn’t using his art to highlight the odd futuristic technology or architecture, he’s giving a quick yet beautiful glance at the heroine Hotwire. If anything, issue #2 seems to be focusing on knocking over all of the rules that the first set up like dominoes. This heightens the threat level of what Hotwire is facing and draws you in for the incredible “oh crap” moments. There’s a lot going on in this book, and you will need to read it again. Chances are, though, that you will want to read it again. Hotwire is one of those rare books that doesn’t seem rushed. There are layers of narrative going on here, and every character has something genuine to say. Pugh’s art alone deserves a second look-through, as each blue light has been lavishly designed. There’s not much more I can say, folks. Read Hotwire. If you haven’t picked up issue #1, please go and do so. This is a book that really uses the advantages of the medium and shows epic-scale monsters that take your breath away. Speaking of breath, I’ll be holding mine till the next ish comes out.”
