perfectly cast

I came across the first issue of CAST (Written by Jamie Bautista, Art by Ronin Core and Elbert Or, published by Nautilus Comics), and was very impressed. Almost everything that was wrong about the earlier sampler has been rectified. Bautista's writing is tighter and less long-winded, allowing a smoother narrative flow. And while I am still not a fan of the mangaesque art-style, I am happy to see a more independent flavor in the second story. A stunning revelation was the pinup by Camille Francisco - dynamic and leaving you wanting more.

This is not bad for a first issue, in fact, it's quite good, laying the groundwork for further developments down the line.

After the release's delay, I am glad to say it was worth the wait. Go and get it.
