Synopsis: Far away from Cardiff and the Hub, Captain Jack and Gwen dive deep to unravel the secrets of an ancient, extinct civilisation, whose colossal megaweapons are being primed to affect the Earth. Caught between human agencies, infiltrating aliens, a unknowing public and an uncertain future, can a Torchwood stripped of its resources and staff still save the day?!
Review: Torchwood: World Without End #2 continued exposition and set up. One set of enemies was defeated. paving the way for another. Literally buried secrets were uncovered. Structurally, the story was a bit tedious actually, elevated only by the character beats. I hope #3 is stronger.
The art by Antonio Fuso and Pasquale Qualano was wonderful as usual. However, my favorite panels on page 20 didn’t involve action or characters, but vistas. “In a galaxy too close for comfort…” Fuso, Qualano, and colorist Marco Lusko tried very hard to give the Hubble Telescope a run for its money.
So far, I don’t feel as connected to this iteration of Torchwood as I do to the Big Finish audios. I hope that changes.
