The sexploration in space continues as things heat up for our XXX-plorers in issue #9, Boom Boom.

PLOT AND STORY

Our troubled team continue their game of cat and mouse with the space knights while issue 9 takes a moment for love. A book which prides itself on sexual conquests and X-rated themes reminds us that emotion still drives much of the story. 

With tensions beginning to rise between the group it falls on the shoulders of our alien culture epidemiologist to step forward and save the day. Saving the day in Money Shot normally means having sex with someone and as promised by Writer Tim Seeley on twitter, this is where they step things up. No spoilers as always with my reviews but some of the most graphic and funniest material of this series occurs during issue #9.

ARTWORK

Issue #9 felt like a heavy story and dialogue issue with letterer Crank! doing a great job including all the dialogue without restricting the art. However two artistic moments in particular stood out for me which I want to talk about. 

Firstly there are a few moments in this issue where the use of an alien device can alter someone’s appearance. I found the way this was depicted was very clever and visually stunning whilst also being incredibly clear in what is happening for the reader. The character breaks down almost into a pixelated figure which looks amazing. Kudos to Rebekah Isaacs for the drawing which is complimented brilliantly by Kurt Michael Russell’s colours. 

The second stand out image in this issue was the big reveal of the Bulbs. Visually stunning giving us something completely original while creating so many questions about what they are.

FINAL THOUGHTS 

People should get behind this series, or on top of it or underneath it or whatever position you want because Money shot is up for anything. 

I read this via an advance preview copy issued by Vault Comics and received no incentive to review this comic.
