Enter the Immutables, who make Dr. Kelly Vu and Dr. David Kim’s super-heroic body-sharing problems feel downright frivolous when they make their position clear-mere humans are not meant to live forever, and these godlike beings will put an end to anyone who tries!

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: The third chapter of this series is both entertaining and thought provoking. Although David and Kelly worked seamlessly in the past, there is a clear hierarchy between the two. It is fascinating to watch how the differences in their personalities guide their thoughts and how one controls the other both emotionally and physically. Now that their potential adversaries and allies are altogether, I am curious as to which personality will have the final say on the direction the Duo align themselves with, and how the other personality will react.

    The Art: This issue uses some interesting techniques to visually represent the experiences and David and Kelly. Firstly, I am very impressed with the lettering. The clear demarcation between voices and monologue type is pivotal to the storytelling and Chiang does an excellent job of providing that clarity. Secondly, the illustration conveys the internal battle being held between the Duo in an emotionally captivating manner. The emphasis placed on character expression and form does much to convey the tone of the story and provides insight into the feelings of those surrounding David. Overall, I found the artwork to be well crafted and timely.

    The strange partnership of David and Kelly looked to be over last issue as Kelly disappeared into the void, and while of course she’s not gone, coming that close seems to have dramatically affected her. As David tries to work with a potential partner to create a new body for her, her desperation increases—and she discovers she can take control of the body if she pushes hard enough. So we have a role reversal this issue, but it doesn’t get to be explored for too long—because Kelly only has one thing in mind. The villain of this series, the mysterious Dr. Chung, finally takes center-stage this issue and his motivation is revealed—and it’s not what I expected at all. He gets to spend a little too much time monologuing this issue, and his various henchmen feel pretty generic, but there’s a strong central conflict in this series that I’m looking forward to seeing explored further.
