In 2071, a crew of bounty hunters, known as Cowboys, travel the solar system in search of outlaws on their reliable ship, Bebop.
Spike has a past full of violence he can never escape. Jet was a cop who lost faith in the system. Faye is a renegade who trusts nobody. Together they hunt for bounty and adventure, all the while searching for the one thing that connects them all – somewhere they belong.
In this jam-packed tale of hijinks and mayhem, the crew are on the hunt for a bounty called Melville, an ex-syndicate member who possesses a vest which grants the user unlimited luck! A prize as deadly as it is dazzling – how can they resist?
Supernova Swing is a graphic novel based on the netflix adaption of Cowboy Bebop that was cancelled. I have seen and read Cowboy Bebop in the past so I was of course curious about this.
The graphic novel uses the basic premises with the characters of Cowboy Bebop. But the only one that truly felt like an original character was Jet. Both Faye and Spike felt like poor imitations. Absolutely no depth.
The art is very nice and dark which does fit with the world of the cowboys and the storyline of this one. But the characters are drawn after the actors in the series. That makes these characters look very polished and more so fitting to the hollywood standards. Which is not fitting for the series.
Regardless of that, if you aren’t as attached to Cowboy Bebop from previous like some of us, this is an entertaining read.
