Things are not going well for Falcon Models agent Ceecee. Her newest find, Perdita, goes missing on her first day, and when Ceecee goes to investigate, she finds the girl’s apartment a bloody crime scene, with hints leading to the occult. But, it’s a lucky thing that Ceecee is more than just a good agent; she’s a powerful sorceress with ties to all levels of known worlds. And, she’s going to need all the help she can get . . . if she can trust it.
With its first issue out, writers Frankel and Jones have set up an interesting scenario. They’re obviously having a lot of fun with the magical elements of their tale but are currently giving the model world a short shrift in this intro chapter. It should be interesting to see how well they make these two disparate (but oddly similar) worlds collide. It’s a nice touch that Ceecee interrupts Persephone’s day job of judging souls and granting boons to take a mid-day spa visit, but it will be nice to see a lot more skewering of those Sex and the City memes.
Artist Wayne Brown’s pencils and inks (aided by Silva’s coloring) give a nice, sensual feel to the layouts and characters. There are cheesecake and beefcake a plenty in these pages, which is only fitting considering this tale, which manages to ably switch between the mystical and mundane worlds.
A good beginning that will only lead to a deeper threat, Frankel and Jones promise a mystery that will reveal “a plot that could undo the very order of the cosmos.” Set against this backdrop, Signed C could be an interesting story to keep an eye on.
