Southern Cross follows Alex Braith as she boards the tanker Southern Cross to go to Titan to collect the belongings of her sister who died there while working on an oil rig.
When she gets settled in her cabin on the tanker she discovers that she has a roommate named Erin who she tries to ignore. While eating in the mess hall she overhears some workers say that there is someone investigating her sister’s case on the ship. Alex deduces it is Erin and wants to talk to her but Erin is sleeping so Alex waits.
So far this story mixes, in my opinion, the sci-fi genre and mystery genre. It is starting out to be a good story and await issue two next month to read more. You should give this comic a chance, I don’t think you will be disappointed with it.
