The search for Captain Victory continues as his younger self is trapped on Earth and has no idea who he really is, why he can do what he can do and is feeling very isolated because of it – a stranger in a strange land, alone and confused. Mister Mind finally has a lead on the various canisters containing the cloned bodies of the good Captain except he is unable to narrow it down just as to where they are so Captain Klavus orders a more standard physical search to take place, something that will take time but is necessary. Klavus is an interesting fellow and one that has not necessarily been in the spotlight so far, so hopefully, that will change as the book moves on with readers perhaps seeing more of the man along with the rest of the crew in bigger roles, the book not being just about Captain Victory. Joe Casey continues to nail down one of the most exciting and more traditional tales of science-fiction on the stands today. This is the kind of title that has been sorely missing in the market as of late, one that features all of those classic elements that make for a good sci-fi tale including a ship with a captain, populated by a crew of different races that each have their own unique personality, the exploration of worlds, a quest for a missing crew member and some mystery to go along with it all. Month in and month out, the artwork by Nathan Fox is simply amazing and with his co-conspirators, this issue being Jim Mahfood and Farel Dalrymple, they give the book the epic feel that it needs to tell such a tale. This issue was particularly fantastic as it featured Mister Mind more than usual, as well as Sergeant Tarin heading off to see what he can find of his missing Captain. Joe Casey and company have been making Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers one of the best titles on the stands and you are doing yourself a disservice if you are not reading it.
