Arc Reactions – 76 – Turncoat

We cover Turncoat from Boom Studios in this episode. This comic is a great look at the effects of colonialism on the common man set in a sci-fi dystopian world. Creators Alex Paknadel and Artyom Trakhanov do a great job with this 4-issue series telling a compelling tale and giving us lots to talk about.
