Crowded, Vol. 1

Crowded (2018)

Synopsis

Ten minutes in the future, the world runs on an economy of job shares and apps—like Reaper, a platform for legal assassination. When the apparently average Charlie Ellison wakes up one day to find out she’s the target of a million dollar Reapr campaign, she hires Vita, the lowest rated bodyguard on the Dfend app. Now, with all of Los Angeles hunting Charlie, she and Vita will have to figure out who wants her dead, and why, before the campaign’s 30 days—or their lives—are over.

Reviews

“Vita and Charlie are engaging protagonists, if not particularly likable, and thus far the story seems to implicitly condemn the cutthroat world they live in without feeling like a preachy ‘millennials are killing common decency’ headline. It’s a story perfectly suited to today, a high-octane adventure that sits happily next to stories of Silicon Valley hopefuls reinventing things like busses and juice.” (Source: Women Write About Comics)
