Review: Money Shot Comes Again #2
From Vault Comics
The sexy sci-fi continues its second volume from Vault Comics; this is Money Shot Comes Again #2.
Stuck on a mining platform whizzing through space, the XXX-plorers are attacked by a whole bunch of characters we were only able to put in the book because we're calling this a "Porn Parody" and, apparently, you can do whatever the hell you want once you make it super clear (we're making it super clear) that this is parody! Meanwhile, indie comix darling Cherry Popstar has been turned into a bored billionaire's personal pet AI, and she has some ideas about how to, like, run the universe!

Moving on from the previous issue, there seem to be schemes within schemes.
I enjoyed the buildup to this first up, with a brilliant flashback which gives a little backstory to one of the characters and why she may be having some issues with the attack happening now. The meta comments here (and throughout) are very on the nose, making it all the more enjoyable.
The fight scene cunningly merges into something more seedy, but it is very funny and well played out.
In the background to this, there is more commentary on the billionaires and their plans (yes, more than one), and I like how there are some bleak looks at pop culture and the ways of the rich.
This issue combines the story with sex and action in a fun way, and there are still some aspects to be built on. Some fun art in different *ahem* positions too.
