Description

"Completely ridiculous, in the most sublime sense of the word... But it’s not all gags, as [Cannon] wrings tremendous tension, action, and intrigue out of his many-stranded plot, and the dozen-strong constellation of major characters each have deep emotional stakes on the line." -- Booklist (starred review)
"Cannon somehow manages to one-up himself... Crater XV represents one of the finest examples of storytelling via cartooning available." -- Under the Radar
"Cannon’s enthusiastic and flexible art is well suited for both the comedic highs and the dream-crushing lows of his stories, whose epic scale is made intensely human by his strong characters. Few cartoonists know better the meeting place between grief, humor, and adventure like Cannon, and this second Shanks story is further proof of his abilities as a storyteller." -- Publishers Weekly
Straight from the pages of the hit digital series DOUBLE BARREL!
You've never seen a Cold War like this! In Crater XV, the follow-up to 2009's Eisner-nominated Far Arden, Kevin Cannon weaves together an intoxicating tale of swashbuckling adventure, abandoned moon bases, bloodthirsty walruses, rogue astronauts, two-faced femme fatales, sailboat chases, Siberian pirates, international Arctic politics, and a gaggle of horny orphans. Mixed up in all of this are Army Shanks, our salty sea dog still reeling from a devastating loss, and Wendy Byrd, a plucky teenager who wants nothing more than a one-way ticket off the face of the Earth. For mystery, thrills, and Arctic chills, set a course for Crater XV!

From Publishers Weekly

May 06, 2013 – In Cannon’s second full-length Army Shanks adventure, Shanks is a scarred man following the events of Far Arden. Struggling with loss and heartbreak, he is ready to buy a one-way ticket to Antarctica when developments on Devon Island change his plans: Shanks befriends a teenage girl named Wendy who is intent on raising money to join a space program in Europe, and a mysterious Siberian oil tanker called the Lunayev anchors in Canadian waters, claiming it is launching a rocket to the moon. To help Wendy raise the money for her galactic adventure, Shanks sneaks over to the Siberian tanker and discovers that the rocket is real—and he believes a woman onboard to be Pravda, a long-lost friend from the orphanage he grew up in. Soon, many more hijinks are afoot involving rockets. The Shanks-Pravda romantic storyline drags at times, but Cannon’s enthusiastic and flexible art is well suited for both the comedic highs and the dream-crushing lows of his stories, whose epic scale is made intensely human by his strong characters. Few cartoonists know better the meeting place between grief, humor, and adventure like Cannon, and this second Shanks story is further proof of his abilities as a storyteller.
