“Nikki Harris and the Kaninium Mines of Util”
It's never too soon. Our favorite space heroine is back! After surviving (barely) Tile the Hunter, Nikki Harris, is ready to fight another space menace. Nikki Harris the Cybermation Witch returns with a new issue of her comic book, the second issue of 2015.
As The Adventures of Nikki Harris the Cybermation Witch #7 (“Nikki Harris and the Kaninium Mines of Util”) begin, The Broomstick, a slick space craft, soars into the depths of space. Aboard this fast and nimble ship is Nikki, called to the mining planet of Util to solve a mystery. The planet is the only source of the miracle mineral, Kaninium.
Chief Administrator Georg Agricola and Administrator Pliny tell Nikki that as the sole source of Kaninium, Util is vital to galaxy. However, that vital piece of the galactic puzzle is threatened by a mystery deep in the Kaninium mines. And the other mystery: who is MARION3TT3?
There was a nearly two-year gap between the publication of the fifth and sixth issues of The Adventures of Nikki Harris the Cybermation Witch. Now, issue #7 comes just months after the arrival of issue #6. This new issue is a simple reminder of how much fans of Nikki Harris miss her and of how much we wish writer-artist Carter Allen could give us more Nikki.
As readers demand more space for female heroes and characters in comic books, Nikki Harris is ready to take her place with vivid, full-color adventures possessing a comic flare and a sly wit. With each issue, Allen refines his art and comics, making every new issue of The Adventures of Nikki Harris the Cybermation Witch kind of like a technological upgrade. We are apparently in the midst of a run of more frequent appearances of Nikki Harris, so hopefully a surge of new readers is ready to awaken to this cool comic book.
