‘Danger Zone One, Vol. 1: Welcome to Pallad City‘ is created by Midnight Publishing with artwork from several illustrators Katsu, Zen Jirakun, Salaix, and Ryo Kawakami.
Reena Saffron is a young woman from a small town who is fresh out of the police academy and gets her badge in Pallad City, one of the largest cities in the country. She is partnered with hardboiled detective Madison Wynter, who does not seem to like her new partner. Soon, the girls find themselves encounter mad scientists, giant sharks, criminals in Halloween masks, and a host of other villains who have nothing but trouble on their minds.
If you have an aversion to fan service, skip this one as it is for mature audiences. That being said, the artwork is manga-inspired making it sleek, cool, and pretty neat. Every artist is tremendously talented, but my personal favorite was Katsu who did the first two chapters.
As for the plot, it is episodic in nature. The only over-arching story arc is Madison putting up with Reena’s lack of experience and peppy personality. The two are night and day, but they somehow manage to save the day in the various stories, though not without some awkward wardrobe malfunctions. The sense of humor lands, the plots are interesting, and the characters are fun to tag along with on this adventure.
