Bleedout is less of a terrifying story about a possible future for humanity, and instead moves toward being an enjoyable comic 11 Jan. 2012
By GraphicNovelReporter.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Bleedout could very easily be a graphic novel about the global politics of oil, or a pro-ecological tale of a dying Earth, or some kind of outlandish, post-apocalyptic science fiction--but while it skirts these themes, it doesn't focus on any of the above. Despite a bleak opening chapter about how the world is essentially falling to pieces due to a sudden disappearance of all of Earth's oil resources, author Mike Kennedy instead focuses on the characters running the seedy underworld in Sunrise City.

While this approach seems to evade the larger (and more important) picture of what may be happening throughout the rest of the world during this crisis, it also makes Bleedout far less depressing. Kennedy begins to write about a very real problem that exists in our world, but it's not long before the plot skews toward science-fictional superhumans, imaginary bacteria, and unusual conspiracies. All of the short stories that are crafted here fit very elegantly into one another to form a coherent story, in spite of the countless characters and complexity of the plot line. It's occasionally hard to ignore the fact that there's a much larger problem than one city's petty crimelords, but in this way, Bleedout is less of a terrifying story about a possible future for humanity, and instead moves toward being an enjoyable comic. There's only so much apocalypse one reader can take, and by making it digestible, we can extrapolate enough bleakness to assume that this is happening all over the world.

Kennedy has created a book with absolutely no dialogue, which is an unfamiliar and interesting approach to visual storytelling. Instead, omniscient captions describing actions dot every panel, ostensibly coming from a narrator performing a prolonged introduction to a larger story, presenting the main characters and describing how their actions have lead to Earth's ruination. By the end of the book, we're not too chronologically far into the Earth-without-oil scenario, but we're very deep into what makes Sunrise City run, and steeped in Jesus analogies representing a main character who remains mostly unseen. Bleedout is building up to something much larger and ends on a cliffhanger.

Each chapter employs a different artist, all of whom are very good at interpreting their designated characters, as gross and underhanded as they all are. While the methodology behind using 10 different artists for one story is something of a mystery, the very significant shift between styles throughout the book isn't as distracting as it may seem, mostly owing to the fact that all of this art is really well done, and the lettering throughout is the same.

Bleedout is intended for an adult audience, given the profanity, violence, and nudity and sexual situations within, but as the adult graphic novel market becomes more prominent, Bleedout is a pretty ideal addition that will hopefully continue to grow into a larger story.
