A small town where everyone knows each other but behind closed doors secrets dwell, find themselves encapsulated within an impregnable dome and have to fight for survival from an extra-terrestrial giant sperm and hoards of naked girls who are born from giant eggs - Now if that doesn't intrigue you I don't know what will.
The Luna brothers weave together the cliches of the horror b-movies of the 80's, sexual politics and teenage angst with such a deft hand that it's hard to tear yourself away from this weighty tomb.
While the ending may raise more questions than answers this is definitely a worthy read for any fan of the comic book medium who are looking for something other than the spandex superhero stylings that the big 2 companies Marvel and D.C. publish.
If you like The Walking Dead but have had your fill of Zombies then this could be the book for you.

Format: Paperback
I didn't buy this title from Amazon, I bought it in a very well known bricks and mortar establishment without knowing anything about it at all. I'd never heard of the authors since my knowledge of the comics scene was left in a spandex filled decade, far far away. And so older now, I wanted something more fitting to my more matured tastes.

I'd read other graphic novels prior to this (Y! The Last Man being of note) and felt I wanted more of these types of genres and storylines. So I took a gamble and paid my £30+ GBPs and eventually got around to reading it.

What a masterpiece.

I have to say, I don't easily get excited by a lot of the things in 'The World' today (been there, done that, what else you got?) but I did not expect this book to be a fantastic as it is.

I literally could not put this down (cliche, I know, but no less true). It really shines a light on the true nature of people when adversity rips of the pretentious masks of civility as redefined by absurd political correctness politics. And really examines how this PC era has affected the heterosexual westernised male's place in a PC westernised society that seems more concerned with portraying them as nothing more than spineless, lazy, deadbeat idiots or a danger to women, children and society, than as human beings who have achieved a great many things and who have literally helped shaped (in a lot of ways for the better) the modern world humans live in.

The Luna Brothers have really taken these matters and sculpted a story that truly entertains, engages, excites and makes you think about the real nature of the people you'd call 'your neighbours' and how much current day media propaganda has influenced that nature.

One of my altime favourate GNs and so when this dropoed to under £25 I bought it. If you are into scifi and Graphic Novels then this should be a must. Bit raunchy in parts and ultra violent in others but the concept and artwork are only better by the storytelling. Top notch.

Small town under a dome facing a crisis that pits men against women 16 Jun. 2013
By F. Orion Pozo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A small town is cut off from the rest of the world by a transparent dome. The fifty six townspeople find themselves threatened by a giant glowing sperm and a horde of naked women who kill the local women and reproduce through sexual intercourse with the men. The invaders' different reaction to males and females pits the women against the men for survival. The authors have created a community much more diverse than normal, creating a microcosm of the USA to show how people react to crisis.

Originally published in 24 separate issues, there is plenty of room for character development and cliff-hanging moments. The main characters are two men, a low self esteem cashier and the town cop, and the female bartender they both love. As the naked women multiply and townspeople are brutally slain, there is lots of graphic content that is handled surprisingly well. The story provides enough detail to convey the plot while relying on gory or titillating imagery too much.

The setting seems strangely similar to Stephen King's novel Under The Dome, only he doesn't use naked alien women and a giant spermatozoa to accelerate the plot of his 1000+ page book. The similarities are enough to make me think he read Girls and saw a good plot device.

Great collection, OK binding 7 April 2013
By ChibiNeko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I hate, really hate to detract a star for the binding, but I feel that I must in this circumstance. Why? Because this came to me with part of it slightly broken-ish. The spine wasn't exactly broken and I could tell it wasn't read, but the last few pages were sort of broken in that way that you get when someone has bent the pages far back enough to where you can see the white from the book's spine. I wouldn't say the spine was exactly broken, but it's the type of book injury that will inevitably lead to pages falling out later on down the line. I think this is partially due to the book being so darn thick and the pages so huge. It's the sort of book that would probably have benefited from being two omnibus paperbacks rather than one large chunk. If you're looking to collect something you can read and re-read again, I'd probably splurge for the hardback. It'll put up with more constant reading, but if you're looking for something to read sporadically then this will do the trick for the most part. The pictures are great and the paper the pages are printed on are nice, though.

That said, this was a pretty cool comic. I can see where this wouldn't become a big mainstream series, but I can see where it deserves as much attention as it did manage to get. This is obviously the type of comic that will probably take on a different light depending on the type of reader. I'd read as much in one of the interviews with the creators and was delighted to see this is true. I was able to more easily identify with the female characters. Even though they did some pretty awful things during the course of the series, so did the men. I wish I could give a more in-depth analysis of some of the elements, but y'know... spoilers. Part of the fun of the series is discovering the plot as it goes along and coming up with your own interpretation. I loved how utterly human the characters were. None of them were perfect and there weren't any superhero-esque figures here. The closest would probably be the Sheriff, but even he has some serious flaws. I even liked how there weren't even any clear cut and definitive answers to everything. You're left to wonder about how and why some things are what they are.

This isn't exactly a perfect series, though. Everything is well-developed enough to where they do their job and you know what is going on, but at the same time there were smaller side-plots of a sort that I wish had gotten a slight bit more time in the sun. The same thing goes for some of the characters other than the main 3-4 people. I'd loved to have seen a bit more at times, although I'm not sure how they'd really get a chance to do that without disrupting the story's flow.

You're really either going to rave about this or you're going to just sort of shrug and wonder what all of the hype is about it. I would put myself in the "rave" category because although there are flaws, I like that I can read more into this than some of the other stuff out there. (Not that there's anything wrong with the comics that don't make you think as much- I read more of those than I do this stuff, honestly.)

Great Story 1 Feb. 2013
By J. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ultimately, this comic is a great analysis of male/female relationship. On the surface, however, it is one great read. Like The Sword, the Luna Brothers do a masterful job of telling the story. Though it feels a little rushed at the end, it is pretty consistent with the overall pace of the comic. I highly recommend this book.
As with other Image titles, the binding on this TP is poor. The first and last few pages were coming out by the time I finished reading it. And since Amazon doesn't securely package single book orders, I would suggest ordering it with one or two more items.

Good story, but binding is poor 23 April 2013
By Star Killer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read the reviews for this graphic novel and was concerned about the binding on this product and I have to say I completely agree that it's very poor! I made sure that I was reading in such a way that I didn't put any stress on the binding (the book is on the heavier side). I noticed that when I got near the last 50 or so pages that they were starting to seperate from the base of the glued binding. I say if you are even a little rough on your books, you will lose pages. Unfortunately I have to take away 1 star from the rating simply because I know pages will fall out on multiple readings!

As far as the story goes, I enjoyed it! The story was interesting and the characters are very believable, even if the story itself is pretty crazy. I do have a minor gripe, and that has to deal with the character design. All the male characters, for the exception of the elderly one, look almost identical and it was hard to tell them apart just by looking at them. But that didn't keep me from enjoying this story and it kept me interested and wanting to turn the page. Also, the ending was a bit lackluster... that might leave a sour taste in one's mouth, but I still enjoyed it overall.

4 stars - 1 star for binding
Great Purchase. 7 Dec. 2013
By Kevin Vasquez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I received the product within a week after I ordered it and I couldn't wait to read it. After the first few hours of reading I enjoyed how much money I saved and how much content is contained for the price. I had ordered a used version from K&G Books and it was more than I expected. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves different takes on comics and gripping illustrations.
