I bought this book thinking it would all be beautiful artwork such as the cover suggests, but to my dissapointment the artwork varied just too much to my taste.

First rate science-fiction! 23 Jan 2014
By Matthew Scott Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have to hand it to Archaia Entertainment: they just keep getting things right. They know what fans want and they consistently deliver. I have reviewed a couple of titles from Archaia, and each one seems to top the predecessor. Full of innovative story lines and masterful artwork, Archaia is truly a force to be reckoned with in the world of comics and graphic novels. My latest foray into their catalog is no different. HAWKEN: GENESIS is a riveting science-fiction graphic novel that fans of mecha will absolutely love.

I’m a huge fan of mechs, especially those from the ROBOTECH and BATTLETECH eras. I hardly talk about this here because I can’t seem to find much about mechs these days. Maybe I’m not looking hard enough…I don’t know. But when I heard about the HAWKEN series, my interest was immediately piqued. And thankfully, Archaia delivers another grand slam with it.

HAWKEN: GENESIS is written well and the story flows at a nice clip. Author Jeremy Barlow does a great job of piecing together the drama as it unfolds amidst the action. This balancing act is part of what makes this graphic novel so good; the story doesn’t lag and it doesn’t overwhelm you.

But the artwork is the second factor that makes this book so enjoyable. Several artists, painters, and illustrators came together to visualize the world of HAWKEN, and the result is a vibrant success. The characters and mechs look great while the landscapes and scenery mesh perfectly. This allows for complete immersion into the story and therefore gives an enjoyable reading experience.

HAWKEN: GENESIS is a definite win for me. I highly recommend giving it a look.

Graphic Nove;s are a Pleasure 3 April 2013

This novel is wonderful: beautiful art, interesting storyline and engaging characters. I have been a TINTIN and ASTERIX fan for over 40 years. I now own them all in English, and a few in Italian. It is time to move past these and Heavy Metal. This book is great!

Review of Hawken: Genesis 2 April 2013
By AimeeKay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
So I have never heard of the game Hawken, much less played it. However after reading the graphic novel, Hawken: Genesis, I have to say it does look like it would be interesting. The story of Illal and its fall from grace was intriguing. Getting to see those behind the scenes and how they manipulated and brought about Illal's destruction held my attention. I wanted to see who would come out on top and what they were willing to do to get there.
However there were a few things about this graphic novel that I wasn't so keen on.
First the art work. Honestly it just wasn't a style I could get into. It wasn't so much the darkness, as it was the grittiness of the majority of the panels. I tend to like panels with more attention to detail and more attention to the background. I'm not saying that all of the artwork lacked this. For example, the artwork surrounding the edges of the `articles' was detailed. But the majority of the work wasn't and I just didn't enjoy it. The backward part is I do feel the artwork fit well with the story. At least in its dark overtones and grittiness.
Also there were `articles' inserted to add helpful background or more insider information on key points of the story. I guess it was an interesting way to do it. It's just I'm expecting a graphic novel, not extra pages of text without the graphics. The `articles' were interesting and they did add the extra information, just seeing whole pages of text to read wasn't something I was expecting, and it kinda threw off a bit.
The final thing that kinda annoyed me was how certain things were left out. I understand the story jumped ahead by months, years, etc. But some information just seemed to get skipped along the way. An example, when Hawken's lab blew up. You know they are going to do something drastic, but I really was waiting to see how it happened or read how it was rumored to have happened. Just little things like that.
Overall the novel got its point across. The history behind Illal and how it became infected with the Hawken Virus was made clear. It wasn't a bad book; it just wasn't entirely my style. I definitely think that those interested in Hawken the game would find the back story enlightening. Although to be interested in the graphic novel I don't think that it would only be those who know of the game and if it looks like you type of thing definitely pick it up.
