Format: Paperback
In 2008, Lance Corporal Danny Redman is on duty in Basra when a car-bomb takes out most of his squad mid-banter. The next thing he knows is waking up deep in the bowels of Porton Down several weeks later to find he has been 'volunteered' to take a new psychotropic drug as part of the 'Dead Eyes' programme. While his fellow 'volunteers' all suffer some fairly fatal side-effects, Danny soon realises his mind has been opened to a whole world he never knew existed. Shady figures in the upper echelons of the British establishment are keen to start exploiting his newfond psyhcic abiltities, but before they can make their move Danny escapes and goes on the run.

So begins a wild ride of Hollow Earth theory, stone henges, ley lines, ball lightning, vril energy and John Wyndham. It's a very rural, home-grown kind of sci-fi horror odyessy across the Lake District that ends with a subterranen Neanderthal civilsation deciding mankind has done enough damage to the planet and releasing an airborne fungal plague to wipe them all out. Just as things are really heating up the whole strip is literally gatecrashed by characters from a different series(!) - as Danny is rudley plucked from his reality and told that not only has he just died, but been recruited to join an agency of multi-dimensonal trouble-shooters...

Danny's disorientation mirrored that of most 2000AD readers when this story originally ran. Nobody was expecting that 'Dead Eyes' would abruptly lead into the first new Indigo Prime stories for two decades, but the rug pull was somehow fitting. John Smith's umbrella title for his stories of parallel-universe hopping beuracrats hadn't been seen since 1998, but you don't need to have read any of the previous stuff.

I'm not entirely sure that John Smith has really mastered the art of the linear narrative. Anthropocalypse tends to jump around like a mad thing (which it is), spitting out ideas like a machine gun. You think the plot is going one way, when it suddenly goes another and gleefully ignores all the dangling plot threads you were quite keen to see resolved, and replaces them with bright shiny new plot threads that probably won't get resolved either. It's not so much a story as an acid trip through a lot of very wierd sci-fi (the 70's sort that had psychedelic boobs on the cover and lots of sex and death inside - though never quite as much as the boobs on the cover might have led you to believe). Characterisation seems to veer towards the cynical and murky, and Indigo Prime seems so populated by the sort of bored employees that make our food service industry the envy of absolutely no-one that it strains my suspension of disbelief that they haven't managed to accidentally eradicate their rather fragile seeming multiverse. Still and all, if like me you loved "Killing Time", you know you'l love this too. It's big, it's mad, and it makes me think I need to be a good deal cleverer to fully appreciate what Smith does here.

Format: Paperback
A strange and weird trip into magick in the modern age as the past and present collide when a gift is opened within a soldiers mind though a terror attack. Its definitely strange and to be honest I liked the first part a lot more than the later as for me, it felt like it took a concept that was fascinating and flung it into the unknown.

Don't get me wrong the storytelling worked wonderfully well, the artwork was beautiful and when added to the twisted minds at 2000AD, it all round was something that took you on an adventure but personally I'd have preferred it had they kept it to just the Neanderthal and the principle character. That was an idea I absolutely loved.

Complicated, But Fun Read 15 Jun. 2014
By Richard Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Indigo Prime isn't one of those reads you can pick up out of nowhere and then breeze through without a single bit of confusion. This is a book that demands your attention and, for the most part, rewards said attention as well.

Indigo Prime had a previous life in, I think, 2000 AD, the British sci-fi comics weekly. As such, there's a ton of back story that goes with the name. The first part of this book, though, seems as if it has nothing to do with the previous iterations. Until we near the end of the story and suddenly realize we've been reading an Indigo Prime story all along.

The ideas in this book fly fast, relatively irate and with an astonishing frequency. They also are some of the most far-out ideas you'll stumble upon outside of Alan Moore's wizarding grimoire.

If you're willing to invest the time and mental energy to play catch up, this is definitely a worthwhile read. If you're looking for something breezy and easy, I'd look somewhere else.
