This review is from: Shakara (Hardcover)
This has got to be one of the best - yet strangest - series ever to run in the pages of the top-selling UK comic, 2000AD.
The last man, an astronaut, survives the destruction of earth by strange wasp-like beings. He is captured and sent to the slave markets. He gets into a fight with one of the other inmates... who promptly kills him! Trust me, I haven't spoilt anything here - that's literally the first two pages. But it gives a good idea of why this series seems so fresh and invigoratingly unpredictable.
"SHAKARA!", cries the alien protagonist - "SHAKARA!" No other words. Is it his name? His species? Or something more sinister? Fighting the powerful all over the galaxy, armed with little more than a handgun and a shipful of strange new technology, he/she/it quickly blazes a trail to the top of the Galaxy's Most Wanted list...
Top creative team Morrison and Flint create a universe ruled by psychotic, illustrated in black-and white with spashes of red, that draws you in and won't let you go. With a new series being launched next year, this is the perfect chance for newcomers to get into the glorious battle.
