The excellent Jeff Lemire begins his first serial comic with an excellent start. The post-apocalyptic world he creates has shades of Mad Max and Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" but it's definitely Lemire's vision you see on the page. From the brothel where the women dress like mutants to the roving gangs of humans wearing animal masks, something very strange is going on here.
Lemire's art is also the best he's ever done, with Jose Villarrubia adding vibrant colours to bring the world to life.
Lemire keeps the reader guessing throughout the story, answering just enough to keep you going but allowing enough to remain unanswered so you'll come back for Book 2, especially with a cliffhanger like the one at the end.
A promising start to an original series.
Jeff Lemire is the writer and artist on this book and he has created something that feels part fairy tale, part horror and post apocalyptic adventure with an unlikely pair of characters. Along the way we find out more about the characters, but also how it is today in this ruined world. Gus is a wide-eyed innocent, and Jepperd is at the other end of the spectrum, a man of violence who has seen it all. But both of them have a unique code, Gus with what he was taught by his father and Jepperd who is driven, but at this point we don't know a lot about him. He's a tough man, someone used to surviving by himself in this world, so that tells you something about what he's probably had to do. The conversations between the two of them are sweet, touching and peculiar, with each learning a little from the other. The dialogue is short and sweet where it needs to be, giving space to let the art breathe.
Gus is also haunted by dreams and terrible nightmares, some of them terrible and others suggestive.Read more ›
This was different and i LOVED IT.
One of the BEST comics i have ever read, fantastic story line, love the simple but effective art work.
Only complaint is the pages feel like 20 year old recycled newspaper, this deserved MUCH better treatment.
