Customer Review

on 10 March 2005
I must admit I am relatively new to this "graphic novel" lark, but I was not impressed by this at all. Compared to the recent contemporary releases (Daniel Clowes' brilliant "David Boring" and "Ghost World" spring to mind), this is mere comic book trash. How could it possibly labeled as a "novel" when both the characters and plot are so weak? The futuristic concept looks like it was devised in the 80s, and I'm afraid to say I didn't like the artwork too much either, which looks stiff and old-fashioned compared to newer artists.
The media of graphic novelisation appears to be developing, and is slowly becoming a more respected from of art and literacy; relying on bad language and drugs to make this geeky sci-fi look "hard" just isn't enough for it to keep up with the serious drama novels at the fore of this genre.
