What Just Happened?
The story in this book is really interesting, so I chose not to spoil anything that isn’t in the preview. So anyway, this seems like a pretty great premise for a book, albeit a little similar to the Realm (also from Image) but I can tell you beyond the initial premise the similarities end, this book seems to be heading in a vastly different direction.
I am really interested to hear more about how this started and how people have survived, the fact that people are alive at all is pretty super interesting. Likewise, the monster designs are pretty alien and bizarre looking, super cool.
For a first issue, this has a lot of set up to do, it comes at a pretty perfect time, with Invincible ending there was going to be a Kirkman shaped void in my life! That said I might like a little more exposition into what’s going on.
