This is a killer and interesting comic. Originally released in January of 2018, it is a hugely politically charged comic series. Civil and political unrest has divided the country many times over. Social injustice reigns supreme and war is among the citizens everywhere. The ignorance of one race being better than any other has risen to power and in a sad and unfortunate turn of darkness, it is White Supremacy at the helm. A war has ensued between the population and the White Supremacist Regime as the people of the land try to reclaim their country, their way of life, their rights and their very souls for survival.
In this story, America is in a serious police state. It’s definitely filled with hate and propaganda, decisive divides that are corroding all kinds of relationships and values. I mean, the country is just in shambles. The government, or what’s left of it, is operating with impunity. People must be very careful as to what they do and say.
Danger is all around. There are many underground groups. There are loyalists and radicals, anarchists and detractors. Everybody seems to have been wronged and they all have their own agenda. It’s only a matter of time before things start REALLY heating up. The war is just beginning. It’s only going to get worse before it gets better. That’s the only option now that it’s begun. And for a lot of people, this is personal.
I think this is going to be a fantastic series. I really wish I would have found it when it first came out so I didn’t have to play catch up. This one would have been fun to look forward to each month.
But, it does seem to be very politically charged, like I stated in the beginning. That doesn’t bother me but if there are some super sensitive people out there that are so emotionally attached to their political views that it skews their ability to be entertained then, this comic is not for you.
In addition to great overall content, you’ve got a best-selling author and an award-winning colorist working with a stellar team to create some of the wall depictions and descriptions of what very well could be the near future (if certain people don’t get certain parts of anatomy out of other certain parts of anatomy, that’s all I’ll say, no politics).
Definitely worth the read and there’s even a second round to the series so it doesn’t end with just the twelve issues. You might want to give it a look.
