Devolution By Rick Remender Graphic Novel Review

Thursday, July 7, 2016

What is it about?

Every living creature on Earth has been devolved - the evolutionary clock turned back, reverting all life to odd mutations and prehistoric incarnations. The cities of man are little more than bloody territories ruthlessly dominated by tribal Neanderthals ruling from the backs of mammoths, packs of saber-toothed tigers, and giant man-eating insects. Raja, one of the few remaining "Still Sapien" humans, heads to San Francisco to find the antidote for the world-changing DVO-8 viral agent. But to cross the wasteland, she'll have to convince the last pocket of humanity to join her quest... and survive the Nazi hillbillies that rule them through fear! 



What did I think?

The story is great and instantly had me hooked. The art done by Jonathan Wayshak really brought it to life. I found the world that Remender created to be very intriguing and my only wish is that I got to spend more time in it. This story is very fast paced and in my opinion a little too short. However, regardless of the pacing, you are still given plenty of information to keep you from feeling lost.

4/5
