So if stories were people, and three people could have a baby together, I think Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings and the Shannara Chronicles would give birth to Hinterkind.

Fitting conclusion to an excellent story that could have gone on plenty longer than it did.

"Mankind is gone. It's time had come. It is already little more than memory.
We are all Hinterkind now."

Unfortunately in my mind, I'll always be comparing Hinterkind and Coffin Hill, two Vertigo books that were launched at around the same time that I started reading. Hinterkind only beat Coffin Hill to cancellation by 3 issues, so this final volume is the last storyline of a series that had the potential to go on for a hell of a lot longer.

The volume opens with a two part flashback that gives us some background on the reason why the human race died out in the first place, as well as the background

totally unfair that this series ended so briefly. it's probably one of the best post-apoc comics out there.
While I loved this series, I feel like this is the weakest (and thus the most disappointing) addition to it. Unfortunately, it's also the conclusion, which is even more disappointing to the readers. Ultimately, I'm not entirely sure I can blame the writers here (or the artist for their gorgeous work) as I'm not sure if the publisher canned the series early or if it simply wasn't well plotted. I think I would have given this a higher rating if not for the rushed nature of the conclusion and the ...more

So much wasted potential.

The second volume had finally got the characters right and things going with the all-out-war storyline and them it just ends with exposition of what could have been.

It could have really grown into an post-apocalypse Fables but I'm am at least happy we got three volumes.

If this series continues, after this book is a good place to stop reading. I don't love how the book speeds up and the ending comes with less feeling and focus. I was iffy about reading this volume but the others were just good enough to continue. The book was all right.

Really enjoyed the title arc, an exciting exploration of how the Blight happened, and what was going on just before and after. Shame the whole series wasn't more like that. The series rapidly moves to its end after that, a satisfying storybook-style conclusion.

I did not realize when I picked this up that this would be the final volume, but I'm satisfied with the shortness of the series. The ending felt a bit too tidy, but I liked the surprise of finding out what the humans truly were. A bit out there, but entertaining.

I feel so let down, I thought this story was new, fresh, inventive. A post apocalypse with elves how cool! Except not because it's basically the most popular fantasy stories slightly rewritten.

Well. That was abrupt. I did not know the series was ending and still didn't have a clue until the final five pages. Very strange.

Den avslutande delen av Hinterkind känns som att de avslutade serien betydligt snabbare än vad de ursprungligen tänkte. Därför blir handlingen forcerad. Som helhet ingen serie att rekommendera.

A great wrap up to the story, but I'm sad to see it go.

Edginton sees part of the key to his success coming from good relationships with artists, especially D'Israeli and Steve Yeowell as well as Steve Pugh and Mike Collins. He is best known for his steampunk/alternative history work (often with the artist D'Israeli) and is the co-creator of Scarlet Traces, a sequel to their adaptation of H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds. With 2000 AD we has written ...more
