Muy buena premisa. Muy buena ambientación. Dibujo y diseños bastante buenos. Muy buena cronología alternativa del mundo. Lástima que la historia en sí no tenga la fuerza que debería tener la suma de sus partes, y que hay unas cuantas escenas de más (y alguna de menos). De todos modos, fue una lectura bastante interesante.

Wilson and Fox don't mess around. From the beginning to the end, this book is like getting slapped in the face with one of those mutant fish in the fish farm. Highly recommend this to anyone who loves near future dystopias and who isn't afraid of a couple naked people and nonstop ownage.
A fantastic graphic Bio Punk story that deserves more appreciation as integral sci-fi reading, I first came across this comic while it was serialized in Heavy Metal magazine, and upon reading the particular segment published in that issue, which was close to the end of the story, I knew one thing: I had to track this down in its entirety. Not only was the art chaotic, detailed, and some of the most alluring work I've seen in awhile, but the story and characters grabbed hold right away and refuse ...more

This is a comic to read in a radioactive-hot-sticky-Thai-night rounded by neon fluorescent lights and lot of junk food.

100% Bio Punk, dystopian future, anti-heroes characters, and lot of Fluorescent (sticky) Black.
Came across this at Comic-con this year. Why is it so much of the stuff Heavy Metal puts out are books you feel like you should have heard of but you just haven't? This book is heavy with mood; it's engrossing post-apocalyptic body-modification-obsessed sci-fi set in culturally-divided Singapore, a self-styled genre its author calls "biopunk." Like Paul Pope with an injection of neon, dripping with pure pulp. An interesting read, but not a cheery one.
The writing in this is ambitious, but lacking in execution and characters. The art however, HOLEEEE CRAP it is amazing. Worth picking up just to stare at the giant oversized pages of Nathan Fox art.
Nathan Fox is a phenomenon. This is full on, scuzzy brilliance. Designer genes initiating the bio-organic apocalypse. The collapse of civilization in vibrance & violence.
comparison with the likes of this almost exposes watchmen as gimmicky. true hope for an emerging high art form imho.
This is easily the best graphic novel I've read all year. Singapore late 21st Century.
