A title that drew my attention with its astounding artwork. A big plus was the story's premise was just as attention worthy. There were so many things that really happened in this first issue of The Last of The Greats much of which was darkly motivated yet very entertaining to get caught up in. The issue begins with one of the many individuals who for a close relation are , well , superheroes. Although, humanity welcomed them at first, they soon turned on them and eradicated them. Now a select group of humans journey to the home of one of the last remaining Greats (the names humanity gave to these individuals that are like Gods) to plead for protection from an alien intruder who seeks to harm everyone on Earth.
The Last surviving for the reason that he wasn't like his fellow brothers and sisters who wished to win humanity's worship. It becomes obvious he believes that humans should be forced to follow higher beings like him and his brothers and sisters. Although for him slowly winning their worship slowly and peacefully is just preposterous. So disgusted by the human race agrees to helping Earth with the condition that they agree to worship him and drains them of their energy except one person , Charles , since feels that he's a good man overall especially because one of his many sisters loved him when he was assigned to be a guide for The Greats on Earth.
What is a horrifying shock though is that The Last would kill the human messengers that plead to him for protection. The Last seems to be moving forward into furthering his own agenda of which we as the readers are still kept in the dark. Even so, we can quickly surmiss that he's up to some devious planning and doesn't care for the welfare of most humans. Its a dark comic in terms of its story and there are a few instances of glorified gory deaths.
What's to highlight is that The Last of The Greats Volume 1 for one issue had a lot going on in events even if it ended with a cliffhanger. The cliffhanger is one that you know is there but leaves you satisfied and simultaneously with your appetite wetting for more!
For comic throppers who would like something darker and brilliantly new in superheroes. Overall: Amazing read! Genre: Comic/Graphic Novel...more

Might be the best of all the comic issues in the Pariah world. Why you ask? Quite simply it brings together all the characters seen from the previous comic issues. Pariah Issue #1: Brent, Pariah Issue #2: Lila , and Pariah Issue #3 Maudsley. In this issue we see that the reason the Vitros were all gathered and captured in the previous issues had a purpose. The mastermind behind this whole plan is Franklin Hyde. While you may be tempted to believe the reason for his trying to get all the Vitros in one place is surely is nefarious it isn't really as it seems. tries to explain himself and with that readers should get to see deeper into 's past. Just as everyone is acquaintanced something shockingly surprising happens to the gathered Vitros. This issue was hands down the most action-packed which was really likeable for more things are going on. What stood out was that again all the characters before encountered were present , so there was some conflict between them and even compromise. It becomes increasingly obvious some don't trust the intentions of Franklin Hyde. The particularly neat thing about Pariah Issue #4 is that we are presented to the history of Hyde which brings a lot of sympathy for the guy. The artwork in this issue continues to be even more satisfying. It has a bright watercolor appearance. Overall: Amazing read! Comic/ Graphic Novel...more

In Issue #1 we learned about Brent a Vitro (term in the Pariah world meaning people with high intelligence).

She's on the run with her group of Vitros where the governmment is trying to round them up. Lila knows time is of the essence to discover who is framing the Vitros. She also knows because of the explosion caused in the lab she worked at all Vitros are now in danger. ...more
