bookshelves: sequential-art, post-apocalypse
Read in August, 2007

100 years after the Big Wet. Somewhere in America …

So begins yet another post-apocalyptic graphic novel. The first issue in this 6-issue compilation interested me. There was unrecognized technology, a letter in the old language, two persons with special powers, and of course the world after an apocalypse. Unfortunately, the rest of the trade moves into well-worn territory of the cross-country trip and fighting different kinds of bad guys. There is some political/religious intrigue in the major city that somehow tied in with the letter in the old language, but it was all a bit too "we're going to draw this out for a couple years" and not interesting in itself.

All in all, it's not badly done, but it doesn't hold my interest.
