Recommends it for: Fans of the original Aeon Flux animation
The new cover with Charlize Theron is unfortunate. The original 1995 cover is really something special, and worth seeking out if you're the odd sort into both rare first editions AND comic books.

I was a really big fan of Aeon Flux for years. Watched it and loved the original shorts on Liquid TV, waited and waited and waited all year for Aeon to get to the top of that tower and almost had a heart attack watching the final segment. Watched every episode of the series when it aired and didn't under

I have said it elsewhere, but I will say it again: if fictional characters can be spirit animals, then Æon Flux is mine.

I'm not even sure what this thing is, really - isn't not a graphic novel and it's not really related to movie in any kind of direct way. It's got stills from the animated series scattered throughout, but it's basically a loose paper trail of Trevor and, anyway, it just means that my resolution to purchase the series again (the last copy I had was VHS) is all the stronger.

It's not a comic or graphic novel, but its not a novel or novella either, and it is beyond the scope and ambition and execution of any cheap companion piece, what the hell is it then? it's graphic, but not a novel, theres pictures and words, but no combination pictures (comics) as such, is it an illustrated book, its a book, its illustrated, but what sort of book is it, and are the pictures secondary to the text? is the text not a picture too? yes, the text too, is handled as visual information, ...more

This book is made up of letters, transcripts, news clippings and surveillance video screencaps about how the rivalry began between Breen Prime Minister Trevor Goodchild and Monican spy Aeon Flux. It even poses the theory that Bregna and Monica was once Bregnica before a wall went up overnight separating the two.

I got this for Christmas eons ago ( back when the full episodes were on MTV.

For fans of the original animated show. The Herodotus File is fun to read and take in visually. It's not quite a comic or graphic novel, but it's a mix of art experience and reading. Transcripts, journal entries, memos, secret "photos" that reveal a sexy story.

I learned that bad-ass as this story was, it's no match for a flooded basement that wasn't properly dried out.
(Thanks, Stacy :P)

At least I learned a valuable lesson: Rely not on friends; just yourself.

interesting exploration of the aeon flux universe with some violence and sex. It's clip book style is not something I admire.
