It wasn't necessarily bad I guess, just really uninspired and the same old plot we've seen time and time again. If there were more volumes they might have been able to work it into some more interesting and original but as it is, it's just pretty boring. Also while the art is pretty, it's often hard to make out what is happening. I'm sure this is on purpose and is supposed to enhance the 'mood' or whatever but like shaky-cam in movies, I just find it annoying.
Pretty water colors are juxtaposed with the typical comic-book style onomatiopeics in Andrew Cosby's, Damn Nation! Alongside this bizarre visual palette is an insipidly vague and irritatingly understated narrative which is embryonic at best and skeletal at best.
Unlike most (comic) books, I actually bothered to read the introduction and was pleasantly surprised to learn that Cosby was inspired by one of my favorite moves of all time, Alien! I too am a huge fan of the 1979 Ridley Scott classic and ...more

This is one of my favourite Dark Horse gems that at some point had been in development to be adapted into film, but despite having begun scripting, budgeting and casting as far back as 2009, as far as I know this production is still in doubt.

I actually rather enjoyed this story as it went past the usual post-apocalypse events and showed a bit of how the rest of the world would respond to such events and how a change in political power and political greed can come into play. The illustrations are suitably dark and foreboding and add a sense of anticipation and dread to the story and the finale is superb, leaving the reading hanging as to what is to come as all is not as straight forward as it seems.
Feels very much like 30 Days of Night or The Strain. The plot is rather basic and one that we've read or seen before. The art was dark and kind of scratchy and inconsistent at times, which made the whole thing rather hard to get into. Unfortunately this book didn't scare me or really do much at all for me.
