Marjorie Liu's take on on the NYX series. This is the 6 part mini series with art by Kalman Andrasofszky. It doesn't quite deliver enough action for a comic book in this genre. In the end the plot is way to slim for a six parter. There are some decent characters to work with though and their interaction is well written. The book does succeed in giving us believable characters, dealing with mutations that are as much a danger to their owners as anybody else. The visuals are also good. Character designs are excellent and well thought through. I can't decide whether I like Andrasofszky's blood spatter technique though. Whenever he depicts blood he applies it to the finished artwork by flicking or smearing red on the panels. It sort of stands out as being on the page rather than in the picture. And then I think that if you walked into a room with blood everywhere - well it probably would jump to the front of your vision through the shock alone. Interesting.
