Everybody’s getting sick, and are we sick of it yet? Are we there yet?

Okay, wait a minute, it’s IDW’s Pandemica #1, and it’s catching on. As we read along, we have a sinking and sickening feeling that there is a chemical genocide program underfoot. Bad guys are dumping poison into water supplies of the targeted populations, worldwide.

It’s quite a unique concept, full of drama, politics, and horror. Story is by Jonathan Maberry, with art by Alex Sanchez, and colours by Jay Fotos.

I liked this book. It is intelligently written, with well-choreographed artwork. The art is gritty and eccentric but still based on a reality (ie: not cartoony). The colour is appropriate, muted and atmospheric. If you are looking for dramatic, thrilling subterfuge, this could be your ticket to an enjoyable, pulse-altering adventure!

IDW, Pandemica #1, $3.99 for 22 pages of content. Mature

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
