Synopsis: Set in near-future San Francisco. Humans have mastered space travel and interspecies genetic engineering. Governments are in shambles, and corporations operate as nation-states with paid militia. Lisa, a scientist researching ground-breaking – and potentially world-ending – technology, has attracted the attention of a malevolent corporate tyrant. Daniel, along with his GMO animal hybrid guardians, fights to save Lisa and prevent global genocide.
Thoughts: Genesis II is amazing. I love, love, love this graphic novel. Before I read Genesis II, I actually never read a graphic novel from start to finish. However, now that I read my first graphic novel, I want to read more. I really enjoyed how Allen Ling and Christian Boe created such interesting and creative characters. For example, I love how Ozzie Musk over comes his fear of flying to save the day. I also liked how Christian Boe drew such creative, fantastic characters and scenery. Another thing that made me impressed about this graphic novel is how everything from the future seems probable. For example, there are drones flying every where and there is a colony started by Elon Musk on Mars. Overall, I love, love, love, this amazing, creative, interesting graphic novel.
NOTE: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review. All thoughts are my own.
