Looking for a comic book that combines Max Max: Fury Road-style action with the mutated horror of Annihilation? Well, look no further than Almighty #1. This double-length issue is packed with 38-pages of story and no ads, all for the regular price of just $3.99!
Written by Edward Laroche (The Warning) and colored by Brad Simpson, this original sci-fi/fantasy epic will take you on an adventure set in a third world America ravaged by economic collapse, anarcho-warfare, and a mysterious environmental disaster contained behind a massive wall.
Almighty #1 follows the story of a girl who has been abducted and the killer hired to find her and bring her home. The story starts off with an intense car chase where we quickly learn that our protagonist can not only drive like a pro but also shoot like one as well.
We then get to see some of the characters that inhabit this world such as a criminal gang as they are trying to track down our protagonist. But there is more to this story than meets the eye as we soon learn that something much bigger is at play here and our protagonist may be more involved than expected. All in all, it is an exciting storyline that keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish!
The artwork in Almighty #1 was nothing short of spectacular. Laroche did an amazing job creating realistic designs for all of the characters in this world while also staying true to his vision for this third world America he created. Simpson’s coloring choices were also spot on and really helped bring these characters to life with vibrant colors that complemented each scene perfectly. All together, these two artists created an immersive world full of mystery, intrigue, and excitement that any comic book fan would love to explore!
