What if every single person on the planet got a genie and one wish? That is what Eight Billion Genies gives us with the latest limited series at Image Comics.
The creative team behind Curse Words, Charles Soule and Ryan Browne, is back at it again. This duo really is a match made in heaven and we see it on the pages of their new book.
Eight Billion Genies is a character study of what would happen if the eight billion people living on Earth where given one genie with one wish. Some might use this wish for stupid things right away, others a more thought out use. Whatever the case, the world would be chaos as a result.
Soule’s writing and flow is beautiful, partnered up with the amazing inking and colors from Browne make the book both visually attractive and wonderful to read. The first issue gives you a basis for the rest of the series, but also leaves you wanting badly to know what happens in issue two and beyond.
There is not much to complain about this limited series as of you, only reading the first issue so far, but the final complaint in the end could be it’s only a limited series.
Even before this book dropped on May 11, I was intrigued by the partnership of Soule and Browne after the smash success of Curse Words. It was even better after reading issue one. They make you live the book, not just read it.
Eight Billion Genies is available at you local comic book shop or read it online at ComiXology.
