The Rundown: In a dystopian future, the Earth itself is the enemy to the last living human.

In a dystopian future, there are no human beings and nature has taken over the cities. A lone figure walks through the devastation until it comes upon what it is looking for. After taking what it needs, the being crafts a new human. The last human on planet Earth.

Years later, David is a grown man walking through the blighted world with his companion Chloe. They discover the dangers of the planet and how those dangers are geared to find and destroy any human life. With things getting worse and forces actively searching for him, David decides that it is time for him to begin the plan they’ve been working on for years. A plan that hopefully, will bring humanity back.

The Story: The story has a familiar narrative, but it is an interesting one. The plot is dense and the characters are interesting in both their motivations and their struggles. I didn’t get much of a sense of the prevailing mystery of the series, but the story does hold my curiosity about what will happen with David as well as the questions I have about Chloe and the events that shaped the world of the story.

The Art: Jakub Rebelka does some great work with the art in this first issue. The style is engaging and there are some beautifully detailed panels throughout.
