Most often in comic books, story is sacrificed for artwork and vice-versa. In Masamune Shirow's world of Appleseed, both are blended perfectly. With attention to detail in both writing and character/mecha design, this book brings the complexities of a Clancy novel into the world of comic books. Set in the future after WWIII, Duenan Knute and her cyborg mentor, Briareos, are found living in the badlands and invited to live in a new city-state, Olympus. At first, the city seems to be a near-paradise, but something sinister lurks underneath the pristine exterior. Fans of espionage, intrigue, action and mechanics will definitely enjoy Appleseed: The Promethean Challenge and it's subsequent volumesWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
