Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Adult/High School-Hounded continues the "Negation" tradition of clever, high-stakes storytelling. De facto leader Kaine and his archenemy Komptin end up on a quarantined world, and the spotlight turns to some of the secondary characters, like Atlantean Corrin, who is finally persuaded that the situation is not a dream, and sigil-bearer Westin and the mysterious Lizard Lady, who team up to get some black-market technology to rescue Kaine. The art is detailed and colorful, with imaginative aliens and a solid sense of place, from various home worlds to futuristic cities and ships. For what's happening back on Earth with the remaining Atlanteans, turn to Chaos Reborn. Two mysterious strangers arrive and cause havoc, claiming that they have been instructed to "toughen up" the group. While they fight cowboys and Incans, the warrior Aristophanes prepares to betray them by awakening four other Atlanteans. Then, the group is splintered as Galvan sides with Aristophanes, Danik drags Capricia off for her mysterious destiny that involves getting pregnant, the alien beast Thraxis fights off Negation hordes, and the remainder of the group is exiled to San Angeles, the city that covers California. To top it all off, Terra Cognito, the company that was running Earth as a theme park and was chased off by the Negation, returns to reclaim its investment. The art is as good as that in Hounded, and the two titles complement one another well.-Susan Salpini, Fairfax County Public Schools, VA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Negation Volume 3: Hounded

    Let's get this out of the way first: The Negation is without a doubt in my mind the best piece of comic book literature ever written. Tony Bedard balances a cast of more than 2 dozen seamlessly and at no point do you feel like characters are slipping into the background.
    As a matter of fact somehow he does the impossible by developing all the characters in the book in depth with only the two years he was given for the book.

    The story is about a being named Charon who controls an entire universe (The Negation). With his thirst for dominance still unquenched he discovers our universe and decides to conquer it aswell. To do so he kidnaps 100 beings from different worlds to experiment on them and test them for weaknesses. These 100 prisoners range in power and ability. Some, are nothing more than human, like the tired war veteran Obregon Kaine while the god-like Evinlea has the power to raze a planet.
    Battered and on the run from an entire universe, this group of refugees must go to whatever means neccessary to survive... The problem? Most of them would just as soon kill one another than work with them.

    Negation's third trade suits the name Hounded since it brings into play Komptin's Kalaman Retriever, which is pretty much a giant alien dog. When Kaine finds himself trapped on a dangerous world with his former captor, Komptin he realizes they must work together in order to stay alive. Will the be able to though? Can Komptin put aside all the hate he feels for his rival or will this be the death of both of them?
