Low, Volume 1: The Delirium of Hope based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
From the cover and story, this sounded pretty good. And it was, especially that art style. Good start.
LOW presents an amazing bond between artwork and storytelling. The aquatic environments are beautifully colored, bright indoors, dark and deep when looking out into the vast ocean. The characters are iconic and full of emotion, the creatures are monstrous and deadly. The storytelling captivates with every turn of the page. It’s a story about always having hope and moving forward. LOW follows the main character “Stel Caine” who has unbreakable hope. She is set on the idea of a place away from the sun’s harmful radiation that her people can migrate to. The problem is that everything is the problem. Earth’s surface is uninhabitable, she lacks resources and everyone seems to be running low on hope. Stel Caine is the “middle finger” to the sea of naysayers. LOW is inspiring, dangerous, painful, and ingenious.
Science-fiction comic collection about the end of a Sun This comic collection deals with one woman (Stel Caine)’s attempts to find a new world for the people of Salus. She has a husband, a son and two daughters who hunt to keep the city going. When her family are captured by the Scurvies (pirates), it is her goal to rescue them. She encounters all sorts on her quest which she follows virtually unaided by anybody It is very colourful and the drawings are original, detailed and well-conceived although not always clear. There’s plenty of violence, sex, nudity and unsavoury language as well. Quite good stuff.
