This was interesting. Ever wonder who the little girl Max keeps seeing, how Furiosa helped the Wives escape, how Nux became a warboy and of course how Immortan Joe found the Citadel? These story arcs answer that. Though I would of liked it to see as a movie but comic book form is okay too. Love that cover. For the most part, these were okay, my favorite probably Max's story. The art work at first I wasn't sure about, but the more I breezed through this, the more I found it fit the tone the comic was going for. If you're a fan of the Mad Max series and the movies, then you might like this. After reading this, it does make me want to see the movies again.
This prequel was picked up on a whim and its pretty good. I have yet to see the movie but didn't need help figuring out the who's and why's. There are three stories here and they are all good, with the highlight being the Furiosa tale. The art, except for the tale end was dark and gritty and made the terrible landscape come to life. For being a licensed property, this was definitely a pleasant surprise.
