Jonathan Hickman is a weird guy. His imagination is the stuff of nightmares and crazy algorithms. All that being said, when he isn't too over the top, he's pretty remarkable. Here, he creates a completely new idea about cultism and the power of money. Its strange, bold, and confusing at times but confusing in a good way as the reader and the main protagonist are trying to reveal this insane world's secrets. The art by Tomm Coker is superb. He has never been a favorite of mine but I think his work here has really evolved. Overall, the book is good but not clear enough to be great.
Financial crashes explained – the truth at last? I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This comic book collection deals with various financial crashes (which does not sound very exciting, I'm sure) but we discover that supernatural/alien elements are involved in keeping the wealthiest firms buoyant. The ruling families are often at loggerheads and murder is committed. As one has come to expect from Jonathan Hickman, the atmosphere is dark, laden with threat and violence. It is thoroughly engaging, if a bit long, and well-illustrated with all sorts of nebulous characters. It is sometimes difficult to remember who is who but, in the end, it doesn't really matter. Reminiscent of much of his other work, it is still interesting and well-written. Another volume will follow.
