This is far from being a phenomenal book full of innovative ideas, but the pacing, the narration and the visual storytelling are so good that this post-apocalyptic title well deserves the shot I've given. At the center of the book there's the unusual relationship between Gus, apparently the first of a series of children with animal tracts born after a cataclysmatic event killed the majority of the human population, and Clint Eastwood... er Mr. Jepperd, his hulking savior, relationship developed while the two are on the road towards the safe haven for hybrid children called "The Preserve".
Since recently good Vertigo ongoing series (at least from my P.O.V.) like Air and Unknown Soldier were cancelled due to low sales, with, fortunately, the exception of Scalped, SUPPORT this book instead of wasting time with another worthless multipart superhero crossover. Only an handful of other comic books have characters as well developed as this one.
