I quite enjoyed this. The artwork was almost always effective and helped tell the story and move it along. The “mature reader” suggestion is well-earned as it is brutal at times, nor does it ever flinch from the things humans do.

Eric survives a freak accident but manifests powers and helps with the rescue and continues to be a hero. But then he isn’t so careful of collateral damage while doing good; then he’s not at all good and believing he’s a god. He becomes a god-like force of joyful destruction and then ….

Redemption? Maybe; maybe not.

Highly recommended. All of the main characters develop complex motivations and change dramatically over the course of the story.

A really interesting one-off comic. Great art work, interesting story, lots of action, and neat characters. However, don't get me wrong, I love violent and bloody graphic novels (the American Vampire series, baltimore: the plague ships, the walking dead, the vikings series, etc.) but even I found some of the violence so over the top it took away from the emotional impact of the book. Plus, the main character that gets the powers just gets so weird with little explanation that it is hard to get into the story. But overall, a cool book. If you like Ex Machina you might like this.
