Review

From the beginning of the new Fallen World series, there were some twisted versions of familiar characters introduced. Here, in the culmination of the first arc of the comic, all of the forces and factions that are sure to be a part of the Valiant Universe are thoroughly awakened in a way that promises some real excitement and intrigue in this and other Valiant titles to come.

With Fallen World, Dan Abnett has built an amazing foundation to a limitless, universe-spanning series complete with a big bad that is not only truly evil, but also a corruption of what was once a beloved character. Then he pits this creation against a defeated version of one hero and an oath braking version of another. Yeah, there are lots of cool things going on here.

Adam Pollina’s astounding artwork is epic as well, with expansive and bloody battle scenes as well as hypnotic glimpses into magic and AI realms.

The Bottom Line

Fallen World is the establishment of the 41st Century version of earth as well as a jumping on point for what will be the new Rai series, both of which look highly promising if they are even half as good as what has been seen so far.

Review: Amazon Prime’s ‘Mangrove’

Although it takes place half a century ago, Mangrove feels relatable in its political relevance and its personal narratives. Come for the story, stay for the unexpected sense of hope that it brings.
