Transhuman – Comic Wednesday

19 Jun

ImageFor comics wednesday we’re looking at writer Jonathan Hickman and artist JM Ringuet’s darkly humorous tale of genetic lunacy, Transhuman (available as Trade Paperback from Image Comics). It’s told in a wonderfully intuitive mockumentary style, sort of similar to Christopher Guest appropriating JG Ballard and Phil K Dick.

This is the book that put Hickman on the map as an incredibly talented visual narrative storyteller and if you’ve read any of his Marvel titles, I’m sure you’d agree.

Also, Manhattan Projects #12 is available. Feynman gets all spider monkey drone and as a result, Einstein gets all Scarface shower scene on the traitor.
