Injection – Warren Ellis

Injection This is a great example of science meets folklore that you would expect to find in 2000AD or in the mind of Alan Moore. It definitely has strong echoes of Planetary. It is quite a gentle ride progressing logically and unfolding through flashbacks until by the end of this volume you have the whole picture. It’s a neat premise that works to intrigue rather than entertain you.

The art is great with an incredible matt palette, strong character design and contrasting flashbacks. There are several blank backgrounds but the rest of the panels make up for it. It’s easy to follow with most frames stretching across the page.

An excellent start and a strong addition to the Ellis renaissance that began with Trees.

Thumbs Up!
