Wasteland Book 7: Under the God – Antony Johnston

W07Now the religion, which has been bubbling away in the background, gets cranked up to ten. We see it from a sociological perspective embodied in an isolated community, a microcosm of all organised religion. And we toss words like Nephilim about. All this to a fanfare of Bible quotes. It’s a good plot but better now that we have Michael and Abi back – who appear to be captured by every settlement the come across on their journey.

The art is on form and some fight scenes allow a bit of frenetic composition in the panel structure. There is some good digital blurring at work too. But the wash of glossy black all over the place doesn’t match up to the soft greys that made such an impression in the early volumes.

Thumbs Up!
