Review: Adam.3 #1
Award-winning writer/artist Scott Kolins premieres his first original comic book creation: Adam.3! A man born into a futuristic island utopia fights to save his troubled family as terrifying visions of a monstrous doom foretell the end to his Eden! Can Adam and his family survive S.E.E.D.S.?
Scott Kolins’ Adam.3 #1 is interesting to say the least. The world reminds me some of the Savage Land, from Marvel’s X-Men comics, just without the dinosaurs. However there is no lack of large animals. Published by Dark Horse Comics, the story has a various elements within it. While it has a mix of science fiction meets Tarzan meets an action adventure story. It has no lack of action and is defiantly worth picking up.
The story and the setting blend together well, and complement each other wonderfully. While the backstory of the story may not make a large appearance, it has subtle hints. Hopefully it will be explored fully in the issues to come.
The colorful art work, blends with story well. It gives the story a certain level of realism, into a world of pure imagination. The characters dress very vibrantly, and stand out from their earth like world.
It may not be traditional science fiction, but that is where it stands out. The slight mix of superhero elements mixed in with a world of giant animals, allows this to be to read for teens and adults as well. It could be argued that is appropriate for children as well, but there are some scenes of a sensual nature. That eliminates the possibility of it being for children.
