Review: Devolution #2
The road to salvation is lined with Nazi hillbillies and Neanderthals. Raja finds that trusting people is a bad idea. Check out the thrilling new series that Rick Remender describes as “a heavy dose of high-octane action, character drama, a world of strange reverse mutations, and social commentary – as we follow the last tribe of humans inoculated from the devolution agent as they set out on a desperate journey to try to find a way to re-evolve life on Earth.
In the explosive second issue of Devolution, a lot happens, yet at the same time very little does too. Now that Raja is captured by Nazi hillbillies, and is placed in its leader dungeon to be used. Of course that doesn’t last as she manages a daring escape/rescue with a little help. As she escapes from bondage, an explosive firefight ensues.
Honestly I love how the art by Jonathan Wayshak manages to capture the determination of Raja and her will to escape. As well simultaneously capturing the violence, action, and flow of the story. Even the realism of the characters, while maintaining the gritty violence of a world where humanity has changed is still impressive to see.
