Review: Alan Dracon #1


Alan is just a bodyguard trying to make a living. But this is the future, and to survive Alan Dracon must deal with high-tech industrial moguls, genetically modified organisms… and seductive corporates. And most of them want him dead.

Alan Dracon is action and adventure in the not-so-near future brought to you by Stefano Martino.

Alan Dracon is the dear creation of Italian artist Stefano Martino, who worked on comic series such as Doctor Who, Warlord of Mars, Catwoman and George R.R. Martin’s Doorways. He is working on the European market on titles as Nosferatu and Oracle, but he never forgot his creator-owned sci-fi series Alan Dracon.

There is something almost 90’ish about this series. Evil corporations, pseudo-science, murder , and big monsters, what’s not to love. The only thing missing is comically large shoulder pads, ha. However the story is good, and amusing at times.  Along with having some great action scenes.

The black and white style is great, helping to bolster some of the darker scenes. While lessening the darkness, of some of the more humorous scenes. Even the action scenes seem to use the monochrome color-scheme to its advantage.
