Review: The Rook Volume 1 TPB


The Rook is back! Bill DuBay’s time-traveling adventure comic returns, penned and illustrated by comics masters Steven Grant and Paul Gulacy! Restin Dane is ready for action—anyplace, anytime!

Writer Steven Grant‘s The Rook is a solid mix of action and sci-fi. Along with that it’s an interesting view of the origins of  H.G. Well’s The Time Machine. While not the most traditional idea of time travel, it is an intriguing read. The cliffhanger ending makes one wonder what will happen next.

The art work by Paul Gulacy is elegant as it manages to blend post-apocalyptic environments, modern times, and Victorian England. It does that along with bringing a subtle element of steam-punk, and historical figures. I will admit the appearance of the Morlocks is creepy, and monstrous.
