Review: The Tomorrows TPB

28429

The future: Art is illegal. Everything everyone ever posted online has been weaponized against them. The reign of the Corporation is quickly becoming as absolute as it is brutal—unless the Tomorrows can stop it. Artists, terrorists, they fight with explosives, they fight with ideas, they fight to reclaim the future we sold. This trade paperback collects issues #1–#6 of the series.

Anarchistic nihilist cyberpunk nirvana is probably the best words to describe The Tomorrows. Despite the nihilistic outlook this book possesses, there is still hope through it all. It manages to blend in this almost transhumanism idealism with a dimensional jumping concept. The only thing somehow missing is a fitting soundtrack to capture the atmosphere of the book as you read it.

The six artistist featured in this book manage to bring their own sense of style to each of their sections. The art helps to make some of the stranger things that happen in the story shine. I’m curious to know if that was originally planned to switch artists with each individual issue released. Whatever the case it worked out well as the art throughout is superb.
