Review: Evolution #1

Human evolution has taken millions of years to get to this stage. But next week, we become something new. Around the world, humanity is undergoing rapid and unpredictable changes, and only three individuals seem to notice that their world is being reborn. But what can they do about it?

Evolution #1 is credited a whole slew of writers, all talented in various ways. James Asmus, Joe Keatinge, Christopher Sebela, and Joshua Williamson have teamed together for this debut over-sized issue that feels like a sci-fi horror series partially due to the fantastic art by Joe Infurnari.

The story is a bunch of short vignettes setting up what’s going on, which appears to be rapid evolution to meet the needs of individuals or reaction to what’s going on. Why is this happening? We don’t know. How wide spread is this? We don’t know. But, the variation of everything is interesting in that we have features that feel both helpful (gills) and some not so much.

The mystery of it all is the driving factor… along with the art.

I love Infurnari’s art and this feels like a horror take on his work in The Bunker from Oni Press. I’m not quite sure how to exactly describe the style but there’s a grittiness and dirtiness about it that is perfect for both horror and science fiction. And Infurnari delivers a global cast that all look varied and unique. There’s a lot of different characters and locations and it all looks cohesive and unique at the same time. Add in each mutation that at times borders on horror. There’s a great balance of using shadows to hide it to let our imagination run wild and showing us what’s going on. The lettering for the issue too ads to that horror aspect with a style that looks shaky in a way that enhances the tone of the comic.

I have no idea where this is going but I’m on board and what’s set up is an intriguing concept. While it’s not unique it is done in a way that teases the mystery and ups the anticipation of what’s to come.
