Life sucks for Vanessa. Her mother just died and her boyfriend is cheating on her (with her own sister!). To clear her mind, Vanessa is taking the California road-trip that she’s been dreaming about for years. Her postcard-perfect drive through old growth forests quickly turns when THE BREACH hits. A bizarre anomaly in the sky plunges California into a nightmare-world populated with strange, extra-dimensional creatures. Now Vanessa, along with Dougie, an orphaned child, and Kai, a strange, fuzzball of a beast, must fight to survive if they ever hope to make it back home. If there’s even a home to return to.

Written by Ed Brisson ( Uncanny X-Men, Ghost Rider, Old Man Logan) and illustrated by Damian Couceiro (Old Man Logan, Iron Fist, X-Force), BEYOND THE BREACH is a fantastical sci-fi road trip adventure about perseverance and finding family in unexpected places.

Review: Origins #1

Origins #1

In the future, humanity has been destroyed. A baby is born who may be the only hope. His name is David and his birth is one of science and technology, a plan to right the wrongs. Origins #1 is an intriguing first issue that is full of mystery and teasing. It’s also a frustrating debut in some ways in that the teaser text explains for more as to what’s going on and I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing.

Origins #1 is written by Clay McLeod but the series is created by Arash Amel, Lee Krieger, and Joseph Oxford. An interesting debut, it’s steeped in mystery as the issue feels like it’s mostly driven by its visuals. Chloe through a lot of narrative, speaks to David through the years hinting at his role, who he is, and what’s going on. Very little specifics are laid out other than something wants David dead. What that is exactly is unknown other than its description as “The Network”.

And that unknown is both interesting and frustrating.

The description of Origins #1 goes into far greater detail as to the world and who David is. That information is only hinted at, and even then, barely in the first issue. It’s a comic where by the time I got to the end I’m honestly unsure if I’d have felt differently about it if I had gone in with no knowledge of what it was about.

To read Origins #1 feels like being in an open-world video game where your exact next steps are unknown and you only know the general concept of the game. As a reader, I found myself trying to figure out where things were going as an initial intro cut-scene played.

The art by Jakub Rebelka is fantastic. Joined by Patricio Delpeche and letterer Jim Campbell, the design is familiar but otherworldly. It’d be easy to riff on so much of what has come before but the design here feels very unique and thought out. There’s a beauty to much of the green and overgrown foliage that belies a menace underneath. But, it’s the small details that really jump out. What’s covered by plants and by how much. How a corpse is propped up and where. Various things about the animals that have taken over. Each tell a story and hint at the mystery we’re presented.

Origins #1 is a debut where I want to explore more of the world. It definitely feels like there’s a greater concept out there and this may have been a video game adapted for comics but the debut has me intrigued. I want to come back and learn more about David and this world he’s been born into to. This is a journey I want to go on and a mystery I want to solve. But, for many, it’ll be a frustrating debut that doesn’t hook you quickly enough. For those of us who spent hours in Myst wandering around though, it’s a start we’re more than familiar with.
