Review: Cryptocracy #6

cryptocracy-6The Mars family base is under attack, besieged by Hum and his army of deadly cryptids. To save his people in this epic battle, Grahame must step forward as a leader, putting everything he cares about on the line to salvage the broken remains of the cryptocracy.

Things hit a stalemate in Cryptocracy #6 as the epic battle ends, with casualties on both sides. Yet something tells me this is far from the end of this series overall and that writer Van Jensen has more to come. The ending is a clear indication that more is to come, as questions still remain unanswered. Hopefully, the wait won’t be long for more issues.

The art by Pete Woods brings the brutality of battle to the forefront. The issue brings a cornucopia of cryptids on both sides, as they wage war on each other. While the explosive firefights are well done, the ending scene is a curious sight. It manages to tell one main thing, more is to come.

Review: Cryptocracy #5

297841

In the wake of tragedy, Grahame makes a desperate gamble for leadership of the Mars Family. But to do so, he must battle with his stepsister Temple for the Spear of Mars. Elsewhere, Bela’s document leak has brought her fame and attention, but she begins to question the motives of her new ally, Hum. Also: The Lizard Men attack!

Cryptocracy #5 finally reveals who Hum works for, a man who is supposed to be dead, so it’s a nice twist. And, if that isn’t enough another odd sub-human species is revealed in the issue. And that’s through their attack on Bela, the one women Hum trusted. Yet there is something she learns as everything goes wrong. What starts with murder, ends with a bang from writer Van Jensen.

While much has changed in the art style of Pete Woods, the addition of the lizard men was an interesting sight. While they do appear in the background of the cover art, they have a slightly different appearance in the issue which is an interesting and noticeable thing.

Review: Cryptocracy #3

29782

The Nine Prophecies foretell a great cataclysm and the end of the age of the Nine Families that secretly rule the world. The first has come true, and now the mysterious and deadly Hum aims to fulfill the others. Agent Grahame is desperate to prove that Hum is just a man—a man who can be killed. Elsewhere, radio host Bela is drawn into the fight for the fate of the world as she learns some of the Families’ long-hidden secrets.

Two prophecies have now been fulfilled. Leaving everyone wondering how much longer the families have before all nine have been defeated. Writer Van Jensen gives us something wild at the end of the issue, but I won’t spoil it. It’s best to see this for yourself. Each issue leaves the reader eager for more issues, as more and more of this world and the conspiracy is revealed.

The cover is very eye-catching and hopefully will attract more readers of those who have ignored past issues. The art by Pete Woods manages to amplify the power of the beings. The cover is a perfect example of that, it just screams power.
