The nefarious Reptoids, defeated and relinquished to hidden outskirts away from the Northern Kingdom, abscond with the human race’s final hope for survival—the last of their children. Motro convinces the city’s elders to sacrifice themselves to reveal the Reptoids’ location so the children may still be rescued, but they’re met with a horrifying discovery. Motro, with great warriors and a squadron of tri-tankerbeasts at his side, must decide what it means to save humanity when faced with extinction or a grisly new future.

Review: Motro #1

motro-1-coverMotro #1 by Ulises Fariñas is the first entry of the story that spans more than century. The story follows the reclusive Motro’s life as he struggles coming-of-age with superhuman abilities, the death of his father, and deals with the consequences of his actions. The story is set against the intricate and beautiful fantasy world built by Fariñas that includes mechanical Golems, asexual slave dwarves, and ghosts that feed off the emotional events that take place. The first issue dives into Motro’s wild and surreal coming-of-age and introduces the enormity of the world he finds himself alone in.

Motro #1 is an interesting first issue that throws us into this new world with little explanation of it. There’s vehicles which seem to talk and a Mad Max vibe about it all, but the history and what’s going on is left to be discovered down the road.

That aspect is actually a lot of fun due to the fact that things seem to just happen, catching readers off-guard. Comments are made that tease a rich backstory, but we the readers are left to imagine exactly what that is. There’s an excitement about that and I found myself smiling as more and more is revealed along the way.

Fariñas art with Ryan Hill‘s colors has a Heavy Metal vibe about it. The world is interesting and the details for every character, vehicle, and building feel like each tells a story about what has happened. There’s also some great humor with the vehicles who talk but with images as opposed to words. That adds small, entertaining details that get you to chuckle throughout.

I still have no idea where this series is going or what to expect, but I’m interested in seeing where it’s all going and what Fariñas has in store.
