Captivating Journey into Post-Apocolyptic Civilization
Wow. For anyone out there who is a die-hard sociological and/or post-Apocolyptic scifi fan, this series is for you. An excellent rendering of what, sadly, everyone calls a 'comic book,' this translation of a 'graphic novel' is captivating. The characters are believable, which makes the scenarios believable. Most importantly, we are drawn into the times, and we have heroes to root for. Jeremiah is intelligent and thought provoking, which will no doubt be unappealing to many. No, there are no fancy special effects, so that will disappoint many also, and every now and then we run into continuity questions, but the story-lines well make up for that. Luke Perry and Malcom-Jamal Warner deserve kudos for their acting skills (and made me forget their origins), as does anyone who plays a major or minor part in this series. For anyone who likes a good, intelligent story, a good drama that keeps you on the edge of your seat and rooting for good to best evil, you will relish this series. Yes, I gave it a 9 out of 10, as that is well-deserved.
