Echo was a 30 issue series, written and drawn by Terry Moore, that started in March 2008. The collected edition was released in August, 2011.

Julie Martin, a photographer with a lot of personal problems, is taking some nature pictures when a large explosion occurs above her. Small drops of a strange substance rain down on her, changing her and her life and dwarfing her initial problems. The pelts form a metallic plate covering portions of her body. She develops powerful abilities. Julie wasn't the only person affected, though. A homeless man also is impacted by the strange debris. He becomes a threat and has a rather bizarre story of his own.

The debris is the result of an experiment conducted by HeNRI (Heitzer Nuclear Research Institute), a private corporation with defense contracts. HeNRI wants their property back and their secrets to remain secrets, so they hire a specialist to hunt Julie down. Julie is on the run. She received aide from a Park Ranger that also witnessed the explosion. A connection between the explosion and the park ranger is revealed, as the story progresses.

Terry Moore is best known for his long running series, Strangers in Paradise. Echo shows that he is no one trick pony. It's a very different style of story, but just as well told. Where SIP was a character driven book with a strong supporting story, Echo is a story driven book with strong characters. It's also a shift in genre. Echo is a science fiction story, carrying the well established theme of fear of mankind producing technology that it isn't ready to handle. Each chapter of the book begins with a quote reflecting that theme, such as Einstein's "Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal.

I have been reading comics for a while. If you look through my review page, I've left reviews on a good many of the collected editions. But this book.....it's just something else. At first I was thrown off by the rather basic drawing style, but within 1 page I was hooked. The story is so gripping, so well told, so absolutely FUN that I just couldn't put it down. It's a 600 page monolith I finished in just 1 sit (which took me about 6 hours), and I have no regrets at all. It filled everything I want in a story - believable characters, realistic setting with a single science fiction wrench thrown in, a constantly evolving story, and a sense of "there is more." What I mean by this last part is that author Terry Moore constantly throws in little extra bits of story, intrigue, etc, that simply are not explained - don't worry, it doesn't drive you insane, these just make you think a bit more.

Overall, just get this collected edition. It was a fantastic read, and I am beyond excited that it is being turned into a (hopefully good) movie.

Format: Paperback
Terry Moore began Echo as an independent comic series in 2008, and over the course of 30 issues and three years, he created what is one of the best sci-fi comics of all time, a truly human, utterly fascinating, action-packed adventure. It's a brilliant look at scientific exploration combined with human ambition (and all the foibles that contains).

It begins with a young scientist named Annie field-testing a highly classified new flying battle suit she has helped create. It would be a powerful weapon for the United States, and a highly profitable piece of machinery as well, but unfortunately, Annie is betrayed by the people she trusted, and both she and the suit are destroyed. In the expansive park below the sky the suit is being tested in are two unsuspecting strangers -- one a homeless man and the other a young woman going through several emotional upheavals. Julie is broke, going through a tumultuous divorce, and trying desperately to help her sister (who has had a mental break with reality after witnessing her husband and children being killed). All of this has taken its toll on Julie, who is merely trying to escape to the desert to take some photographs when remnants from the battle suit begin to rain down on her, and inexplicably attach and adhere themselves to her skin.

From there begins a sprawling epic, one that traverses conspiracies, government cover-ups, a frantic hunt for Julie by military and federal agents and trained assassins, and much, much more.

Tired of stories that just kept going,and going never actually going anywhere? Here is your answer Terry Moore's Echo. A complete story with a beginning, middle, and end in one complete trade. Not since Bone: One volume Edition that i enjoy a story like did Echo: The Complete Edition.

The art is refreshing--especially in this world of silicone and testosterone-riddled heroes. I've never seen a graphic novelist draw women better than Terry Moore, and few writers write women better. Terry Moore's characters are real and flawed and complicated, and, dammit, down-right fascinating! What happens to them matters. The writing is top-notch and the plot just keeps you turning those pages. I've read this series through at least three times now, and I'm ready to go back for more.
