About the Author

Richard Marazano was born in 1971. He is a bulimic; a consumer of mass culture when not working (as rare as such moments are); as a writer, a collaborator and genre masher; as an artist, a hyper-realist and a perfectionist. He studied natural science and astrophysics before getting into comics as a writer and illustrator.

You'll probably notice Genetiks' lush and dynamic artwork first. It's hard not to. Jean-Michel Ponzio's use of 3D design, photorealism, and rotoscoping builds upon writer Richard Marazano's initial layouts to fuel this sci-fi tale along like a movie, bringing the story sexily to life.

Genetiks is the name of the company that protagonist Thomas Hale works for. Hale has given over his entire DNA code to Genetiks, making him the ultimate "company man." It's a classic sci-fi concept: A company promises to help propel humanity into a pristine, wonderful new future, but there are people who may get hurt along the way to building that future. Hale begins suspecting something sinister is going on at his company, and when he investigates more deeply, he finds quite disturbing things.

He probes deeper, along with some allies, to get to the truth, but he is being watched and monitored the entire time. This leads to a classic hero-on-the-run storyline...quite fun if you like that sort of thing.

This is just the first volume, so readers may be surprised at the ending. But it has me looking forward to more.

I just finished reading Genetiks tonight. It was a book I picked up on a whim at my local comic bookstore since the art was great and the premise was interesting. The story takes a few pages to really get into- once that happens, you're going to be shocked at how quickly it reads. I was disappointed to find myself at the last page. The story follows a young scientist who becomes the "property" of the company he works for. Of course, all is not as it seems on the surface and he quickly learns the company doesn't want him for HIS research. Hopefully, the next volume comes quickly. Though, my local guy said it's a series that is translated from French, so it may be awhile. Highly recommended.

I recently received a box of relatively new TPBs and graphic novels from Archaia Entertainment for possible review. My youngest son, Vinnie, already review blogged one of them. This graphic novel is one that I decided to read & review blog on.

This graphic novel is 'Genetiks - Volume 1'.

What is it about? Here's the publisher's promo on that:

"What happens to Thomas Hale when the company he works for cracks his genetic code?

Genetiks is a pharmaceutical company on the cutting edge of biological science. Thomas Hale is one of thousands of employees in the Genetiks' labs. Like his colleagues, he had agreed to give a drop of blood to his employers; a drop of blood that will allow the researchers at the company he works for to decode his entire genome. As the drop of blood is the property of Genetiks, Thomas will become, in effect, the first man to be privately owned by the corporation he works for."

So what's 'My Take' on this book?

The front cover to this book, which is rectangular in format, has a good intriguing cover. Just enough to make you want to open the first page.

The inside front cover has the credits & other info necessary to present the book to its possible readership. However, no introduction is shown as to what the book is about.

The 'splash page' is used... And the next page goes right into the story.

I found myself liking the artstyle right away, and it took a few pages for me to get into the storyline.

The artwork is 'realistic' in style, and it meshed very well with the storyline.

There is a final page, 'About The Authors', but that is all that is shown other than the storyline / art for this book.
