Format: Paperback
A rollicking first effort from Adam Mansbach (Go the F**k to Sleep, The End of the Jews) and newcomer artist Owen Brozman. "Nature of the Beast" presents a pulpy and pop-culture filled roller coaster of a story filled with fistfights, alien invasions, gator wrasslin', Thunderdome-style man vs. beast wars, and subtle reality-era social commentary. Mansbach's story, which rarely pauses for breath, is clever and directly filtered through our "watch anything" social paradigm. He's a multi genre talent and makes you want a sequel ASAP. Second and third readings offer hidden "easter eggs" throughout Brozman's artwork; his masculine and realistic style is laden with small touches that lend favorable comparison to the work of Tony Moore (The Exterminators) and Wes Abbott (The Amory Wars), among others - he looks like a talent to watch in coming years and I'll eagerly wait for his next work. High recommendation for anyone who likes a "Mad Max" end-of-the-world story, but updated for the era of UFC and "Survivor" in which we live!

Format: Paperback
Good graphics. Average sci-fi comic. Some topical comment, but surprisingly dis-jointed, with jarring transitions between a number of scenes. Does not make me want to continue the journey.

Format: Kindle Edition
Nature of the Beast is an awesome graphic novel. The story is bloody, bizarre, and full of action, with just the right amount of political commentary to keep it smart. With Earth on the brink of extinction because of aliens that plan on destroying it, a power-hungry CEO tycoon creates a gladiator-like fight between ferocious beasts and just as ferocious humans. The last one living will be Earth's most powerful warrior, who will hopefully combat the aliens. The beasts battle (and suffer) to thousands of cheering fans (think reality TV) while plagued with advertisements (the shark's skin is covered with them). The illustrations are fantastic too.

The best part was that I got it on my kindle fire through the new panel view technology, with was great. I'm looking forward to downloading more graphic novels in the future.
