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.

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.Read more ›
