Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this strange, post-apocalyptic birth story, a pregnant woman sees her husband fry during the nuclear flash before she manages to escape on a train with other survivors. The group travels through the wreckage of a bleak world looking for food, shelter and a suitable place to stop the train. Along the way, the passengers overcome a host of chilling obstacles, the least of which is the woman's complicated childbirth. Understandably depressed, the woman is ambivalent about her baby, unable to reconcile the new life of her child with the fast approaching death of the world. Any symbolic connection between the train traveling through the refuse of a planet and a child leaving the womb is lost in too many scenes of fire, destruction and mounting series of wicked dreams. Bergin's dark artwork aptly illustrates the desperation at the end of the world, with appropriately apocalyptic red and brown overtones evoking blood and fire. With a suggested soundtrack for readers, this rarely breaks out of it's pretentious vision, but it is a valiant try.

Format: Paperback
This is a landmark achievement for both fiction and art. John Bergin gone above and beyond what the graphic novel has accomplished as to date. Bergin has created a horrible, nightmarish vision that you will not be able to take your eyes off of. Moving. Touching. Horrible. Beautiful.

John Bergin uses short phrases and concrete words to narrate his lurid illustrations. From Inside describes an apocolyptic world, with little or no hope. This graphic novel is superbly done. It made me cry.

I had an autographed edition of this amazing book when I was in my first year of college. Was a bit too trusting when it came to loaning it out.
( EVERYONE wanted to borrow it...) Never had it returned, effecting my sleep state so I finally found this copy. Bizzare and dark but impossible to put down. Hi John Bergin!!! It's me!!! Freddy Ross!!!

I bought this book rather coincidentally, mostly because it had pictures of a hopelessly lost world, just the kind I needed for my RPG game at the time. When I sat down to read the story, I found that I liked it as well. The story takes on the form of a trainride through a barren landscape, vast and mostly lifeless. Maybe I put to much into it, but I felt as though it also took me on a journey through various aspects of human life, and human history, with a pesimistic outlook on the future. The focus of the story is a pregnant woman who has lost her husband. She is on the train and thinking a lot on her pregnancy and situation in general. The train is run by an engineer crew, but all the passengers help out from time to time. It is hard for me not to see the crew as a symbol of modern science, and the passengers as the ugly, frightened, opportunistic mass following their lead, which in the end proves to be very shortsighted indeed. The woman is for me a picture of the individual, the self, with all its uncertainties, problems, paradoxes and ambiguities, on its way through life. Q-word: NO LEAD. The book is very graphic, newborn-children-on-a-pitchfork kind of graphic, so be warned.
