Jericho Season 3 Civil War (as its titled) continues right after the television show left off. You follow Jake and Hawkins's stories in Texas and in the Allied States of America. You also follow the regular characters in Jericho, Kansas like Major Beck, the Green's, and Mayor Anderson.
The story is excellent. It is written by many of the Jericho television show writers and the artists did an superb job at making the characters appear lifelike. While the novel seems a little short (its at 150 pages, if that) the ending will leave you wanting more.
Please note, I cancelled my Amazon preorder for this item when I found out it would ship later than my local comic book store would receive it. I did not purchase this item through Amazon. My Jericho graphic novel's cover is pictured differently than the one shown on Amazon's site. I assume everything else is exactly the same.
It starts off with Jake and Hawkins in Texas with the bomb. We get to meet a new Green family member, get the backstory on John Smith, the mastermind of the Sept attacks and see the start of the Civil War. I can't wait to see what happens next!
I'm so glad that Jericho didn't get the dead show treatment - a script outline given to a novelist. The graphic novel can be used as a book of storyboards and makes it that much easier for the studios to see the potential of the Jericho story. At Comic Con 2011, we heard a TV movie was being considered.
Well, one minor quibble - I wish they had done a more colorful, not as scary cover, to be quite honest. Maybe some of the characters. Not a somber nuclear explosion. (The customer photo on top is the actual cover of the book, NOT the picture of Robert Hawkins & Jake Green). I know it sounds funny, but it gives me the creeps to have that picture on my books to read pile.
Hope we can see a movie or new TV series!
When the show ended its run, the story naturally had a less-than-stellar ending – though it was, at least, a conclusion of sorts. But thankfully (for Jericho fans, at least) the shows writers and producers got together with a couple comic companies, obtained the actors’ permissions to use their real likenesses, and created this official continuation of the series.
Jericho: Season Three – Civil War starts off exactly how the tv series ended with Jake Green and Robert Hawkins in the independent Republic of Texas with a nuclear bomb. From there the surprises and excitement keeps building as the brewing war between the successor states of the U.S.A. begins to break out in earnest and the mysterious mastermind of the September nuclear attacks on U.S. cities begins to be revealed.
After finishing this comic collection, the first thing I must say is thank you to everyone involved in getting this project done and gifting it to the show’s fans.Read more ›
Without getting too much into the plot, there were some inconsistencies with the show that bothered me. The one off the top of my head is the situation between the warring state factions. In the show the Western States battled against the government in Cheyenne, the former US Federal Government was only in control of a small area in Ohio and Texas was neutral. Texas would be a major determiner of success because both sides needed the oil. The graphic novel notably changed the dynamics between the factions and minimizes Texas' importance from the show that was a big turn off for me.
I did not find the graphic novel to be a compelling continuation of the story line and didn't even finish it.
