For those unlucky enough not to be familiar with it, Jericho is the 2006-2008 television show about the aftermath of a nuclear event in the United States and its effect on a group of people in a small Kansas town.
Season Four begins with Jake Green and Robert Hawkins returning to Jericho, for which both are extremely happy. But things in the outside world are anything but peaceful. The country itself is neatly split into two rival camps by the Mississippi River; the eastern section of the country calling itself the USA, while the western states are now called the Allied States of America. While separate nations, both the USA and ASA have the same problems: food is scarce, relief aid is sporadic, lawlessness is epidemic, a plague has begun to spread, and a war with the other is looming. So while our two heroes have succeeded in their mission from Season Three, they find themselves trapped into a political plot that could reveal the villains behind the September nuclear bombings, topple a government, start a revolution, and get everyone they care about killed!
Like the previous comic collection, Jericho: Season Four is plotted by the creative team behind the television series. This consistence in writing remains the strong point of this collection, as the story continues without any deviation from the previous plot lines with all the familiar characters included in the goings-on in Jericho. And while the tone of the story changes a bit, it is still 100% Jericho with several lingering mysteries beginning to be answered.
There were a couple of problems with this collection, however.
One, the artwork was not a strong point.Read more ›
I love that the plot action is set mainly in the town of Jericho. I think the addition of the double agent is perfect and is a great way to bring the A.S.A. into Jericho.
i want to know what happens after Valenti addresses the nation from Jericho!
Hurry up and bring us Jericho: Season 5
I haven't read a lot of graphic novels before this one, but if you love the TV show Jericho like I do, then you should definitely check this book out. I was pleasantly surprised. The illustrations are great and the plot is a continuation of the two TV seasons as well as one previous graphic novel. Nice to see the cult phenomenon in a different medium.
Net Galley Feedback
My husband and I enjoyed the books, although I was confused at times with characters who looked similar. It was a challenge to tell them apart in their looks. It was easy to recognize the familiar characters from the TV series, but new characters were a little hard to tell the difference between.
I would recommend Season 3 and 4 books to give Jericho fans a little more information. But you're still not going to get closure.
Jake and Hawkins are happy to be back in Jericho, but all is not peaceful. There is a new man in town who may know more than he is letting people know. There are big military buildups and trust issues, and lots of conversations in kitchens, but the whole thing feels like a setup for further graphic novels. Things move forward, but it's not a complete story arc, nor even what I would call a TV "season." The length and content don't justify calling it that. To the writers credit, there are a lot of characters to track and write and carry forward so perhaps I'm being too nit-picky.
The art does change styles and sometimes it seems like badly rotoscoped versions of the characters with weird body proportions. It would be nice to have a more consistent approach to the art instead of changing artists every issue.
I was given a review copy of this graphic novel by Diamond Book Distributors and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
