The Evolution Starts Here appears to be the 2nd graphic novel in a series, collecting books published under prior and separate cover. Fortunately, there is sufficient flashback so that those of us who have not read (or in my case, even heard of) the earlier book will not be lost due to that omission.
I found the overall story to be enjoyable, easy to follow, and a nice salute to the Marvel Universe – which is what I've come to expect when Karl Kesel is at the helm. Long time readers will appreciate that when Super Apes are involved, it should not be a surprise that the Red Ghost would make an appearance. Toss in a tip of the hat, although not an actual appearance, to the High Evolutionary, and the only regret is that Kesel didn't manage to find a spot for Gorr, the Golden Gorilla in his tale. (Long-time Fantastic Four watchers may remember Gorr from his appearances in that comic back in the mid-70s.)
A perfect romp … uh, no. There's a little side story going on that involves the Ancient One and Charles Darwin, which I've given up on trying to understand – although this is the contribution of Tom Peyer to the mix, Kesel's hands are clean on this one. Somehow, the simian version of the Invisible Woman has turned human, with no explanation other than “something happened and we'll try to cure her”.Read more ›
