In the next installment -- one of the most brilliantly intense works of graphic fiction I've seen in some time -- a young man's desperate life is compared with that of an American chicken raised for slaughter.
And then there's a bunch of stuff I never quite understood, including a number of cage fighting scenes involving Sera. Followed by a bunch of explanatory scenes that tell us the future of Detroit. Well, it couldn't really get any worse than it is now.
When the story starts making sense again, we learn about a team of people who are living off the grid. They're modern revolutionaries of a sort. Not a bad concept, although it took some time for it to develop.
Surrounding all of this are raving network commentators who spew hatred for the benefit of their corporate masters (yes, just like now) and lots of porn channels (just like now) and an endless supply of guns (yeah, just like now).
The story is good and the art brings it together. I'm not quite sure where this is going (which isn't a bad thing) but I give Young Terrorists credit for getting off to a rocking start despite some floundering moments.
Wow... This comic is a very, very bold statement. I'm not sure how many people are familiar with Alex Jones and other conspiracy theorists but this tanks right up there. The author even basically stated that was his goal in the author's note at the end.
A lot went on in this first issue. From the prep school girl getting arrested for terrorism and turning into a cage fighter to the animal rights activist who was rescued from arrest by a man who shot the responding officers to death. They even have an Alex Jones type screaming Illuminati and government cover up. The panels of this guy's Infocide show even feature Alex-like commercials.
Honestly I think too much went on in this first book. I'm kind of overwhelmed and, at the same time, left with a ton of unanswered questions. I realize the plan was to let it get off to a decent roll but I think he should have picked just Sera's story and developed that and maybe introduced Cesar in the next issue.
"Ghandi said you can judge the morality of a nation by the way the society tears the animals. Monsters are real. They're us." Cesar's chapter, page one of the section (my ARC is not numbered)
I like the effort and I like the parallels to society so I'm giving it 4 stars. If it had been a bit simplified I would have been able to give 5.
The comic is well-illustrated and engaging but not totally clear (deliberately, I’m sure) at this stage. Issue #2 will perhaps help to explain a lot. Interesting and I look forward to part two.
