Nathan Bright is a fun-loving, beloved local weatherman living on a fully terraformed planet Mars in the year 2770, until he’s accused of having played a role in a terrorist attack that killed almost the entire population of Earth seven years earlier. Suddenly recast as the most despised man who has ever lived, Nathan is caught between a gang of criminals with a scheme to monetize the public’s thirst for vengeance and a government agent convinced that his memories hold the key to preventing future attacks. Who do you turn to when every human in existence hates your guts? LeHeup (Shirtless Bear-Fighter) and Fox (Dogs of War) explore this question in a thrillingly fast-paced, action-packed expert blend of high-concept sf and political thriller.
VERDICT Nearly every page of this volume, which collects single issues 1–6 of an ongoing series, adds to Fox’s reputation as one of the most talented and dynamic illustrators working in graphic novels today. Not to be missed
