Broken Gargoyles feels like a future set World War I story. A hardcore veteran of the war tears through America laying out his own brand of awesome justice. Character design alone makes this former soldier my favorite character. He’s something of Mad Max meeting Fallout with a WWI flare thrown in. The bit of development we get on this character makes him even cooler.
Character moments are defined without wasting time through well written dialogue. The action scenes are brief, but don’t leave the reader wanting. This is a fast moving issue.
The story quickly comes together in the end to set up one hell of a cliffhanger.
The style of the world is very intriguing. It looks like the 1920’s are butting heads with the future. References make me think this is an alternate reality. It was smart of the creators to not over explain these details or put a deliberate mark on setting. They now have the flexibility to make this world their own.
The talents behind this comic have done something cool with blending the old world and the new. They’ve also made a badass story while starting a discussion of vets, the downtrodden, and the horrors of war.
