Rating: 5/5

This graphic novel series has been a bit of a weird one for me because it’s just got better and better as it went on. That might be a side effect of the fact that they had different authors for each book in the series, though.

But that could also be doing the series a disservice. Actually, I think this one was my favourite because of the subject matter. Set in the post-apocalyptic future on board a train that speeds through the frozen wastelands, in this final instalment, the train arrives at a final destination. What follows is basically an exploration of what happens when power gets to people’s heads, with everything from nuclear reactors and mutant babies to a few final answers and a little bit of closure.

I’d known about these books for a while, but it took me a surprising amount of time to get to it. Once I did though, I polished off the series in the space of a couple of months, and I’m kind of glad that I did. I think that I took more from it by reading it in that way, although I’ll also say that I think it could hold up well to a re-read. Definitely worth picking up.

I picked this graphic novel up because my girlfriend bought me another graphic novel by the same author, which I enjoyed. This one was pretty good too, and bearing in mind that I don’t like stuff about superheroes and that this had a few elements of that, I think I did pretty well.

The story itself follows a guy who can store pain and then dish it out to others, as well as another guy who’s in a coma and who’s the only one who knows the truth behind whether someone is a double agent or not. It made for an interesting read and the art was fantastic, but I don’t know if I’ll be in any rush to read the next volume. If I see it, I’ll grab it.
