Bocquet and Rochette – Snowpiercer Volume III: Terminus | Review

Title: Snowpiercer Volume III: Terminus

Author: Bocquet and Rochette

Type: Fiction

Page Count: 232

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.

Another strong instalment at the series, and I’m starting to feel pretty invested by this point. The only thing that I’m really worried about is the fact that it currently feels so open that I feel like it could go on for much longer than the four more volumes that are out. But then, sometimes you can have too much of a good thing, and so perhaps they quit while they were ahead.

I can’t say too much here without spoiling the plot, but suffice to say that we get to quite literally see inside some of the charactersheads. It’s a unique little quirk that I haven’t seen elsewhere and it was cool to see what Hill and Rodriguez could do with the idea. Cool.
