In stores today from DC Comics is Sean Ryan and Ig Guara’s Flashpoint: Grodd of War.
This one-shot intrigues me to no end, but I can’t really put my finger on why.
Something about an entire comic exploring the character of a super-intelligent gorilla who has conquered the entirety of Africa, yet remains completely unsatisfied with any of his accomplishments, sounds like it could, perhaps, be a metaphor for the human condition.
But I’m not sure how or why I even think this.
Check out some preview pages after the jump and then let me know what you think. Better yet, buy the thing, read it, and then get back to me.
You rule an entire continent. You are feared. You are infamous. You are Grodd.
You have everything you’ve ever wanted. And you are miserable.
Why? Writer Sean Ryan, penciller Ig Guara and inker Ruy Jose answer this question by bringing us a twisted character study of a great, if restless, criminal mind in the FLASHPOINT: GRODD OF WAR one-shot.
