“SCIENCE IS THE NEW ROCK ‘N’ ROLL!”
So said Dade Ellis, Simon Grimshaw, Emerson Strange, and Thomas Walker at the dawn of a new age of enlightenment that ushered in a boom in scientific advancement. As the research supergroup World Corp., they became the most celebrated scientists of all time.
They changed the world – and we loved them for it.
But where did it all go wrong?
And when progress is made at any and all cost, who ultimately pays the price?
I purchased my first Humble Bumble a couple of months ago. I saw on Twitter that I could get a bunch of comics for not very much money while supporting charity–that sounded like a pretty good deal to me! I did misunderstand that they weren’t ACTUAL copies of the trades, just digital…but still–I got some great downloads that I hadn’t heard of before.
Nowhere Men Vol. 1 was one of the picks from that HB. I mostly liked it–sort of a superhero origin story. One of the aforementioned rock star scientists becomes addicted to acid and out of his tripping invents a mega virus and unleashes it upon an experimental group living on a space station.
The art mimics a 1970s rock mag, complete with interviews and editorials. The story did get a little wordy at times–I’ll admit to not reading every page. I also did get confused on the timeline some, as it flipped back and forth from past to present, and one character’s age was….complicated.
However, I am intrigued by this comic enough to add Vol. 2 to my TBR. I want to know what happens next–maybe not enough to pay full price for it, but I’ll see if my library has a copy. It was a good read, and one I wouldn’t have heard of most likely, without the bundle.
