Animosity Vol 1- Who is running the asylum- A Review
Animosity tells the story of the day the animals woke up. The animals start thinking which leads to the possible end of humanity. Humans after years of being on the top of the food chain are now lower it’s the animal’s time, and if you don’t like it well, you can die. The story focuses on the relationship between Sandor and Jesse. Sandor is a Bloodhound adopted by Jesse’s family when he was a pup. Jesse is the little girl that picked and cared for and took care of Sandor since he was a pup. Sandor becomes Jesse’s Guardian and pseudo parent looking for a haven. How will Sandor protect and aid Jesse in this new world? The only way to find out is to pick up and read Animosity.
Animosity is a rare comic that combines elements of Science Fiction, Action Adventure, and Horror and blends them together to create a well written captivating story. The dynamic between the animals whether it be revenge or love adds to the intrigue of the story. Several mysteries are engrossing throughout this first Arc of Animosity. The story switches dynamics from Bone Chilling to uplifting and back often which makes for an amazingly crafted story. We see the brutality of the Animals matched by the touching dynamic between Sandor and Jesse. Animosity is another example of why everything Marguerite writes is a must read.
The Animosity-The Rise one-shot is an exceptional addition to Animosity Volume 1. It’s amazing to see different parts of the Animosity Universe develop. Cannot wait to see how Animosity The Rise interplays in the Animosity world and where The Rise story goes. It is brilliant to see another side of this universe.
Rafael De Latorre’s art with Rob Schwager’s colors brings to life the incredible world of Animosity. The artwork evokes and conveys the dynamic of the horrors of the animal’s rage to the heartwarming joys of the dynamic between Sandor and Jesse. The Art and Colors are brilliant and showcase the writing allowing the reader to get the subtleties of this new world on display.
It’s easy to see why people consider Animosity the flagship of AfterShock Comics. Pick this amazing well-written story with superb art and vibrant colors, well worth the money for the TPB and a fantastic edition for your Comics collection. It will be interesting to see wherever Marguerite Bennett, Rafael De LaTorre, and team take Animosity so far its been brilliant.
