Graphic Novel Review: Ancestor
I'm not alone in really liking, "Ancestor," as others were impressed by it too. The story starts-out with the man who is arguably the main character, Peter Chardin, using a technology known as, "The Service," which is like the internet made even more powerful and ubiquitous. It is a fascinating thing to see portrayed in the story and that makes it all the more disappointing that the characters find themselves in a situation early in the story that disables the service. You see, our group of loose associates all go to the house of a genius inventor named Patrick Whiteside.
As I stated at the start, my only concern is that we see so many ideas brought-up only to have them quickly be replaced by even more fascinating concepts. In an era where were often talk about comics being too decompressed this is actually a book I think would benefit from being double, or even triple, its relatively smaller size. Still, what we get within the pages of, "Ancestor," is really cool and I for sure loved reading it.
4.5 out of 5 stars.
You buy Ancestor on Amazon if you like!
