So, the artwork really did feel like I was watching a dark lit film as for me it looked real. The character designs were realistic but also with rough edge to them with the way they were drawn, all together it makes it a unique and intriguing read. Because the drawings look real I feel like that allows the reader to have more of an emotional connection with the characters as the main character is basically a broken man trying to fix his wrongs which is a common human emotion. The Fly character is also really nicely designed, although I feel he actually changes a few times but he is still fearsome and creepy, which is what you want for a monster story. All the action is drawn very well with gunfire which is designed in such a lovely way and framed just like a film which makes the reader feel on ease and more involved. The strange sex scene was constructed in a fresh way, as the drawings were done in the perspective of a wearable camera on the female character as she slowly goes down his body, which was crafted really well. The background design was also really good with loads of laboratory equipment and other miscellaneous stuff.
The story is good and bad, it flows well but I feel there could have been more of a backstory but suspect that will slowly get revealed in the following comic books. The character development works so well as we find out near enough straight away that he has bad genes/ is infected. This news then leads to the sex scene where we see raw emotion and more development in the character as we see how much his infection effects him mentally and physically. We find out the relationship between all the characters but we don't find out how his dad has become The Fly, all we know is that there is revenge and redemption. The main character is a smart scientist who is trying to cure his dads mutation, so it is basically a father and son story with a twist. I think once the story develops in the next comics then this could be a really nice complete narrative but at the moment there are to many unanswered questions.
Conclusively this comic is really good with great art and a emotion packed story with huge potential. The action was fantastic and reflects the characters and their human limitations. This is well constructed and I am excited to read the next one to find out more about the outbreak of the infection/flies. I can't see everyone enjoying this though, it is definitely for the sci-fi/ old school monster horror fan but with less slapstick. A really enjoyable comic book though.
