    Corruption really is at the heart of Kaijumaxs artistic soul. Almost every storyline revolves around it in some way while exploring the concept in a variety of unique and engaging ideas. In characters like Electrogor or Gupta, a corrupt guard, the corruption is more external and literal with the realities of life on Kaijumax slowly draining away at them and filling them up with something worse. Other characters like Kumicho and Dr. Zhang, the prison doctor whose fallen for one of the inmates, the corruption at hand is internal and insidious as their minds and very souls slowly erode to better match their surroundings. The harshness of the stories at hand, especially coupled with the lighter visual aesthetic, might be off-putting to some, but if you can tune your brain to Kaijumaxs frequency youll find this an excellent read and easily the best sci-fi allegory currently being published in comics.

    I don't think I'll ever be in love with the cartoon monster veneer of Kaijumax, but underneath the cutesy dino skin is a truly dark, human story about prison life, and the dehumanization caused by a system that's just as corrupt as the criminals it seeks to contain. This book is deep and it is chilling. I hope the drama continues and we get to see what life is like on the outside. Read Full Review

    There are a ton of moving pieces in Kaijumax, and that's what makes it so good. Cannon is telling multiple stories here, and it really helps to flesh out the world he's simultaneously building. Read Full Review
