Lyla must choose to make the ultimate sacrifice, changing everything she thought to be true. She is tasked to use the "killer app" the children of the island have created in order to take out all the adults on the island.
YOU ARE OBSOLETE is a spine-tingling thriller that evokes the eerie naturalism of 1970s horror films with a modern deadly digital twist. Written by Mathew Klickstein (Sony Pictures' Against the Dark, Slimed!, Springfield Confidential, Selling Nostalgia) and drawn by Evgeniy Bornyakov (DESCENDENT).

    You Are Obsolete didn't quite stick the landing as much as I would have liked and part of it is because it needed to make things just a bit clearer and more defined within the core story itself. I liked the tale in seeing what Lyla discovered and how she tried to grapple with it but I don't think it was communicated to the reader quite as clearly to make it connect. Watching her trying to take control of things at the end here is about as expected and her push leads to a somewhat ambiguous ending that you can read a few different ways when I think it needs more clarity. Klickenstein presented some neat ideas throughout the run and Bornyakov's artwork so wonderfully captured the paranoia and tension of the whole situation that combined with Affe's color design it was pretty intense. It's an interesting book that I wonder if it works better when read in full. Read Full Review
