Drinking all day at a strip club leads Johnny to some unwanted attention from the locals. All the while a turn-coat makes a play to rat out The HUMANS.

    So, who should read The Humans? Well, everyone. Unless you are easily offended, that is. The Humans is gritty and realistic (despite the fact that they are all apes), and incredibly enjoyable. Read Full Review

    The Humans is not for everyone. That said, if you like aw and uncensored stories about the outlaw fringes of society this could be the book for you. There is something freeing about casting apes as the protagonists. Keller and Neely immediately remove standard societal racial bias and can focus directly on the underlying themes of outlaws vs. other outlaws vs. the law vs. “normals”. I'm highly entertained by this book, and if my attempts to discuss it without any overt spoilers sounds interesting to you, do yourself a favor and pick up an issue. #6 could serve as a decent jumping on point for you. Humans For Life. Humans Til Deth. Read Full Review

    Whats so incredibly endearing about The Humans is how it embraces the most insane and innocuous aspects of comic history and comics as a medium to convey its deeper point. Theres a serious misconception that plagues so many comics that the only way to convey an idea is through dialogue and text or that serious and adult discussions mean a comic must exclude the creatively freer aspects of the medium. The Humans flies in the face of all these ideas and is so much better for it, using simple stories with well-written characters and a beautiful blending of art, form, and theme to convey its bigger ideas. The only real problem with The Humans is not enough people are talking about how great it is. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a weird book. But I say “weird” with endearment, and the most respect possible. It’s very difficult to be original, and even in this book, a lot of the themes and ideas have been done. But it seems to me that Keller and Neely have created an original idea. This one is definitely worth the read, and keeping track of. See you at issue #7! Read Full Review
