From JONATHAN HICKMAN, creator of THE NIGHTLY NEWS, PAX ROMANA and RED MASS FOR MARS, comes TRANSHUMAN, a story that covers the discovery of superhuman genetic engineering, the companies built on the back of that discovery and the marketing war to bring it into each and every one of our homes.

Illustrated by JM RINGUET, TRANSHUMAN is a mockumentary told in the same vein as the great Christopher Guest movies Spinal Tap and Best in Show.

    JM Ringuet has very little to work with in this comic book as the majority of the comic involves aging scientists and entrepreneurs discussing the subject matter in their offices. Not too much excitement in the conventional sense. In the little places where Ringuet can flex a little, the results are mediocre. Nothing about his art is amazing, sometimes it feels too unrealistic given the material. But once again, he does not have much to work with. I am looking forward to where this series goes in the little time it has. Read Full Review

    So, while Im interested to see where the story is going, I dont think its as good as Hickmans other work. Yet. Im hoping future issues will turn me right around, but for now its merely an interesting idea waiting for some fleshing out. Read Full Review
