Earth has been reset. Now known as Terra, the populace lives in blissful ignorance of the centuries of unrest that plagued mankind. Now the Terrans receive all they need from the mysterious, but unquestioned, "Providers." Life is free of hardship, pain, and suffering on Terra, but something is brewing and young Terran Daniel is determined to find the truth. Scout Comics presents another installment in the annals of Sci-Fi futures that are too good to be true.

    Children of the Grave works thanks to deft hands that never reveal too much in a fascinating new world worth exploring. There are interesting ideas at work here with a highly relatable perspective. It's a science fiction story that hits close to home in a world filled with misinformation and leaders who hide the truth. Read Full Review

    As for the Creative art team of Giolle Filippo, Marco Lesko, the post civilization mood was expected fair enough, but there are some outstanding panels that make me think that once, Daniel makes it deeper into the Prohibited zone the title might really take off. Read Full Review

    The lush land in and around Terra filled with nature reclaiming its home has potential though as does the unexpected emergence of grotesque body horror, so hopefully Terra is just the starting point and not the whole playground. Read Full Review

    I really enjoyed the story, I'm giving that a 9.5
    The artwork is good but it's a bit odd in that, while there are some really great scenes, there are also some where the shading and symmetry seems a bit too off. What an ending! Got my attention, it's on my pull list.

    A fairly good issue. The artwork is pretty good and the book has an interesting premise that is basically The Walking Dead meets M. Night Shyamalan's The Village. The issue does have a few problems such as excessive narration and that this issue mostly just sets up the world the main character lives in. However, that last gripe is forgivable because it is necessary information the reader needs to understand the mystery surrounding the world the character lives in. As long as the writers stick to their guns, this should be a fairly enjoyable five issue series. I definitely recommend checking out this series.
