Sanity-eating monsters ended humanity. The unlucky few who survived now hide in the cracks of a broken world. And yet somehow, beneath the graveyard that used to be San Antonio, Rico met Lupe, the girl of his dreams. But how did she get here? And why is she smiling? No one survives out in the street. No one smiles where the monsters lurk.

    'Heart Eyes' is a wonderful new post-apocalyptic story full of engaging characters and eye-popping visuals. The monster designs are enormous and highly detailed which lends authenticity to the destruction they're capable of. It's also the juxtaposition of one human's understanding, small, trusting, and fearless amid the hysteria. Hopeless and Ibanez make an intoxicating blend of dystopia, sci-fi horror, and human drama.

    Heart Eyes has a lot going for it here and while I try to avoid thinking of how it could be adapted into another form, it just screams an easy and interesting adaptation. Ibanez's artwork is just so good that it makes it all comes alive in its ruin so well that you can visualize it before you. Hopeless does a really good job of giving us some real meat on the characters of Lupe and Rico in a short space while still not making it feel rushed. And that's on top of introducing the basic concept of how the world ended and that time has passed since then to lead things to as ruined as they are. I'm really interested in seeing where this goes and what the real story is here, beyond the obvious character element, as it could be really interesting even if the thing with the monsters is just the trapping to tell the main story.

    The artwork is fantastic. The character design is interesting, fun, and flirtatious; the monster designs are superb, these are full on cosmic horrors, with tentacles, teeth, chitinous beaks, and all manner of insect like appendages as all good monsters should be. Hell, Rob Bottin would be proud of some of these. I also love the world that Ibez and Duke have created; its not a desolate wasteland, there is life and colour and some really great details. Theres nothing I can really fault in the art at all, Ibez and Duke do a brilliant job of bringing Dennis Hopeless script to life, and Im really looking forward to seeing what they bring to the rest of the series.
