What if a biological terror agent wiped out most of humanity, and our domesticated animals were left in charge? How would our dogs and cats set about ruling and rebuilding the world? Ransom, the leader of the Dog Tribe, has been murdered by a creature known as the Endark. An English Pointer named Legend reluctantly rises to lead in his place, vowing to kill the monster once and for all. From acclaimed novelist Samuel Sattin and award-winning illustrator Chris Koehler comes LEGEND, where cat technology rules, dogs partner with hawks, and humans may be the most beastly creatures of all.

    LEGEND #1 is a slow burn and, largely, is stage-setting, as many number one issues are.

    If there are any hiccups to this release, it's elements that will assuredly be ironed out as the series continues.

And like I said before, the actual apocalypse of this story feels almost understated " if you aren't paying much attention, this could be very well be going on in the present day, which part of me almost believes might have made for an even more powerful story. Regardless of these quibbles, however, Legend is a strong showing from a pair of creators who definitely deserve to be on your radar. With art this good, these dogs are already having their day.

    With the exceptions ofAnimal Farm, The Lion King, Finding Nemoand the Twilight Barking featured in the 101 Dalmatians book, I can pretty much take or leave “animals as humans” stories. As a reader, I don't need the juxtaposition of seeing real life problems broken down by cute creatures toaid my understanding of them. Still, the fact that this genre has so many classics, across various media proves that I maybe in the minority. Z2 Comics generally look to challenge readers, and here, that goal is once again reached. Read Full Review
