Memetic #1

By: James Tynion IV, Eryk Donovan
Released: Oct 22, 2014

A Meme is an idea that starts with an individual, and then spreads throughout multiple persons and potentially entire societies. Richard Dawkins suggests a meme's success comes from its effectiveness to the host. But history shows that destructive memes can spread just as rapidly through society. MEMETIC shows the progression of a weaponized meme t...

I'm officially hooked on the series. I think it has finally hit its stride as the story advances. I just hope it can keep it in future issues. Also, the art looks phenomenal, definitely improved over the first issue or two.

I enjoyed this issue much more than the first two. There is more plot development as we get our first glimpse of who the real bad guys are and not just their cronies. The art was consistent throughout the issue and very pleasing to look at. The plot is starting to pick up and I'm genuinely interested as to where it is heading.

The story continues to be intriguing enough to warrant my keeping it on my pull list. New stock characters are being introduced, I just hope Silvestri develops them well enough in future issues. The art continues to be pleasing, I liked it better than in the first issue for some reason. Worth a read if you like fantasy stories.

I liked the general idea, but felt that the issue was a bit hurried in trying to set everything up. Also, I didn't like how the art changed halfway through the book. I'll keep it on my pull list to see how the story develops and see if the writing improves some.
