The Spill Zone, Book 1
Synopsis: Nobody’s ever really explained the Spill. Was it an angelic visitation? A nanotech accident? A porthole opening from another world? Whatever it was, no one’s allowed in the Spill Zone these days except government scientists and hazmat teams. But a few intrepid explorers know how to sneak through the patrols and steer clear of the dangers inside the Zone. Addison Merrick is one such explorer, dedicated to finding out what happened that night, and to unraveling the events that took her parents and left her little sister mute and disconnected from the world.
Review: I did not know about this comics but the synopsis immediately intrigued me. When I received it I must say that I was really surprised, the book-object is really beautiful. This volume has a beautiful cover and brilliant pages, everything is very beautiful! And what about the talent of the illustrator? Everything makes you want to read it!
The Spill Zone is very well known in the region but nobody has access to it. An event occurred and the whole city changed without anyone understanding the reason. Strange things happen in town, animals that seem to talk, humans who have become strange dolls … everything got weird. Besides, the sister of Addison was present during this change and she is not herself since. But in order to survive and earn money, Addison goes back to town illegally to take pictures of all these strange things to sell to collectors.
I really had a good time with this story, the drawings, the story, everything is really well mastered. I really enjoyed discovering more about this city and its changes, but also about Addison’s little sister and her doll. The end happens anyway too fast and I confess that I really look forward to read the sequel. It was a very good first volume that I recommend!
