What I’m Reading: Collider #1
August 1, 2013 § Leave a comment
In a world where the laws of physics are falling apart, the Federal Bureau of Physics is there to respond to your emergency! With Collider #1 writer Simon Oliver (Gen 13) and artist Robbi Rodriguez do a great job of setting up a world where the gravity around your high school might suddenly disappear or a wormhole might appear in the trunk of your car.
It’s a great concept where the only rule is that “the impossible is possible.” The frayed edges of existence are well-drawn in a lose and expressive style, and the characters continue the motif with the (familiar) character types of the hard-nose, by-the-book boss, the experienced veteran, and the wild card.
This book is fun. If you have an ounce of nerd (enough to know what gravity is supposed to do) and especially if you’re getting tired of so many superhero comics, you will enjoy Collider, from Vertigo Comics.
