Theresa isn’t your typical girl, and everyone reading this surprisingly sprawling story knows there’s a lot to this character. Don’t think you’ve got her figured out, because she’s likely to surprise you in some way. After she attacks her mother she’s hauled off to a facility that isn’t necessarily the kind of prison we’re familiar with. The prison Theresa is taken to is for monsters. All sorts of beasts roam the facility, and Theresa, still brand new to her condition (and ever changing) may find herself in some troubling positions, forced to fight to stay alive.
Fighting is part of the program, as these monsters are being trained. They’re essentially being weaponized. And sadly, only two of them in the facility seem to have a clue as to what is going on. Rex and Theresa are the clear leads and high thinkers of the lot, but there’s only so much they can do when the cards are stacked against them, and when the organization overseeing this project catch wind that these monsters aren’t too keen on being turned into killing machines, things get really, really far out.
I’m enjoying the writing of Chris Kipiniak. I’m not certain if I’ve read any of Chris’ work in the past, but Kipiniak is most certainly be keeping an eye out for in the future. I’ll be doing the same for J.K. Woodward, an artist with an absolutely beautiful style, seemingly designed for this specific project.
It’s been a few years since this story initially became available, but I’m happy to have discovered late rather than never. There’s awesome talent here that has me intrigued, and I’m quite curious to look deeper into the bold publisher that got behind this book, Monkeybrain Comics.
