The daughter of an assassinated globalist kingpin breaks out of an internment camp and leads her fellow escaped prisoners in a battle against an elitist conspiracy of shadow governments, megabanks, and military juntas in this edgy and subversive thriller that channels Fight Club by way of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. A graphic novel that fearlessly assaults politics-as-usual, Young Terrorists continues the legacy of DMZ and The Invisibles as it manically rips the scab off life under the new world order and revels in the pus underneath.
I received this book from the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Young Terrorists is a comic book that focuses on Sera, Heiress to the Black Temple, and Cesar, a guy that’s been on the run for years. The graphics weren’t too bad, the art style was okay and well drawn.
Sera, wrongly accused of her father’s murder is sent to a prison specifically for terrorists. She breaks out and now she’s hunting down those that wronged her. She had a bright future ahead of her but all that changed. She went from cute heiress to undefeated champ in the fighting ring.
Cesar, snuck into the country when he was only seven, hitchhikes from place to place. I haven’t really figured out what he’s searching for. He’s free now to do whatever he wants.
Sera recruits Cesar, and plans to train him. We don’t get much from this comic. It seemed to be an introductory course into who there characters are and what they’re after.
The actual story wasn’t too bad, but I didn’t feel like there was much plot development. I might give the second volume a chance just to sate my curious mind.
Warning: This book contains a bit of nudity and sex scenes.
