Starve

I’ve enjoyed the work of Brian Wood ever since Channel Zero, and have followed him through pretty much his entire career. After the terrific Northlanders and DMZ though, I did find The Massive to be a bit less interesting to me (even though I read all of it, but I skipped the new mini-series that came out this year) and I stopped reading Rebels after a few issues, but I may go back to it. Somehow, I had missed the release of one of his latest series (I’ll write about the other one in a separate post), Starve, and over the past week or so I’ve been catching up on it (there are 8 issues out), and I’m loving it to death. I’m usually not a big fan of Danijel Zezelj’s art style, but for some reason it really works for me this time, and I love the protagonist and the setting (a near future where people are obsessed with a reality cooking show). So far for me, this is as good as DMZ, if not better.
