Comic Review 39 // Kingdom: Promised Land by Dan Abnett
Kingdom is a pretty straight forward tale, it introduces the characters and then turns into an all action adventure about fighting and dieing, whilst the main character questions his role in it all. For some reason all the Aux are named after tv/movie/song personalities of the period that they were created in. The main character is Gene the Hackman who is leading his pack though the wilderness making sure the "Masters" are kept safe. We here a few terms used a lot through this story "Masters" stands for Humans their creators, "Lawn" the territory that surrounds the Masters, "Them" the invading insect creatures.
It's all happy families until Gene discovers a dark truth and soon the safety of the farm isn't that safe at all. Gene is forced to fight once more for survival and seeks only to protect the young Leezee Sower.
A great story with some beautiful art, the only negative I have is how the Aux talk. It can be difficult to read (at least for me). But this is really a classic Sci-fi tale told in a new and interesting way. Highly recommend it.
