Writer: Simon Spurrier
Artist: Caspar Wijngaard
Recent Release Date: May 15, 2018

Synopsis: Centuries after humanity has disappeared, the Earth belongs to our leftovers: the animals, genetically modified for a war they don't remember, guarding a world they don't understand. But for one young winged monkey the repressive tribal routines are unbearable. Her name is QORA. She yearns to explore, to discover... to fly free.

Collects ANGELIC issues 1-6.


Review: This graphic novel starts out with talking flying monkeys and robotic dolphins! There is so much creativity in the worldbuilding of this world. There are hermit crabs in human skulls, manatees in hovering spheres, toxic clouds, and more! The basis of the story is an adventure quest that questions the world's established beliefs. It reminds of the movie A.I.. The artwork is ridiculously beautiful and so imaginative. I give this first volume a 4/5. I'd love to see more of this world!
