Synopsis: A cataclysmic event, now remembered only as 'The Midnight', led to the collapse of civilization. Now, centuries after, the remnant of a mega-city named Paradiso, is the only place on earth where humanity still thrives. When Jack Kryznan arrives at the outskirts with a mysterious device capable of bringing dead technology to life, his arrival sets off a power struggle that threatens to embroil the human settlers, bionic creatures known as Guardians and Paradiso herself. Jack and his companions will begin their journey of self-discovery through this living city even as the city itself strives to understand what it means to be alive.


Review: I could not get into this post-apocolyptic story. The artwork is very cool. It has a grungy, dirty feel to it. Quite appropriate to the setting. I just could not get into the story. I was confused, and my attention was not held. I give this volume a 2/5
