This story starts off in a post apocalyptic world, or so it appears and then time jumps into what could very well be considered present day. I dont mind post apocalyptic stories, as the Mad Max series is always something I have enjoyed.
But this story starts that way and then flashes back and it is revealed to be a ground hog day phenomenon. With no explanation. While I enjoy the work of the author of this story, so far I am not feeling anything for these characters. The story itself is interesting enough to make me curious about the next issue though.
The cover art is eye catching enough to make some one curios about the inside and indicates that something has happened with out giving the details away, showing two sides of the same world.
The interior artwork is just as well done as the cover artwork, and also conveys the feelings of what the main character Clive is experiencing and feeling very well. The artwork mixed with the text makes the reader feel what is going on in that moment, which is a nice momentary grasp of the story thus far.
Over all this story has potential, especially if it is going to expand on the details of what put Clive in the predictament that he is in, during the post apocalyptic timeline. If the story does not expand on that at least a little I feel that, it will not have much to grab the reader with as the character development to me seems a little slow.
I do think that once this story gets going, and is able to catch the attention of the reader, especially those that like before and after stories, it will have a lot of room to expand on in terms of the characters and world in general and could defiantly become a favorite for those who love that genre style!
