I loved the change of pace “One Nation: Safe House” gives us from everything else on the market. Having every panel be a photo from the photographer’s camera was a stroke of genius. It’s reminiscent of some of the found footage movies that we’ve had over the years, only without a horror theme.
If you like action, this is the book for you. We hit the ground running and don’t slow down. It makes for a quick read. The trade off is not being able to connect with any of the characters. Other than the photographer, Banks, we never learn anyone else’s name.
I liked how intriguing the cover artwork was. It caught my eye and made me want to read the story when I saw it online. That’s the job of a cover. It did its job well.
I loved how the interior artwork was done. There was consideration for the fact that even though the story is told through a camera lens, not every shot would be in focus. It’s a little thing but it adds to the power of the story and emphasizes the first person perspective.
As a geek on a budget I felt “One Nation: Safe House” was well worth the price of admission. We get plenty of action, great artwork, and a glimpse of a new hero in indie comics. What more can you ask for?!
