Major SpoilersAll Against All #2 is setting up to be the conflict between a lone human against the advanced Operators. But beyond that it takes advantage of the setting to explore humanity from a different perspective as well as pondering the value of scientific research when it is reduced to warfare. This is a terrific story on multiple levels.
COMICONWith all the ground work done, I think we're about to see this series evolving into an action thriller. Based on what the creative team has done with these first two issues, I'm excited to see where that goes.
Lotusland Comics'All Against All' doesn't easily fit a genre or a category in a conventional sense. It's certainly science fiction with a primal edge but it's also a space drama and military thriller. It's also one of the smartest comics written and creatively illustrated.
ComicBook.comAll Against All explains the history of the last human survivor (hilariously named Helpless) and how he managed to thrive in the controlled habitat created by aliens. This is a reverse Predator situation, although one seemingly derived by fundamentally misunderstanding human intelligence. The comic feels very raw and primal despite its sci-fi theme, helped along by the unique art of Caspar Wijngaard. It makes for an interesting contrast, one that hasn't fully succeeded through two issues but still has plenty of promise.
Multiversity ComicsA slow build-up of exposition and informational dump can keep the reader hooked for another issue, but the intricate artwork can feel confusing.
