It all takes place in Whipsnarl Zoo which has a world bubbling under the surface as the animals are getting restless because of new arrival unsettling the balance they’ve settled into. The lives of the animals & humans blur as things get stranger and the plot from Owen Michael Johnson swings from crazy to genius in the space of a few pages or panels. Backed up with art from John Pearson who brings the “head-fuck” effect with a glorious approach to the world that he injects a primal instinct into it. Colin Bell polishes off the edges with some slick lettering and I can’t sing this titles praises high enough with it’s almost schizophrenic mix of dialogue & narrative which injects an amazing momentum to the whole journey. A “cult” hit that has mainstream appeal……..just stunning.
February 2017 will see the series come to an end and after the momentum of the four chapters so far and the sneak peek a few weeks back of the final cover it’s setting itself up to hit the same heights it already has……and most likely with a few surprises in there too…..roll on February!!
