5 5 In a futuristic world of turmoil, BlackAcre stands as the last American cityCollecting BlackAcre 1 5As a budget conscious comic book reader, I appreciate when a publisher like Image Comics provides inexpensive access to their books Image typically releases their trade paperbacks, specifically the first volumes, in the 9.

Issue One introduces us to the main character, Hull, who is on his last day of duty as a soldier tasked with protecting BlackAcre Upon retirement Hull is sent on a mission to find a former comrade who has gone missing outside of the city The harsh and unforgiving world outside of BlackAcre s protective walls is revealed immediately read A near future America divided between the ultimate gated community, and hardscrabble rustics who are pretty much Handmaid s Tale on a budget It s competently told and entirely too plausible, yet somehow never quite comes alive.

An intriguing post apocalyptic last bastion story mixed with spec ops and religion Perfect
