Review: The Only Living Boy (issue #1)

Reblogged from Yvette - Bookworlder:
The Only Living Boy - David Gallaher, Steve Ellis

Caught out in a storm, a runaway with no memory, Erik Farrell finds shelter (and a teddy bear backpack) under the overhang of a large boulder.   When he wakes in the morning, he finds himself in the far, post-human future. The city has been engulfed in a jungle, ruled over by a dragon. Fantastic creatures roam, and Eric encounters several species, including a mysterious insect race and a humanoid aquatic species, the Mermidonians. Forced to fight for his life by the evil Doctor Once, a mutant who serves even more frightening masters, Eric makes a choice to be bold.


Recommended for middle grade and up, for those who enjoy a post-apocalyptic, fantasy adventure. One of my favorite graphic/comic reads this year. Read my full review on my Wordpress blog at:
