Title: We Live
Author: Inaki Miranda and Roy Miranda
Illustrator: Inaki Miranda
Release Date: May 18, 2021
The year is 2084 and the world is wracked by crawling monsters and humans are becoming extinct. Five thousand children will be rescued by someone in deep space, the only thing is that they have to make it to the pickup points alive.
This was an interesting take on a post-apocalypse world. Earth has changed so much and humanity is dying quickly. The only hope left is for the children with special armbands. Hototo is one of the lucky children and his teenage sister Tala is helping escort him to the extraction point. They have a lot of encounters with monsters, extreme fanatics, and crazy humans trying to steal the armbands. The story was surprisingly gory and deadly but it worked well in a society that is dying.
I really loved the artwork in this comic. The colors really popped and the creatures were fascinating and gross. I found Tala and Hototo’s story to be heartbreaking and hopeful. I was surprised by the ending because I wasn’t expecting this to be a superhero esque story but I did enjoy it. I am looking forward to reading the next comic.
