Sean Lewis is apparently a hot item right now, and Hayden Sherman’s art is eye catching. The fine lines, the shadows, it reminds me of Ashley Woods work – but I actually like it better. It’s a bit sketchy looking, which won’t thrill or sell everyone, but by the time I was a third into the book I was sold. The first page is striking, it feels cold and isolated. The bare woods and tracks in the snow set the mood for whats to come.
The writing is sharp and crisp with nothing said that doesn’t need to be. Lewis doesn’t treat you with kids gloves, you as a reader are respected and trusted to keep up. Between Lewis and Sherman you don’t need to know anything going in, they set it up and knock it down. This is a sure fire hit and rightly so, this creative team has quite the adventure for us and I’m genuinely excited about it.
I’ll not talk too much about the story itself. Only to say it starts off strong and draws you in and never lets go. This is the first new title of 2017 that is without any doubt pull worthy. Buy this book. PW
Issue #1, Image, Mature: It may only be February, but The Few may very be the best new title of 2017. Action, a moody cast, thrills, incredible art by Sherman and once it has you, it never lets go. 10/10
From Image: Critically lauded writer and playwright SEAN LEWIS follows up the cult favorite SAINTS with his newest book THE FEW. Teaming with red-hot artist HAYDEN SHERMAN for a LIMITED MAXI-SERIES, THE FEW combines Mad Max action with a Station Eleven sensibility in this sci-fi series for mature readers. In a dystopian future, two survivalist brothers stumble across an unlikely sight: a woman asleep in the woods holding nothing but a gun and a baby wearing a gas mask. As these boys begin to embark on helping this woman, betrayals, secrets, and revolutions abound in the fi ght for what’s left of America. LINK
