SINOPSIS: Every living creature on Earth has been devolved - the evolutionary clock turned back, reverting all life to odd mutations and prehistoric incarnations. The cities of man are little more than bloody territories ruthlessly dominated by tribal Neanderthals ruling from the backs of mammoths, packs of saber-toothed tigers, and giant man-eating insects. Raja, one of the few remaining "Still Sapien" humans, heads to San Francisco to find the antidote for the world-changing DVO-8 viral agent. But to cross the wasteland, she'll have to convince the last pocket of humanity to join her quest... and survive the Nazi hillbillies that rule them through fear!
Rick Remender, the acclaimed writer of Black Science, Low, and Deadly Class, unleashes a high-octane dystopian masterpiece on the world, featuring the brilliant artistry of Jonathan Wayshak!

What a mess. A virus invented to erase the religion from humans ...wha?? (yes, a really farfetched premise for a story full of cliches who you could encounter in a midnight "z-movie") transformed the humanity in mad neardenthals , and mutating the rest of biosphere into jurassic park. Yeah, pseudoscience evading all idea of logic. As if neanderthals won't be able to invent some kind of myth and rites (religion) :roll eyes::.
The heroine, Raja, is trying to get to San Francisco to obtain the cure. In the journey she encounters a compound of loosely named 'still sapiens' (think in every extremely violent dystopia ) and the troubles magnify. Murder, rape, slavery, you named it. And disgunting body parts flying everywhere.
So, they are worth it to save?
The story advanced with very little information, the characters cartoonish (evil-evil) ; Raja is obsessed and not really relatable. The drawing is really loose, going for shocking and confusing.
Not my kind of story.
And the end?? So- so- WTF?
