If you are a fan of dystopian future’s funky haircuts and even funkier outfits then look no further but tomorrow’s is what you need. Set in a not too distant future social media has been turned against us art is out outlawed in a New World order is starting to take hold the only thing standing between us and oblivion are a secretive techno punk group of vigilantes known as the Tomorrows.
What starts off as your typical us against the system story turns into a metaphysical roller coaster ride that rivals Doctor Who. The various artists that work on the series us far have definitely went to art school and done their homework. I can see color harmonies within the panels that I haven’t seen since my college days! The surrealist aspects of the visuals are mind blowing to say the least each and every artist individually tackles the underlying artistic themes throughout the series.
The writing Kept me spellbound. The poetry exerpts at the beginning of each story really set the tone for the rest of the issue. My heart raced with the turn of every page in anticipation for what was to come. Each character seems to have the potential for rich back stories that keep readers coming for more. If you’ve grown tired of seeing the same characters doing the same things over and over and take a departure from reality and take a step towards the Tomorrow’s.
