Comic Review: Zyklon B #1

27 May 2012 2:12 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The first thing that struck me when I opened Zyklon B #1 was how great it looks. The combination of illustrator (Joel J Cotejar), colourist (Mike Summers) and Letterer (Mindy Lopkin) has given it a real analogue feel. There’s an unmistakable depth to the artwork, which tells you right off the bat that although this is the first release from a new comic creator, it’s a serious piece of work.

Let’s get the title out of the way. It’s called Zyklon B, a gas synonymous with the most notorious and evil act of the 20th century, perhaps ever. This name has raised more than a few eyebrows, but anyone taking the trouble to read the comic will see that its use is not exploitative. It’s challenging, yes, but it’s absolutely relevant to the story.

We can move on now. Good.

The story opens with Dr. »
