[Comic Review] Nowhere Men #1

Nowhere Men #1

“What is Your Tipple?”

Nowhere Men #1, released by Image Comics, is an interesting entity. Image is usually on the cusp, or edge, or pushing boundaries and trying new idea and concepts. This title is no different.

In this issue, we meet three of four individuals behind an organization known as “World Corp.” It is a who’s who of the scientific community. Geniuses brought together to supposedly better mankind. Then, we fast forward just a bit to see three of the big names in the organization butting heads over an incident involving the death of two employees. Two are adamantly against the further testing of this particular area of research while the other is staunchly supportive of it. An obvious battle over finances, greed and morality ensue.

Then, we move to another locale where we meet several individuals quarantined for some strange…disease. This is where things get a little hazy and confusing.

Overall, the story seems to be just one big introduction where the reader gets a brief glimpse at more than 15 characters. It’s a head full of information in such a short period of time.

The artwork is nice. It’s not far out there to make it stand apart from others on the shelf, but it’s enough that gives it a lasting flavor. It’s a style I don’t see much of these days, and if nothing else, I’ll be able to link it to these particular artists and even to this particular series.
