Factory #1

Art and Story by: Elgo Elghorri

Release Date: 03/28/2018

 

Factory #1 follows the story of a civilization on the brink, led by a greedy tyrant. Our protgonist are a group of mutants.  . Elgo Elghorri is both artist and writer on this one and he went full tilt for Factory #1. The first page slaps you with a grotesque and painful death. Nothing is held back throughout the whole issue. I’m careful when trying to say what the writer wanted to convey, but I think he’s setting the tone for the whole series. Factory #1 shows a civilization whose populace is mutated, under fed, and uneducated. They’re completely helpless. Only those close to Gucco the leader are fed. And those that are fed think themselves superior. Maybe Elgo is trying to make some sort of political statement about the one percent in the real world, but this is a timeless tale told before. But I’m glad I’m getting Elgo’s take on it, which so far, I think deserves to be told.   

Elgo writes a character driven story. The first character I’ll mention is Baron Gucco the leader. Gucco has his henchmen lie to the populace that there isn’t any food left and that there aren’t any animals left either. But meanwhile back at his palace we see him feasting on a table full of meat. Raul is our hero (from what I can tell) in the story. Factory #1 is lite on Raul’s back story. What we gather is that he didn’t always have the head of a pig. Also his appearance at Gucco’s palace is foretold to bring doom, as predicted by the Precog. Who told of his coming with his dying breath. Along with Raul is three other companions. First is Obaz who has brought with him a pair of twins, Shima and Anka. Obaz mentions that before the journey they were clear headed philosophers. But slowly they grown incoherent in their speech. Besides these four are two mysterious gentlemen which we know little. First is a talking monkey, the second is a tall wanderer.

In Factory #1 everyone is drawn weird. They all seem to have deformities. I’m not sure if it’s due to lack of nutrition, radiation, incest, or because of all three. The tall wanderer however is the only normal looking dude in the whole issue. Everyone else has messed up eyes and teeth, or you know…has a pig head. I say all that to mention the art. Elgo fills the pages to the brim with detail. When you read a story written by the guy who also drew it, you get something special. Every issue he does is the director’s cut. Elgo likes drawing guts and even mentions it once in some dialogue. The meat banquet for Baron Gucco looks disgusting and greasy, which the same goes for the way he draws guts. This story essentially has no filler.

Elgo’s taste for the macabre will make Factory #1 stand out from the other comic books. One thing to take note of, is the way he draws his eyes. They’re small, and don’t always have pupils. Emotions are told with the mouth mostly, and detailed face lines. Elgo also uses a relatively small color palette, which help portray just how dreadful of a place it is. He uses earth tones for the most part, with splashes of pink and red to emphasize death. 

Factory #1 is an interesting book. I’ve found myself looking back over details that I might have missed. This book is bleak, it’s weird, and it’s disturbing. So if your looking for different I’d get this. But I wouldn’t recommend it for little readers, this is pure nightmare material.
