4001 AD: War Mother #1: Humanity Beckons 4001AD-WARMOTHER_001_002

Written By: Fred Van Lente

Art By: Thomas Giorello

Color By: Brian Reber

Release Date: August 3rd.

Life below New Japan on planet Earth is not easy. Nature is has taken back much of what was left of humanity’s claim on the planet. The War Mother is responsible for going out and scavenging what is left of technology; and bring it back to The Grove, a hold out of humanity. Ana is a resourceful hard to kill War Mother. You follow her outside The Grove, as she explores wreckage that fell from the sky in, 4001 AD: War Mother #1.

It’s really cool being able to review a brand new character. It’s obvious that I’m riding the coat tails of the creator’s hard work. So when reviewing a first issue of brand new series, its customary for one to give a little grace. Just like when someone tells you to watch a new series, they tell you to watch the first few episodes. I’ve been told to watch as much as ten episodes before the series “gets good.” Well that’s ten hours I’m not looking to spend. Be that as it may, we have a series that gets it right on the first try.

The War Mother in this issue is Ana. She’s been tasked with finding whatever scraps she can to help keep civilization going. 4001 AD: War Mother #1 handles establishing characters, motivations, and mood for the book with finesse. Fred Van Lente, gives us a main protagonist that lures you into a world that you want to know more about. Fred also gives a main protagonist that’s worth following. Ana also has a gun that has an advanced artificial intelligence built in the gun. So the story has a sort of Dorothy and the Tin Man thing going on that I like, similar to the movie Prometheus.

4001 AD: War Mother #1 has great art that goes hand in hand with the story. I like seeing a post apocalyptic world where nature has reclaimed what was once hers. This gives a lot more toys in the playground for the artist, Thomas Giorello to play with. The colorist Brian Reber gives great depth to the whole book. Its a more organic base than the neon festival of New Japan, which is good.

Overall we have a brand new character and story, that I believes a chance. I recommend the book, and I enjoyed the characters thoroughly. In fact buy two, one for yourself and one for someone looking to get into comic books. This is a great entry point.
