Topic: Comic Books - New
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3766 - It's the 2nd day of the New Year... And it is also my first review blog for 2013.
The item reviewed is the TPB for 'The Story Of All Of Us - Mankind - Volume One' from the History Channel and Zenescope Entertainment.
I'll be honest about this... I haven't seen the TV series that this TPB is based on.
However, the presentation as a TPB from the comic books previously published is a swell one!
What's this story about?
"From the producers of America the Story of Us comes the epic tale of the rise of civilization. The 12-hour series spans the first flourishing of civilization in Mesopotamia through the discovery of America. Groundbreaking production techniques bring to life the greatest landmarks and milestones of human achievement. CGI rebuilds lost worlds; large scale reenactments replay critical battles; innovative use of interactive maps dynamically illustrates the key factors that gave rise to civilization across the globe. MANKIND: The Story of All of Us emphasizes the simultaneity of the human adventure — how ancient Egypt thrived while Stonehenge was being built; China was at its zenith while Europe was plunged into the Dark Ages. HISTORY captures the danger, action, struggle, heroism, and adrenaline of MANKIND: The Story of All of Us!"
The above wrap up of this TPB seems to be a little overwhelming at first. But wait... This is just Volume One!
And the storylines are ones that are of interest to those that have any interest in History.
True, the stories are a little brief, but remember that these stories were first published in comic book format, and compiled into this TPB (trade paperback).
I for one found this first volume of the series to be a very good read. Plus the art is pretty darn good as well!
I'm giving this TPB a Very Fine / Near Mint (VF/NM) 9.0 out of a possible 10.0 comic book grading scale.
It is a good read to start out your brand new 2013 year with!
