Eve of Extinction, TKO

A terrifying apocalyptic thriller, Eve of Extinction (TKO Studios) wildly succeeds thanks to its monster-extravaganza and interesting main protagonists. Two mothers at war with each other struggle to earn their daughter’s love while the rest of the world falls apart.

The rain brought something. Something that changed the men into something inhuman. To rescue their stranded daughter, two mothers must survive the hurricane, and the horrors it unleashed. But can they work together long enough to save their daughter in a world where all men have become monsters?

Here are 5 reasons why you should read Eve of Extinction:

5) The Writing!

Eve of Extinction

Writers Steven Simeone and Savatore A. Simeone focus on the rivalry between Elizabeth and Christine, two parents who would do anything for their child, Antonia. Unable to get along, Elizabeth and Christine are always arguing with each other about what’s best for Antonia. Letterer Ariana Maher allows their personality to shine through in the dialogue; Elizabeth is more careful and Christine is hardheaded. 

4) The Artwork!

Nik Virella’s has a distinctly gruesome look towards the monsters. Aided by Isaac Goodhart’s line art, the monsters are more aquatic based on their clawed hands and scaled skin structure. These creatures are coming out of the water and need the rain to breathe on land.

3) The Colors! 

Notice how the colors by Virella and Ruth Redmond start off bright and vivid. As the apocalypse progresses, there is no more electricity and the shades are darker. 

2) Teen Perspective!

Steven Simeone and Savatore A. Simeone have an interesting perspective on parenting. No matter what sound advice Elizabeth and Christine come up with, Antonia is in the midst of her own coming-of-age tale. Antonia has to live her own life and make her own decisions. 

1) A Family Drama!

Eve of Extinction combines teen angst, family drama, and horror into an incredibly fast-paced read. Horror fans will definitely dig the monsters in this comic!

 Eve of Extinction is out in stores now, with the first issue available free.
