The Resurrected (#1-5) Volume One (Carnouche Productions) delivers an atmospheric and suspenseful sci-fi thriller that capitalizes on its interesting premise. With the blending of different genres, The Resurrected does a great job exploring its societal themes.
In 2037 the world as we know it has changed dramatically. With all the technological advancements of the age, the most significant came from Drexler Nanotech Corporation (DNC), who created a serum engineered to resurrect the dead. The ethical implications were widespread and the serum was ultimately banned the world over.
5) The Detective Tale:
The Australian desert scenes are probably my favourite pages from THE RESURRECTED; a Bladerunner-esque story about how far one Indigenous-Australian detective would go to save his people from extinction.— Christian Carnouche (@CCarnus) September 5, 2019
