The Pull

Availability: Ready to download

An endtimes caper for the Global Warming era, where humankind's consumption has attracted the attention of the primordial destroyer - THE UNDOER. The only hope lies in BRENTON DEMM, one of Earth's thirteen super-science police, and his ex-wife GAYANO TITH. With days left until the Undoer swallows the Earth, Tith can stop the Undoer, as long as Demm can keep her alive.

Ever since his gloryhounding caused a disaster that killed hundreds and put Earth on the Undoer's radar, he's been clinically incapable of giving a damn. Disaffected, corrupt, but still looking for a hint of hope in his last days, Demm finds it when Tith tells him the world doesn't have to end. He just has to get back to work.

    Reading The Pull, I started thinking about the role of dialogue in comics. How much do you need to tell the story? Is it possible to have too much dialogue? The amount of dialogue has a visual effect on the page; when does the effect tip over into drowning out the imagery? There is a lot of dialogue in The Pull. Almost every page is covered in dialogue. And none of it is funny, none of it is very interesting. In fact, most of it is outright boring.

Almost every page is covered in dialogue. And none of it is funny, none of it is very interesting. In fact, most of it is outright boring. There's some involved story about a planet that is coming to eat Earth. And maybe it can be stopped. And there's a lot of fighting - this doesn't stop the unending flow of dialogue, btw. There is no respite. It all ends in a way that I think is supposed to be profound and emotional, but for that to happen, I'd have to care about any of the characters, which I sadly did not. And then there's the art, consisting of manga-ish stretched faces and manic fight scenes. It's not for me. If you want to read about a planetoid coming to eat our planet, I'd rather direct you to Junji Ito's Remina . (Received an ARC through Edelweiss)

    Orlando does a hell of a job turning in an end of the world story that manages not to depress, except for you know end of the world stuff. Yes, this is a one and done novella. And, go read it. Yes, Brenton is a bit of a super hero, and yes he made a mistake he wants to atone for. Yes, he wants his wife back, but its complicated. The tropes are tried and true. Orlando gives a slight spin on these while pacing the story like he literally had to finish it before the end of the world comes.

    TKO's wave 3 was a total disaster. They released 3 titles and they were one worse than the other. I rated all three titles 1*. I wish I could rate this one a zero.

    The story was decent but wasn’t all that cohesive and could have used some decent editing. The art was okay but characters weren’t too distinct and it didn’t take advantage of the larger format that TKO publishes. The color distracted and obscured more than it helped. In all honesty, this book would have been better served as a 6-8 volume B&W, digest-sized manga.
