Classic - 9/10 - Sergio
This one is a true masterpiece, no doubt about it.

The story is told in the near future where the world is threatened by a terrorist group called Obscurantis Order that wants the emergence of a new religious dark age. We follow three characters, Nike, Amir and Leyla that are directly affected by the Obscurantis Order activities. These three persons are linked to each other thanks to the incredible memory of Nike that remembers the first days of his life spent in a hospital in the war affected Balcans with Amir and Leyla by his side. His goal at the beggining of this book is to find the other two.

This mix of sci-fi imagery with strong references to the recent past (in this case the Balcan war and religious extremism) is very interesting. It's also interesting the way the story of the three protagonists are merged into one making the story much more dynamic, thrilling and deep.

The art in this book is just great. The drawings and colouring are made with pencils and the result is as dreamy and moody as it is realistic. If I had to complain about something I would say the characters lack facial expression but the artwork is so beautiful that everything ends up being very expressive.

Recommended to everyone who read comics for more than just shallow entertainment.
