Review: Pariah by Aron Warner


SUMMARY FROM PARIAHONLINE.COM:
A twelve-book graphic novel series from the mind of Oscar-winning film producer Aron Warner, illustrations by Eisner-nominated Brett Weldele, written by Philip Gelatt, and published by Sea Lion Books.
The series follows the adventures of a group of ‘vitros’ – genetically enhanced children with “beyond-human intelligence” – who go on the run after being framed for the release of a deadly virus.
MY TAKE:

There are a lot of superhero/superhuman books and series out there, so I was kinda expecting this to be something that's already out there.

Pariah is basically the story of a group of vitros or humans that are mentally advanced and are seen as the enemy by the more normal humans.

Reading Pariah is a lot like reading a book written in the first person. It's an interesting approach that works well with the story.

The story and the way it is told is much like the first few seasons of Heroes. That is, it's the special humans versus the humans who don't understand them. So, if you liked Heroes, you'll like this. It can get a little violent, though, so I wouldn't recommend it to the squeamish.

Thanks to Sea Lion Books for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:
  1. It's an interesting premise.
  2. The characters are interesting.
  3. The writing style and the illustrations mesh well.
THE BAD:
  1. The illustration style may not work for everyone.
FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
It's in the specifics and the details that life will surprise you.
READ IT IF:
  1. You liked Heroes.
  2. You like action-packed graphic novels.
  3. You like sci-fi novels.
