Comic Review: Hybrid Earth

November 17, 2013     /

Recently I got the opportunity to read and review a new comic series written by Rustin Petrae (Blood Ties: The First) and drawn by Frederick Allison Jr.

The Story

Prologue: In December of 2015 the nano-bomb was created, fusing nuclear and nano technology together. The first, and last bomb, was detonated into Earth’s atmosphere. When the irradiated nanomachines came back down, they merged humans with machines.

In this issue of Hybrid Earth, we discover Officer Xander Hastings chasing down an informant by the name of Com. Com has some information regarding the disappearance of hybrids. But this “standard” investigation turns out to be much more.

Main Characters

The story follows detective Officer Xander Hastings, as he deals with the aftermath of the detonation of the nano-bomb. I enjoyed the character of Officer Hastings, the go to cop that seems to get the job done, regardless of protocol, collateral or aftermath. He is accompanied by his trusty floating fairly like computer “Link” (seems like a strong resemblance to “Navi” from the Legends of Zelda) that guides, communicates, helps, and fights along side Hastings. Together they seem like a pretty good team, Hastings does the dirty work while Link gets in the way a bit, but helps in the long run.

Hybrid Earth's main characters: (left) Link, a trusty floating computer sidekick. (right) Officer Xander Hastings, the cop dealing with half human half machine hybrids.

The Review

If you are looking for a new take on a typical crime drama, then this is the comic for you. The storyline is intriguing and leaves plenty of room for growth and expansion. Imagine all the different characters you an have, each one being a different hybrid between man and machine. I will be interested in seeing if Officer Hastings ever finds what it is he is looking for or what his back story is.

Keep in mind the rating on this is mature. I’m still trying to fully figure out why it has a mature rating. Maybe for the violence and language, although the language is censored. In my opinion, I would almost prefer them to use the words rather that censor out a letter here or there.
