'The Fly: Outbreak' by Brandon Seifert with art by Menton3 looks really cool, but left me feeling a bit detached from the characters.
I'm supposing the story starts after the second Fly movie from the 1980s. Martin Brindle has been returned to human form and he wants to find a cure for Bartok, who was turned into a fly at the end of The Fly II. Martin has got a pretty detached marriage, and doesn't seem to even connect much to the people in the lab around him. That somewhat changes when there is an outbreak (if it's part of the title, is it a spoiler). He ends up in quarantine and things go from bad to worse. Can he find the cure before things get out of hand?
The artwork is dark and pretty cool, but I just didn't care much for the characters. Especially the main character. There are some horror moments, but they just felt a bit detached. So, when it was all said and done, I found that I'd have a hard time recommending it unless someone was a die hard fan of the movies from the 1980s.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, IDW Publishing, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
