'Savage' by B. Clay Moore with art by Clayton Henry tells a story that lives up to its title.
The story in Savage switches between the past and present. In the present, a 15 year old boy survives on an island filled with dinosaurs. In the past, we learn how his family came to be on the island and the fate of his parents. The boy is determined to get back to civilization, but he has a few things to take care of before he leaves the island.
This story is visceral and violent. Some of the story is told with minimal words. I love that the writer was willing to trust the artist with conveying the story through art this way. The art style even changes between past and present. I really, really liked it. I also liked the creator commentary with panel breakdowns at the end of each of the 4 issues represented here. They gave a nice insight to the creative process.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Valiant Entertainment, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
