The big bang created the world we know and life as we know it. The bigger bang destroyed all of that and created one being, at the expense of billions. A solitary figure known as the doom bringer, or cosmos, is just misunderstood and feared for all the wrong reasons. Guilt ridden over his own creation he tries his best to make amends but at times is unsuccessful with disastrous consequences.
His power is unquestionable and he soon becomes the interest of a power mad brute, an evil Martian king Thulu whose only intention is to wield Cosmo’s power as his own weapon. The lonely Cosmos meets Wyan and starts to feel as if he is no longer alone. Wyan follows the orders of King Thulu and Cosmo does not agree with the Kings genocidal actions, parting way. King Thulu cannot accept this and decimates the inhabitants of Cosmo’s favoured planets, unleashing Cosmo’s fury which cumulates in a battle of epic proportions.
I enjoyed this graphic novel, the illustrations were unique with the artist, Vassillis Gogtzilas, opting for an almost unfinished, sketchy look which added great detail when capturing the facial expression and anatomy of Cosmos and other beings. It also works great when depicting the raw power, intensity and velocity of Cosmo. The story written by D.J. Kirkbride is compelling, a tale of power and atonement, spanning the universe. A great graphic novel that I would definitely recommend.
