Blackacre #1
Written by Duffy Boudreau
Art by Wendell Cavalcanti
Cover by Michael Avon Oeming
Image Comics
Release Date: December 5th, 2012
Price: $2.99

Blackacre #1 from Image Comics is best described as a futuristic version of Apocalypse Now, and takes the apocalypse part of the title to heart. The first issue establishes the background of the titular Blackacre community, a town of the future established by a group of wealthy individuals just as the rest of society was crumbling around them. Most of the issue is spent on world building and introducing the reader to a certain Captain Hull, who by issues end is sent into the wild to find a rogue former agent of Blackacre.

Like I said, most of the issue is spent showing the reader what the nature of the world is and also who Hull is. There’s a little bit of action, but it’s more about the world building. Which is good and all, but I wonder if a bit of the world building could have been skipped or shortened. All the talking slows down the issue by a great deal and makes this a bit of a chore to read.
