Synopsis:

On an Earth transformed by supernova radiation, Kulkan, last warrior king of the mutant Neanderthal “Skybearers”, faces devastation at the hands of the rampaging Australopith “Moon Clan”. A lunar apparition has fuelled the Clanês bloodlust, but the scientifically advanced Skybearers realize they are witnessing the first sign of the mutating supernovaês resultant shockwave – a devastating force_set to obliterate the world it once transformed. Set in an age outside of time, FUTURE PRIMITIVE is a spectacular, dynamic, and hallucinatory stonepunk adventure that follows Kulkan as he battles for the survival of his civilization and to preserve their “Memory of Being” – the sacred cave images relaying Skybearer history and myths – and in which he will find a clue.

Review:

I was intrigued by Future Primitive’s premise and the story did not disappoint.

The plot is one that I have yet to read before and I love the originality of it. The pacing of the story is well balanced and each scene moves to the next with great fluidity. The artwork is spectacular and captures the brutality, hallucinogenic visions, and noble endeavors of all the characters involved. While reading I was very immersed in the story and as I read it on my Kindle, I noticed the colorist’s excellent work.  Whether the colors where vibrant, dark, etc. they all shone through and helped set the tone of each scene.

Future Primitive is an awesome original story that takes our primitive ancestors and gives them a futuristic twist.

5/5
