Billionaire Island - di Mark Russell
« il: 13 Novembre 2019, 00:52:10 »


  • BILLIONAIRE ISLAND, a 6 issue mini-series by acclaimed writer Mark Russell (Second Coming) and artist Steve Pugh (Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass), and colorist Chris Chuckry, with lettering by Rob Steen. Issue 1 features a cover by series artist and co-creator Steve Pugh and a variant cover by bestselling artist Pia Guerra (Y The Last Man).

    Debuting in March 2020.

    Welcome to Billionaire Island, where anything goes…if you can afford it. But the island’s ultra-rich inhabitants are about to learn that their ill-gotten gains come at a VERY high price. BILLIONAIRE ISLAND is a savage satire that reunites the creative team behind DC’s The Flintstones.

    “BILLIONAIRE ISLAND tells the story of Freedom Unlimited (FU Island), a private island created and populated by billionaires hoping to wait out the end of the world,” said writer and co-creator Mark Russell. “But because they are in international waters and not subject to any law, their haven is a nightmarish police state for anyone on the island who crosses them. In a broader sense, it's a series that asks the question: how do we save the world when all its resources are partying offshore?”

  • Billionaire Island #1 (Published by Ahoy Comics; Review by Kat Calamia; ‘Rama Rating: 5 out of 10):

    In classic Mark Russell fashion, Billionaire Island tackles serious social issues through a satirical lens. It focuses on the unfair advantages of the One Percent, and the consequences the working class go through to live in a world the rich controls. There are a lot of interesting topics tackled in this premiere, but the story’s biggest downfall is that all of this is explained through exposition instead of character work. There was no true character to latch onto to help deliver some much-needed heart to the narrative. On artwork, Steve Pugh and Chris Chuckry do a great job at displaying the lavished life style of the rich, and the pure desperation the 99% go through to survive. I love the contrast between the brighter visuals to display these darker concepts. Billionaire Island #1 sets up an intriguing concept, but needs to work on its characters if it wants to be a truly extraordinary series.
