Zorax12's "BRAINS: LEGEND OF RAGING FIRE" REVIEW

Hello everyone, my name is Xerocorpse Boomer and I have just finished with ZORAX12'S "BRAINS: THE LEGEND OF RAGING FIRE". It is a somewhat campy and somewhat horrific comic series that focuses around a world where felines run the planet.
The color pallet used is actually quite beautiful, with shadows and highlights it is pleasing to the eye. Even when the kitties are fighting each other, the use of fading and action lines make it much more intense!
The characters (while still in early stages of the comic) are well rounded and identifiable. You can relate to each character in different ways because the situations they find themselves in are all that we have been in as well (mostly). For example, we have all had to deal with bullies, and indifference towards situations that are presented to us, Zorax12 reflects this perfectly through dialog and pacing throughout the chapter.
I find the story rather strong, it is a unique concept I have never heard before and it kept my attention while I was reading . I am not saying no one has ever made a story like this, just that this is the first one that has presented this kind of concept to me. The situations we find our "heroes" in is rather polarizing. It kept me asking myself what would I do in their situation? When a comic makes you ask questions like this, it means they are doing something right, very good job!
While the story is good and the layout and color choices are quite masterful, it is the wording I am having trouble with. Zorax12 left the word bubbles somewhat invisible (you can literally see the background inside the word bubbles) and it makes reading the dialog extremely difficult. I had to keep tilting my screen just to read what they were saying, especially during night panels.
And then you have one certain character that I am guessing has an accent because there are so many misspellings it made my brain hurt. Even some wording that comes across completely different, with said accent. Also, there are a couple misspellings that are obviously accidental (I think) because everything else beside the misspelled word is spelled correctly.

Overall, I enjoyed this comic! It's cute, it's fun, and it still gives me my gore fix near the end! (something I was not expecting seeing all the cuteness kitties running around!) This is a purrrfect comic story for horror buff cat lovers around the world! It's a colorful action packed comic that will leaving you oozing for more! If kitties in a kinda post apocalyptic world sounds like your cup of tea, give ZORAX12'S "BRAINS: LEGEND OF RAGING FIRE" a chance, it just may have you mutating for more!

I moved your review to its own thread. The "Post reviews here" thread's title refers to the forum, the thread itself is just meant for rules and questions about the forum, not for reviews.
