Necropolis, Just Wow!

I had read about this series on a few websites, but was very hesitant to give it a read. The title, to me, indicated a type of horror story. This, however, was not the case. The story is a revenge tale and over a year in the making. The artwork is absolutely incredible and the writing is some of the best I have seen through out the world of webcomics.

Anyone who has read the Watchmen graphic novel will feel very familiar in the panels of necropolis. The series is by Jake Wyatt, and his art is very reminiscent of Dave Gibbons, the artist for the Watchmen. The characters are detailed and the colors are slightly muted giving the story and over all melancholy feel. Anyone who is a fan of gibbons works will likely come to love this story.

My favorite part of this tale, by far, is the writing. Each description is detailed and poetic, reminiscent of a good book. The writing sucks you in and keeps you wanting more. It is hard to come by a quotable piece in the world of comic books and webcomics, but this piece is just that. Definitely give this story a read if you have time, I have posted a link to the on going story below. As always, Enjoy!
