A Review: THE LAST FALL #1

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of THE LAST FALL #1 from IDW Publishing. Tom Waltz writes, Casey Maloney draws and Dusty Yee colors.

Sgt. Marcus Fall is a soldier, and a good one. Scary good. He’s fighting in his world’s crusade to save its people from catastrophe, against another world with a technological advantage. The holy war has cost his people much, and it has cost Marcus more than his fair share. But his faith is wavering, and even he doesn’t know what will happen next.

The horror of war is a pretty big topic to tackle in any story. Adding religious doubt to it makes for some interesting and scary possibilities. Marcus is a likeable guy and a pitiable one, and he hasn’t found anyone who understands him yet. This leaves room for more cool characters to come along. And it’s all helped along by some really nice near-future battle art.

This book nicely combines cool battle action with a compelling story about a normal guy who’s starting to question what normal really means in his world. Definitely check this one out.

THE LAST FALL #1 is available now at your FLCS or at idwpublishing.com.
