THE VOICE OF THE LOST AND FORGOTTEN
|Warning: Comic Contains Adult Content|
Welcome back to another adrenaline pumped review at Comic Unknown. Inspired by the Sin City-esque art style, we enter the world of Only One Of Us. The tale follows Adrestia, a savage and fearless vigilante that is fueled by the vengeance of those who cannot defend themselves. As she uncovers a secret organization only known as Be Ruse, she begins to see the corrupt and violent atrocities they perform including human trafficking. Adrestia strikes and batters her way through the organization to try to uncover the answers she's looking for. Instead of asking questions first and maybe beating them later, she quite literally is beating the hell out of the bad guys as she gathers her information. As stated earlier, Only One of Us's art style is comparable to that of Sin City: black and white with shadows and sprays of color (with the colors usually being red for blood or yellow for the eyes on Adrestia's mask).
The series is action-packed and holds back no punches. It is very entertaining to see how ruthless Adrestia is with criminals even when the odds are against her. From child labor and human trafficking to even a rape scene, Any One Of Us can be a tough pill to swallow for some. The story brings out Adrestia's agony at times and reminds the reader that she as human as anyone else. We are hopeful to see what new obstacles Adrestia defeats to achieve her goal. Currently on its fifth issue, Any One of Us is expected to be a 10 issue story arc. Killian McKellen and Nikita Vasilchuk do a great job keeping the readers staring down the pages and giving them the reason to binge the series with a fistful of savageness. The series can be purchased through Vengeance Comics and readers can find updates on Vengeance Comics including Adrestia and her mission on both Twitter and Instagram.
