Welcome to a sci-fi fantasy world where a human befriends an android and ventures out through a mutant infested environment only known as Radiation Burn. Radiation Burn primarily focuses on the two friends Jedediah and Mictlantecuhtli (Mick for short). Jed and Mick are survivors in an irradiated wasteland far in the future where mutants and humans live together, somewhat. In such society in this bleak future, the duo have a tendency for self-preservation and persevere in these badlands. Radiation Burn Issue One has the two man/droid team on a downhill slope starting with a preemptive attack against them by a mutant. Fortunately, they were able to call in a bounty by bringing the mutant's head to town. Rumors start to circulate quickly about their victory, causing another mutant to retaliate. Push comes to shove and they survive the second attack but with a cost. The town they once knew is somehow destroyed while the duo was fighting the mutant. The situation went from bad to worse. and trouble has a way of following them throughout the comic causing new (mis)adventures to occur. This is just one story of the many in this issue, three more to be precise with each story having their own tale all leading back to Mick and Jed.
James Johnson illustrated and wrote this great and fun comic with plenty of adult humor. Radiation Burn Issue One is very fresh and has an engaging set of stories in all the right ways. The comic never hurts to be silly particularly when you're all grown up. The illustration is very playful which follows the theme of the comic overall making the reading experience clear and enjoyable. Given the setting is a post-apocalyptic world where humans and mutants destroy each other to survive, it still finds a way to be playful and satisfying. Johnson's comic is full of brilliant content in every chapter of the issue. Johnson has an ever changing style of narrative that is steadily keeping the reader enthralled. Radiation Burn is available for $1.99 on Comixology as well on WP Comics for both physical and digital copies. Don't forget to follow and support Radiation Burn through WP Comics and their Facebook.
