Graphic Novel Review : Pariah #1 by Aron Warner

Aron Warner's Pariah #1 (Of 4)
E-book available at Sea Lion Books for $3.99
Pre-order (Comic) at for $2.99
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal

Brent Marks is not a freak. He’s one of the “Pariah”, a group of teens who become extremely intelligent after being cured of a genetic disorder. Although in most ways a normal teen, Brent is considered dangerous and is tracked down by the government who see these kids as an enormous threat.

The storyline of this book has great potential, but the storytelling lacks depth. Brent Marks is a highly intelligent Vitro, and his appearance is generally that of a nerd. None of his classmates actually pay attention to his presentation even though he's having a great point.

When an explosion occurs at the Marinus Laboratories, a deadly toxin is released into the air, and the Vitros are accused of bombing the place. They are also accused of terrorism and genocide. What will happen to Brent Marks?

I didn't really like the artwork of the book. I find the lines to be messy and has not much appeal to the eye of the reader. The colours, though vibrant, gives me an impression of being too fantastical and unrealistic. I hope the next installment will be better than this one.

Rating: 3
