Well, it appears that Matt Forbeck has done it again, and produced a quality piece of writing that is not only unique, but which manages to use multiple characters, dedicating a mini-chapter to each one.
I like to read about superheroes, after all, who doesn’t? But Forbeck has taken the usual format and broken the mold. Some readers, including me, would liken the story of Brave New World: Revolution
to the X-Men. The superheroes are all mutants, and there is the usual battle between the on the side of the government and those resisting the government.
This is where Forbeck makes things different. The characters that he builds are complex, and as the story progresses you realise that not everyone is resisting because they want to, and not everyone is fighting for the government because they want to either.
For me, this makes the story different enough to be interesting, and learning about the different powers and how the mutants use them in conjunction with each other was enough to keep me reading my copy. I’ll happily admit that if a book isn’t deemed worthy of my attention, then I will struggle to finish it, or will do so whilst reading other books. Not this one, Brave New World: Revolution
is a superhero adventure that will grab you by the balls and set you swinging. In an enjoyable way of course.
