The Big Bang created us but a bigger bang destroyed us but out of the ashes comes a new hero.
The official description from IDW:
The Big Bang created all life as we know it. The Bigger Bang creates just one: a being named Cosmos. Is he a destroyer? A hero? A god? All he knows is that he’s completely alone in what was our universe… so he seeks out another where he’ll try to atone for the sins of his mysterious creation. From the inventive minds of D.J. Kirkbride (Amelia Cole, Never Ending) and Vassilis Gogtzilas (Augusta Wind) comes a sprawling space-epic of multi-dimensional proportions.
Wow, Awesome, Interesting, What?, are just some the words that I said while reading the first issue “The Bigger Bang”. When I was assigned to read this, I kind of through it off because it seemed like a new origin and just an odd idea but I will tell you I was dead wrong. This comic is about guilt, loneliness, and more but delves into in a very interesting way, that I found completely different from any other comic at the moment. The comic deals with a new superhero named Cosmos, who was created by a bigger bang that wiped out humanity. It is really about him just going through the universe doing good but dealing with all these emotional issues while doing it. It is just really cool and you really get a feel for what this character is experiencing. I can’t recommend it enough.
D.J. Kirkbride has sold me on his writing. The narrative for this comic is quick, sad, and has great perspective for this lonely character. I couldn’t believe what I felt within the first issue and that rocks.
Vassilis Gogtzilas has an interesting art style. It is not nice and neat but really rough and blends together but it works. It adds to the emotions that the character is feeling and we feel them in his face and body language.
The Bigger Bang is an amazing comic that I recommend everyone to read.
