My Review

⭐⭐⭐⭐


"Resonant" is a gripping post-apocalyptic graphic novel that delves deep into the human psyche, exploring the chilling consequences when moral restraints dissolve, and chaos reigns supreme. In "Resonant," David "DB" Andry weaves a gripping post-apocalyptic graphic novel that takes readers on a harrowing journey through a world where humanity's darkest impulses are unleashed with terrifying consequences. The stellar illustrations by Ale Aragon and Skylar Patridge further enhance the tale.

Set in a dystopian future, a decade after the catastrophic Waves hit, the story follows Paxton, a single father of three, as he ventures out from the safety of their secluded haven to procure medicine for his chronically-ill son. However, what begins as a routine trip quickly spirals into a nightmarish ordeal as Paxton and his children find themselves separated and facing untold dangers.

The narrative of "Resonant" masterfully blends elements of horror, survival, and psychological tension reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" and Homer's "The Odyssey," with a grim atmosphere akin to "The Walking Dead." As the characters navigate through a world overrun by their own unchecked impulses, the story poses thought-provoking questions about the nature of humanity and the fragility of societal norms.


One of the graphic novel's greatest strengths lies in its richly detailed artwork, which vividly brings to life the desolate landscapes and the haunting encounters faced by the characters. The collaboration between Andry, Aragon, and Patridge ensures that every panel is imbued with a sense of urgency and dread, drawing readers deeper into the unfolding drama.

Moreover, "Resonant" is not just a thrilling read; it also offers poignant moments of emotional depth, particularly in Paxton's unwavering determination to reunite with his children amidst the chaos. This emotional core adds complexity to the narrative, elevating it beyond a mere tale of survival to a profound exploration of love, sacrifice, and resilience in the face of adversity.


The complete series, collected in a deluxe trade paperback omnibus, treats readers to the full scope of the story, accompanied by a foreword from Gerard McMurray, further enhancing the experience. With its interesting storytelling, stunning artwork, and thematic depth, "Resonant" is a must-read for post-apocalyptic fiction and graphic novel fans. It's a chilling reminder of the fragility of civilization and the enduring power of the human spirit in the darkest of times.
