Our Bones Dust #2 Review:

In the second issue of this new series, we’re following an alien/AI who is cataloguing the ruined Earth, and a young child just trying not to be eaten by cannibals. They’re on a collision course, and things just get worse this time around.

“I love this book,” said host Justin Tyler. “The tone is so cool.”

In particular, Tyler is enjoying the primitive humans who have lost language, the intelligent aliens are “sort of chill” and in general the usage of language is “funny.” Plus, in this issue, “The villain they encountered is scary in the right way. The art is really dope… Ben Stenbeck doing both writing and art, digging Dave Stewart on colors… This is just one of my favorite books has been coming out.”

Pete LePage is also loving the book, calling everything with our AI/robot “kind of insane,” and everything with the kid we’re following “heartbreaking,” particularly when it comes to the dogs in the issue who are starving.

“I really love this book as well,” added Alex Zalben. “The art feels like the love child of Moebius meets Winsor McKay… I also really like the tone here. It’s very offhand, but there’s still… A lot of danger for our main characters, at the same time. Really, really good debut so far.”

Our Bones Dust #2 Official Synopsis:

The AI being named Attis might just be in time to save the feral kid from the family of cannibals hunting it. But there is something else. Something worse than cannibals. It is old and dangerous and insane. It’s not a conflict everyone will survive.
