Polar: The Kaiser Falls is a flat-out masterpiece of a graphic novel. It is gritty, compelling, unapologetically beautiful visual storytelling and features the best of everything this medium has to offer.
It’s been a while since an entirely new series had me this intrigued and hyped. Invisible Kingdom #1 gave me whiffs of Firefly, Dune, Avatar, and Saga, and yet presented a story that was unique in both its tone and visual style. The first issue does an amazing job of setting the scene, presenting some of the themes that the series seems set to tackle (consumerism, class/race dynamics, and self-determinism vs. destiny), and introducing us to a rather diverse cast of characters with possibly conflicting or converging interests and agendas.
