Review BY Abby Adams
Book Three, “Brother Leon” brings a new writer and a darker tone. The narrative shifts away from the Planetary Council to a young and struggling European Empire. The fate of religion in the post-nuclear world is addressed for the first time, and the reader learns far more about the devastating wars of the past. The violence in the writing and illustrations is visceral throughout, but well-handled and never veers into unnecessary gore. This book brings in more humor as well, which is welcome alongside some of the heavier themes. “Brother Leon” readily delves into questions about freedom and terrorism, whether and when violence is justified, and what turns people into monsters. The illustrations are particularly rich in this installment and help give it additional depth.
