Thanks to Image Comics for the review copy!
Picking up after a few month break the techno sci-fi thriller of the year is back and hasn’t missed a beat! Tynion drops us into the aftermath of a world where the internet has been taken down and our central characters are now trying to move forward. This doesn’t mean the Undernet and PH34R are gone though. A shocking confrontation towards the end of the issue proves the origin of this deadly event may hit closer to home for Ellison than we initially thought.
Another fantastic issue! Tynion slows the horror and carnage down just a bit in this issue to allow his characters a chance to live and breathe in what’s possibly a new way of life moving forward. At least for the time being. From mourning lost partners, to treating the prior infected, and planning what moves need to be taken next on the world stage. We see all facets of life and how the events that have occurred have shaped their present lives.
I love the way Tynion continues to both build and explore this world as we work towards a solution or end to the central event in the story. It’s thoughtful and detailed while remaining unsettling and mysterious. Blanco and Bellaire continue to absolutely kill it on the colors and pencils. It’s been a gorgeous book from the start and I don’t expect anything less moving forward. There has been a lot of exploration on the subject of AI, social media, and the internet in general and their effects on our society and culture. While the immediate plot of this story may be fictitious by design, it continues to leave a lasting impression on just how disastrous and detrimental these things could be to our future and lives. At its heart, that is what makes W0RLDTR33 the scariest ongoing book on the shelves today. It’s the best new ongoing title of 2023 in my opinion. If you are not reading it, what are you waiting for??
My rating – 9/10 Great!!
W0RLDTR33 #6 is now available.
