PREVIEW

Last of the Irin: Volume 1

A mysterious web comic, part fantasy, part science fiction, that looks set to follow an epic battle between Heaven and Hell.

I’ve seen a preview of the first volume of this trilogy, an epic graphic novel called Last of the Irin, that’s currently being published online at lastoftheirin.com. So while I suspect it’s the kind of thing that Grovel readers might be interested in, you don’t have to take my word for it, just go and have a look yourselves.

It’s a science fiction fantasy story that, at first glance, looks dark, violent and very compelling. Opening in 591BC, when gods still walked the Earth, it quickly jars from fantasy to sci-fi, as technology, advanced weaponry, biological warfare and all sorts of other cool things get added to the mix.

The story is set to take in the Earth-bound battle between God and the Devil, from ancient times through to the present day, where the balance of power seemingly lies in the hands of a young Armenian refugee called Anahita.

I’m expecting to do a full review of this first volume soon but, in the mean time, why not head over to lastoftheirin.com and let me know what you think in the comments, below?

  1. Wow, that site is really pretty. Definitely created with some modern techniques. I was really impressed by the landing page. The art is gorgeous.

    There was something off-putting about reading on the site though. Clicking on the image made it fit the browser but did not zoom it all the way in. I needed to click on the magnifying glass icon for full image size. I guess I’m just spoiled by the options a dedicated comic reader app brings.
