Comic book writers Chuck Dixon and Benjamin Henderson team-up with artist Jimbo Salgado for Ravage- Kill All Men issue 1. The comic book was originally released under the Cautionary Comics banner, but a recent crowdfunding campaign showed it is under Fanatic Comics.
Manuel “Manny” Mendez recruits his friend Randall Gunn to go with him to find a legendary Panther species he thinks his deceased father discovered. Following his father’s coordinates, they crash on an island, and to their surprise, they find a secret city called Protectori. An isle of warrior women who seem welcoming. The two veterans think they have found paradise, but little do they know that these women have nefarious purposes for their visitors.
Jimbo Salgado and colorist Bryan Arfeel Magnaye make the characters jump off the page. They show off so much talent with the character designs that make everything pop right off of the page. Aside from the characters, the backgrounds are incredibly sharp, especially with the way Protectori is designed.
Also, the story is a good hook. Chuck Dixon and Benjamin Henderson do not underscore their talent and I cannot wait to see what is next for this saga. Now, this is not a story for kids. The writers have given it a “Mature Audiences” warning and it should be acknowledged. That being said, I have a feeling it is going to be a thrill ride.
