The Thriller Graphic Novel “Eden” Has An Innovative Plot
The newly-released ComiXology graphic novel (series) “Eden” is one of the most notable thriller comics we have read this year: we wouldn’t be surprised at all if Eden becomes a movie or wins an award.
The story is filled with big ideas, complex characters, and a plot filled with twists & turns. Arnold is a master storyteller. We seriously think everyone who reads Eden will be hooked.
In Eden, two convicts, senator Anna Croft, and her sheriff husband, Ben, are sentenced to twenty-five years to life in a newly constructed cryogenic penal facility for a crime they claim they didn’t commit. Due to a malfunction, however, Anna, Ben and a few others are accidentally released.
Once free, the escapees discover that they’ve been frozen for thousands of years, and are the only survivors in a catastrophic future, where prehistoric creatures walk the Earth once more.
Given a second chance, the fugitives are forced to create a new society and must decide whether or not to release the rest of the imprisoned criminals in order to survive.
Under Anna’s leadership, can these ‘bad seeds’ actually seed a new and better world, or are they doomed to repeat the mistakes of humanity’s checkered history?
…we wouldn’t be surprised at all if Eden becomes a movie or wins an award.
The story is written by Matthew Arnold and the rest of members behind the project are: Will Dennis (Editor), Riccardo Burchielli (Cover Art, Artist), Luca Salce (Colorist), and Ed Dukeshire (Letterer).
