Indie Comic Review: Sol Survivor




Hey comic family Comic Boss from Amerime Media and today we are talking Sol Survivor written by a great team over at Charon Comics.

The story opens up with a man slowly opening his eyes trying to figure out where he is then he smells a familiar sent he then realized
"Oh crap, I'm in the middle of a war."
While looking at a graveyard of soldiers, blood and death everywhere.
As he tries to make it back to the village to some form of civilization he spots the enemy unfortunately for him they spot him too. They let the puppies lose to go play with him. At this time he didn't feel like playing so he started running shot on of the little guys and feel off a cliff with the others.

One of the enemies was as disappointed as I was that they didn't get to play longer. One of them said. “They'll go find some other humans." he friend said
"That was the last one. He was the last human the rest has been wiped out!" As the mysterious man hears this he gives up and allows himself to sink in a river of blood and death.

Fast forward to five years. A group of smuggler's/pirates comes to the now a desolate planet where the human empire fell and was cleansed from the galaxy. Looking for an artifact but first, the captain of the group had to deal with some business.

It seems one of his crew members had been stealing since he brings him on board. And that will not do so they tie him to a tree while they work. Then you meet one of the members who were responsible for killing off the human race and his friend that explains they lost because the humans spread they self to thin across the galaxy and if they were smarter it would be them ruling universe. As they talk a female member of the gang spots someone hiding in the bushes a little scuffle happens and she shoots him in the arm then brings him to the captain who looks like a samurai pitbull. With this new turn of events, the captain asks him
"do he wants to leave the planet with them after their done."Of course, he accepts then ask
"What do I have to do"
"Kill this traitor. If you kill him you take his place on my crew then I'll give you a ride once we're done here" the thief is cut loose both are given knives and a fight to the death happens our main character is cut badly and has a bullet wound too. But, manages to kill the thieving bug and right after passed out due to blood loss.

After they bring him on the ship they take his helmet off to find out it's a human they last one of his kind. Arguments followed up with some wanting to dump him harboring a human is a felony. Others want to keep him to study him. Some wanted to kill him and be done with it. The doctor just wanted to save him which the captain agreed after he came to the doctor realized he didn't have any scars from his battles. The captain told him
  “I'll protect you as long as you're a member of this crew and I'll drop you off once they get back to port. But tell me what is your name"
  ‎As he put his helmet back on he said

"Call me Sol."

If your a fan of SciFi with a post-apocalyptic vibe then this is definitely for you. This one was on my buy list for a minute I missed the Kickstarter so I had to wait until it released but this was such a great story and the artwork is amazing. This is definitely a series I will follow also don't forget Charon Comics has a awesome catalog of comics that are just as great as Sol Survivor I urge you to go check it out
