Nobody's ever really explained the Spill. Was it an angelic visitation? A nanotech accident? A porthole opening from another world? Whatever it was, no one's allowed in the Spill Zone these days except government scientists and hazmat teams. But a few intrepid explorers know how to sneak through the patrols and steer clear of the dangers inside the Zone. Addison Merrick is one such explorer, dedicated to finding out what happened that night, and to unraveling the events that took her parents and left her little sister mute and disconnected from the world.
Before we share our thoughts on the first installment, we want to share a picture that was inspiration for this story taken by artist Alex Puvilland when he was doing research for this book in Poughkeepsie.
I have to tell you that I can see just how this inspired the story!
I am going to admit that I am a newbie to the graphic novel world… I’ve read a couple and want to read more, so when the opportunity to read Spill Zone by Scott Westerfeld arose I jumped at the chance!
Before I mention the story, I have to talk about the art… It’s just incredible you guys and Alex Puvilland did an amazing job conveying all the creepiness and suspense in every frame!
The story itself is so creepily fantastic that I can’t wait for more. There’s been a spill of some sort, no one knows what exactly happened but the city has been cordoned off and no one is allowed inside… Addison doesn’t let that stop her from going in and taking pictures of the crazy things that inside! She has rules though and she sticks to them… until she’s made an offer she can’t decline, one that will provide for her and her sister for the rest of their lives.
This story has a disturbing doll, weird meat puppet people, crazy unexplainable creatures, and lots of suspense and intrigue and I’ll be waiting impatiently for the second installment!
