Rock & Stone #1 vol. 1 (review)
(Delcourt, July 2016)
Writer: Nicholas Jean
“Rock & Stone” #1 vol. 1 is a science fiction comic book written by Nicholas Jean, released digitally and in English by French publisher Delcourt.
The comic is set in the year 2215, on a human-colonized planet called Caldoria that has been ravaged by a war between humans and machines controlled by a rogue artificial intelligence. The story’s premise is nothing new: the theme of post-apocalyptic science fiction stories – particularly tales that focus on rebellious machines – is a well-trodden path. Fortunately, “Rock & Stone”’s appeal relies not on novelty, but upon execution.
