We spend a lot of time with the lost animals in the fourth issue of Primordial, with the primates (and dog!) trying to make their way home – while back on Earth, Dr Pembrook and Yelena try to make contact with them.
Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino’s six-issue mini-series is a genuinely gripping read, with the plight of the animals and their attempts to make sense of their situation being incredibly endearing. The Earth-set action is tense and well handled, with some shocking developments to take us into the last few issues of the story.
Sorrentino’s art continues to blow my mind, with phenomenal attention to detail on the realistic animals and people, as well as jaw dropping layouts in the more abstract environments beyond our world.
Primordial is a comic that hasn’t put a foot wrong so far; though I’m looking forward to reaching the end of the story, given where we leave things at the end of issue 4, I’m not sure I’m going to like where it ends up…
