SYNOPSIS: Titan Comics 4 issue series Life Is Strange, is based on a popular video game. In which the main character Max, has some time bending abilities and because of this creates a giant hurricane that pretty much decimates her home town of Arcadia Bay. In this issue, a year has passed since the incident and the main character is faced with a decision to go back home and face the devastation she has caused.
STORY: This book is clearly for the fans of the video game series, personally I am not a gamer and have never played or even heard of this game. This book plus the first issue made me want to check out the game though. to me it is very intriguing, there are moments in both issues in which the main character Max is either having visions or time jumping or even jumping between possible timelines in separate dimensions. One of the main characters may be dead? Or not? Maybe a figment of Max’s imagination, it is not clear but has me riveted to find out what happens in the rest of the issues. I may be looking too deeply into what is going on but that’s the feeling I get from it. The story really flows well and even not being a fan of the game doesn’t really matter but may provide more insight into the events.
ART: The art is great in this book as well, it is cartoony a bit but I am a fan of cartoonish style artwork. The colors pop and the line work is on point!
In Conclusion, I plan to keep following this book to see where it leads I suggest you pick it up as well. After all its only 4 issues!!
4 out of 5 stars
