Review: Untitled History of the Human Condition (Book One) by Michael Gatti

Untitled History of the Human Condition Book One by MICHAEL GATTI
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Could be strong 3-stars if it is edited properly. I am a bit thrown with this story because I have never encountered a graphic novel with so much prose, I’m sure there are some that have them but I've never seen them. I know that in graphic novels they do, do an exposition in the beginning to set the scene (something that this story could benefit from). Don’t get me wrong, this story has great potential and a unique idea but it needs editing! I was unable to detect any plot or character development for that matter something that maybe is not set to come until later installments but something that should have been present in the first installments. The writing is choppy; unfortunately, the author does not finish one thought before he has moved on to the next thought- there needs to be better transitions between background and story. As for the background, it was more of a research paper than a narrative, which is something that needs to be worked on. I will reiterate that the artwork was fantastic and the idea is very unique and should be pursued it just needs some TLC.

Thank you to the author for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
