SCIENCE FICTION REVIEW: Indigo Prime: Anthropocalypse - John Smith, Edmund Bagwell, Lee Carter

Release Date: 11/04/13
Publisher:  2000AD (Rebellion)


There are an infinite number of realities within the multiverse. With the risk dimensional instability as an ever-present threat, these parallel worlds all need to be managed; enter Indigo Prime, troubleshooting reality agents. So what do Indigo Prime want with Lance Corporal Danny Redman? Why is a Neanderthal walking around in modern Britain? How do you catch a dimension-jumping Bewilderbeast? And where in the multiverse is Spacesick Steve? All of these questions and more are answered in this mind-warping adventure from the fertile minds of John Smith and Edmund Bagwell, the team who brought you Cradlegrave, and Lee Carter (Judge Dredd, Greg Area).


A strange and weird trip into magick in the modern age as the past and present collide when a gift is opened within a soldiers mind though a terror attack. Its definitely strange and to be honest I liked the first part a lot more than the later as for me, it felt like it took a concept that was fascinating and flung it into the unknown.

Don’t get me wrong the storytelling worked wonderfully well, the artwork was beautiful and when added to the twisted minds at 2000AD, it all round was something that took you on an adventure but personally I’d have preferred it had they kept it to just the Neanderthal and the principle character. That was an idea I absolutely loved.
