Biotope: Volume 2

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Synopsis

After the scientific base he was assigned to investigate blows up and almost everybody on it dies, Captain Toussaint finds himself wounded, lost, starving and alone in the middle of an endless jungle on a distant planet. More violence and more surprises await him in his claustrophobic and hostile new environment, and though he does find answers to his questions, the biggest question of all comes with an answer that has even this tough, crusty, unflappable cop shaken to the core. The chilling end to an environmental sci-fi thriller dripping with atmosphere. – Goodreads

Review

Thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

First and foremost, I did really like the end of this two book series. It was a little bleak, but it was honest and believable and I appreciate that the author didn’t try to shoehorn in an unrealistic ending where everything worked out perfectly.

Again, I really liked the art and the addition of the Doc character gave the forest scenes a very Ghibli feeling to them. The elk-headed character was also a nice artistic addition.

However, most of this volume was a pretty standard story with nothing that really stood out about it as particularly surprising or unique. Overall I did enjoy the series and would give it a total rating of 3.5 stars. I would recommend it to people who like sequential art comics.
