This would be 25 Star rounded up to 3 for Goodreads This is a hard book to rate because the story is decent but the art is pretty bad Everything feels really flat and static Even when action is taking place it doesn't feel fluid it looks like people are holding poses instead of a snapshot of action taking place I looked up both the artist and colorer and their work is good so I'm not sure what happened here There are some short stories in the back of the book that add to the world Each story is drawn by a different artist and the art is so much better in these stories The Wilds takes place in an apocalyptic future where a bacteria has transformed a large part of the population into flower like zombies These creature just want to spread their disease to other humans and will eventually style down to becoming a part of nature I thought the set up of these creatures was pretty interesting but they are basically just a plot point for the story of the actual survivors Society has moved to Shelters which seems to be a pretty normal way of life There are Runners who are basically indentured servants who make cargo runs between different Shelters and scrounge the wild for food and supplies Runners and other people in the shelter start to go missing and the story goes from there I don't want to post any spoilers but I though the story became pretty generic from there on I understand the story the author wants to tell but I found the world of plant creatures interesting and nothing really happened with them A major plus for this book is the diversity of characters Unlike many apocalyptic stories the Shelters are very diverse in age race backgrounds and sexuality it isn't just a bunch of 20 30 year old white people But for an apocalyptic world everything is surprisingly clean and well kept the roads are all clear the buildings are all intact there aren't pop up military zones and everyone's clothes look like they just came off the rack It is unclear how much times has passed but based of one of the short stories it has been making 5 6 years But there are no problems of food medicine or technology breaking down I think this book is a pass unless you find a good bargain on it

After a cataclysmic plague sweeps across America survivors come together to form citystate like communities for safetyDaisy Walker is a Runner for The Compound a mix of post apocalyptic postal service and black market salvaging operation It is a Runner’s job to ferry items and people between settlements and on occasion scavenge through the ruins of the old w. Years ago there was a plague The afflicted became abominations zombie like creatures with an affinity for nature Today humans scrounge for survival living off the leavings of the old world and doing whatever it takes to stay alive Daisy Walker is a Runner She works for the Compound salvaging supplies and fighting abominations It's a hard life but she is determined to help people and this is the best way that she knows how One day while she's on a run she finds a man being attacked by abominations She knows that the wise choice would be to leave him and keep herself safe but she's not that person She saves him and brings him back to the Compound Little does she know that simple act of mercy will change everything I thought there was a lot to like about this comic There's a lot of diversity which I think is probably how it ended up on my to read list but doesn't feel too forced We get people of all races and sexualities including a main character who's in a relationship with another woman but it's a very casual inclusion with no real commentary It's just the way that it is which I liked Daisy the main character was very likable for me She's tough and no nonsense but she clearly cares for her people and is a leader among them Her relationship with Heather is loving without being saccharine and they're both complex characters in their own right Beyond Heather and Daisy there's a pretty nice ensemble cast Each of the Runners gets little moments to shine which I really liked Despite this only being one volume long I actually ended up a lot attached than I expected and I got a bit teary at the end which is a sign that the characters were really done right for me I think part of what helped this along was the short stories at the end of each chapter where the Runners exchange stories of their most impressive run That really gave some space for each character to grow and become someone to be attached to and I liked it a lot The setting isn't terribly uniue in this day and age but I really liked the plant spin on the zombies They made for really cool covers and were pretty creepy to see on the page and I liked the man vs nature vibe that it gave the story The art was mostly enjoyable for me although I did find some of the lines on character's faces made me a bit confused about ages and a bit of the action was hard to follow Likewise I occasionally thought the story was a bit hard to follow especially as it drew close to the ending Still I got things figured out in the end and the commentary on community and consent was pretty spot on In short I enjoyed it Recommended

The Wilds 1 5Orld Daisy is the best there is at what she doesOut beyond the settlement walls are innumerable dangers feral animals crumbling structures and Abominations those that were touched by the plague and became something other After a decade of surviving Daisy isn’t phased by any of it until her lover another Runner named Heather goes missing on a job Desperat. It's The Walking Dead crossed with The Last of Us but instead of focusing on the dire end of the world environment the story is primarily about labor relations Oh sure I guess it's eventually revealed that a band of scientists are trying to cureuse the flower zombies but the first half of The Wilds is narrowly focused on Runners apocalypse couriers complaining about how they're treated by higher ups at the CompoundIt's dull as hell And despite the copious amount of dialogue I couldn't tell you a single thing about any of the characters Same goes for the world building Vita Ayala dropped a page of backstory at the beginning of each issue yet by the end of the book I still had no idea how the flower zombie world worked Besides the fact that there are Runners and that they are unhappy of courseThe art in The Wilds did no favors to Ayala's limp storytelling The colors and designs were flat and static truly boring pictures to look at A reminder The Wilds takes place on a post apocalyptic Earth How can you make that setting so unappealing and ugly I should have put this down after the first issue but instead read on just to see how bored I could be
