Children are changing into monsters right out of a Lovecraft story and no one knows why or how to stop it. Project: Behemoth, headed up by Major Rayne, doesn’t care about any of that. He sees the children as weapons to be trained and pointed at the enemy. Behemoth takes fear and anger embodied by the mutants of X-Men – considering both Kipiniak and Woodward worked on X-Books in the past so the influence is evident – and mixes it with feral creatures whom we will undoubtedly grow to love, from Clive Barker’s Nightbreed, to create a wholly engaging story from start to finish.
Woodward’s art is gorgeous and compliments Kipiniak’s writing organically. Jesse Post’s lettering on this book is as big a star as the writing and the art. The themes of this book are handled in a gut wrenching manner like a parent’s fear of losing a child and a child’s fear of their bodies changing as they mature. Everything about this book blends beautifully together.
