Transhuman - Jonathan Hickman I loved this.It is part of a series yet each volume has an independent story, so you don't miss out anything background-wise on some characters if you only read one of them, like I did.I love this.You pick it. Open it and start checking out the pages and the first thing that crosses your mind is: "webdesign". This comic looks like a website! Indeed, not only the design of the covers of the chapters calls out for the web user in me, but along the story there's little details that keep evoking the web. Very... wiki-like! I friggin' love it.The story is all about transhumanism in a documentary style. It's as if we, the reader, are watching a doc, years past the events of the story. It's not just that, though. What makes me really love it is how it all revolves around genetics, mutations, experiments, human nature, post-humans and... well, see for yourself. Disregard the foreword and pick it up. Read it. :D
