Based on the world of Arthur Slade’s Hunchback Assignments, Modo: Ember’s End follows the titular character on a new adventure. Modo has been trained by the British to be a secret agent and is about to find more action than he can handle in the wild-west town of Ember’s End.
Shh. You had me at steampunk.
I was privileged enough to have aided the kickstarter for this graphic novel. It just arrived in the mail, with some amazing artwork on the side! I wanted to read it right away, but I was afraid to mark up the cover with fingerprints. I just about gave it the white glove treatment!
I wish I could tell you where to purchase it, but my own copy is a limited edition. I am the proud owner of #34 of 2000 printed. I’m not sure what the authors’ intentions are for the future of the book, which is really unfortunate. I’ll definitely be keeping my eyes out for any future releases in this series.
Great characters, tremendous script, phenomenal artwork. A must read.
The worst was supposed to be over. We were reunited after a decade apart. We were discovering the truth of our past. We were training and getting stronger every day. We were even happy…
We never imagined the Mogodorians could turn one of our own against us. We were fools for trusting Five. And now Eight is lost forever. I would do anything to bring him back, but that’s impossible. Instead, I will do whatever it takes to destroy every last one of them.
I’ve spent my entire life hiding from them, and they’ve stolen everything away from me. But that stops now. We’re going to take the battle to them. We have a new ally who knows their weaknesses. And I finally have the power to fight back.
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
Number Three in Kenya.
And Number Eight in Florida.
They killed them all.
I am Number Seven.
I will make them pay.
Every time I pick up one of these books, several thoughts run through my head. First, is that there’s no way that this book will live up to my expectations. This one, for sure, will be the flop. The failure. I’m always wrong, of course. Every single book in this series has been outstanding, with no sign of slowing down.
The other thought that runs through my mind is, This is the end. This is the last book in the series. So far I’ve been wrong about that too, but it can’t stay that way forever! I would read a thousand books in this series! They’re always over too soon, and the wait between books is too long!
I can’t recommend this series enough. For fans of sci fi, ya, action, and just generally being entertained.
