Spire-001-A

The Spire #1 by Simon Spurrier and Jeff Stokely mix a post-apocalyptic world and a murder mystery. But does it work? Definitely, yes.

The story is set in a post-apocalyptic world and revolves around a murder mystery. If you’re familiar with what these two elements bring then you’ll be surprised by how Simon Spurrier executes them in this comic. Almost every part of this comic is quirky when it comes to characters especially their dialogue which is complimented by Steve Wands on how he indicates characters’ whispering to themselves in a conversation. Another highlight with Simon’s writing is that his world building seen here is one of the things you can’t wait to see unfold with all the different types of characters roaming around in this issue.

For the art, Jeff Stokely’s work both contrasts and compliments Simon’s writing. Jeff’s characters are good and the facial expressions are expressive. The contrasting part in his art is how he indicates the shadows by using a lot of lines which makes some scenes gritty. As for the colouring by Andre May he uses warm colors throughout the whole issue which also compliments this post-apocalyptic setting and Jeff Stokely’s work as well.

Overall, The Spire #1 makes as a fun post-apocalyptic set story with all the quirkiness and world building potential but also balances itself out with the artwork as well as the ending of this first issue which definitely makes you want to read the next one.
