Book Review: Retrovirus


The story opens up 38,888yrs ago with cavemen warring with each other. It then shoots back to the present day with the main character, -- Wallace.

She works on retroviruses and meets up with two men who have something of high interest to her. They won't give her all the details but what she sees definitely gets her blood boiling. She wants in and is whisked away to Antarctica to join other scientists studying, "Ringo". -- finds out really quick that the company she is now working for, BioPharm, has not been up front with her. Actually nobody has as all the other scientists also know things are not on the up and up.

They drawing style is very classic comic book. There were some moments the illustrations got a little rough, but it didn't break the flow of the story. This comic definitely plays on our fears of germs and the havoc they can wreak. It was a good short read, so you should pick it up!
