Wildfire Volume 1 - Matt Hawkins, Linda Sejic

*Book source ~ A review copy was provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.


Dr. Dan Miller is a plant biologist working for a company trying to accelerate plant growth in an effort to relieve world hunger. However, when a demonstration for the press results in unintended and unexpected consequences, the city of L.A. goes up in flames. It’s up to Dan to find a solution before the whole world burns.


This story appealed to me because I’ve been hearing about GMO foods for awhile now. I like the spin this novel takes on what could happen, but then I like apocalyptic-type books. Watching L.A. go up in flames and the possible emergency response is definitely interesting and the story held my attention. Dan is a small cog in a big machine, but people are counting on him and he has to step up. He does a good job holding it together for a peon suddenly in the spotlight. The illustrations are fantastic and the information at the end helpful. All-in-all an entertaining graphic novel.
