Mute Souls – This Isn’t Your Typical Comic


Mute Souls - This Isn't Your Typical ComicWhat if animals were given voices? I don’t mean in the “Polly want a cracker” sense, or even ala Dr. Doolittle. What if they could legitimately tell us what they were feeling? A bird of prey’s sense of superiority over the landscape, a cobra’s ability to flow like time, a dragonfly’s realization that insects would inherit everything, a housecat’s love of music…these are some of the themes that surface in Yramx’s Mute Souls.

It isn’t your typical comic—each vignette lasts only a few pages—but it is beautiful and thought-provoking. What if, rather than seeing animals as inferior to us, we could view animals as equals, or possibly even our superiors? The artwork, aside from the beautiful watercolors that delineate each new chapter, are black and white illustrations, but wonderfully detailed nonetheless and capture the spirit of each animal. It’s a unique book, and very enjoyable.

I give it 3.5 out of 5 Lightning Bolts.

Julie Hegner has been descending the geek rabbit hole since she watched her first episode of Star Trek at age eight. A longtime fan of Trek, Who, X-Files, and the Whedonverse, it was only a matter of time until hanging out with other geek girls and repeatedly watching Tom Hiddleston led her to the awesomeness of comics. She takes a special joy in reading about ladies who kick ass, but in general anything with a good storyline floats her boat. You can tweet @julz91 on Twitter.
