Manticore is set inside the worst unit of a maximum security prison. Fish is the newest prisoner until a transfer from Gitmo arrives. Then the bodies start piling up. Why are the prisoners given experimental, and possibly psychotropic, drugs? Does that explain the deaths?
This is a good psychological thriller with horror elements. I believe that one image in particular will stay with me for awhile. The artwork is fine. The plot is fantastic. The characters are clearly defined and most of their back stories are shown. However, some of the lettering was too small and blurry to read on my Kindle or iPad.
This graphic novel would be good for fans of The Walking Dead because both are plot-driven horror.
