Year Zero is one of the first offerings from AWA: Artists, Writers & Artisans a publisher that was started just a couple of years ago by Axel Alonso, Bill Jemas and Jonathan Miller. And I have to say that if all of the books are as good as this one, look out Big Two there’s a new kid on the block and he brought some friends! Seriously folks after reading this book I felt like this is the breath of fresh air the medium needs so desperately. There is an emphasis on storytelling that is conspicuously absent from many of the mainstream publishers who tend to put characters first. This is not a good idea no matter how iconic those characters may be, they are not above the narrative.
