Arvid Nelson is the writer of Rex Mundi, the acclaimed DARK HORSE comic series focusing a quest for the Holy Grail told as a murder mystery. He also created Zero Killer, set in a world destroyed by nuclear war in 1973. He has written many successful titles for Dark Horse and Dynamite Entertainment.
This is interesting because it labels itself as a prequel, but most of the events of the story takes place 20 years after the events of the movie. The "prequel" parts are flashbacks of sorts. The story itself didn't reveal a whole lot to quite justify it's length, but it was still interesting nonetheless. The back of it has some "extra files" describing all the "animals" on the island, including some that dont show up in the movie or comic.
The pictures themselves seemed a little difficult to pick out details. I'm not sure if it's the material it is printed on, a lack of contrast in the art, or I'm just not used to it.
If you are into the character then you might like it anyways. I have to say the artwork is great. But there just isn't too much content in here from a story standpoint.
