Graphic Review: The People Inside


Title: The People Inside

Publisher: Oni Press

Writer: Ray Fawkes

Artist: Ray Fawkes

Review: ★★★★☆

Comics, or illustrated stories, are not always superhero fan fiction. Such is the case with The People Inside from Ray Fawkes.   It features his unique take on relationships.

The story begins with a giant six panel spread. The panels breakdown throughout the graphic novel depending on how the stories progress. The story has an interesting narrative. There are no direct conversations between each character but merely thoughts. One word meanings to carry the story and emotions.

The artwork is simple black and white line drawings. The details are not that greatest, but the emotions it brought out for the story are spot on.  At times, I forgot I was even reading a comic. I was drawn into each panel and eager to find out what happens next. Several of the situations were  ones that I could even relate to. I can remember having some of the same conversations with my wife about our kids.

In the end, The People Inside is a really good read and I would recommend it if you want a break from the normal superhero smash up that you typically find on the stands.  What it does better than anything, is show the many different points of view when it comes to relationships.
