Snow Fall #1 Review
The year is 2045 and it no longer snows. In humanity’s drive to save itself and the planet from climate change, its race to use untested technology proved disastrous. Now earth has no seasons. The United States divided but survives held together on a whim as the “Cooperative States of America” under the obviously corrupted and powerful Hazeltyne Corporation. The White Wizard has the power to control snow and is an apparent threat to Hazeltyne and their motives.
Snow Fall #1 comes from Image Comics, written by Joe Harris and drawn by Martin Morazzo, a team that worked previously on Great Pacific. It seems they like to tackle the political elements of climate change, which makes sense, some of the best works are created under the umbrella of current fears. Climate change is a hot and frightening topic, that some would argue is closer to reality than fiction.
Snow Fall #1 is an entertaining read, one that’s not as great as Brian K. Vaughn’s We Stand on Guard but it’s at least comparable. Hell, if I’m even putting Snow Fall in the same category as a Brian K. Vaughn title, that has to at least say something. It’s an interesting take on climate change and rebellion. Is the White Wizard a hero, terrorist, or just a boogyman.
