Afrika, by Hermann



Kudos to Dark Horse Comics for bringing Hermann's brilliant AFRIKA to American audiences. Hopefully, it'll be the first of many such beautiful hardcover presentations. I won't spoil the plot of the book, which centers on Dario Ferrar, caretaker of a Tanzanian wildlife preserve, but I will say that the book provides enough mystery, intrigue, and chase-oriented action to satisfy most mature comic-book readers. The art is gorgeous, and the book would be worth the cover price just to see Hermann's lush representation of the African wildlife. Highly recommended.
