    1 thought on “Surgeon X: The Path of Most Resistance

    1. Overstuffed, unsubtle, riddled with pacing problems, obviously a first time work which is to say sort of amateurish , tries to be hard hitting but comes across as superficial, the soap operatic family drama elements weren t helping nor executed elegantly , balloon placement order was a problem, occasionally even punctuation, which was a disappointment since I had high hopes for this series based mostly on the presence of talents I ve enjoyed in the past, specifically artist Watkiss and editor Be [...]

    2. I now believe life is a privilege, not a right As a doctor, this thought scares the shit out of me A vision of London in 20 years time, caught between terrorist attacks, the rise of the right and growing antibiotic resistance In many ways it s all too plausible opening on a view of Westminster Bridge s west side has an extra resonance now it didn t when the first issue dropped Wellcome funding and than 20 medical and scientific consultants confirm the science as sound, but sadly the fiction is [...]

    3. Straight out of the fevered minds of the British comes this action comic Set not too far in the future, it seems free health care for all didn t work Now people are immune to antibiotics and the working antibiotics are scarce and rationing is occurring I am sure this was meant to make some kind of social impact It was lost on me As was the story So the hero is a doctor who helps people without insurance Um that s about it Oh and she often, multiple times, mentions something about the % of women [...]

    4. An interesting premise with poor execution Set in Great Britain 20 years in the future, bacteria have become resistant to antibiotics The government had become far right and is rationing medicine to the poor Surgeon X is fed up and quits her job to provide private surgery for anyone who needs it The plot jumps all over the place without a clear narrative throughout Crazy things like a mayoral candidate s wife murdering his opponent at a debate are conveniently forgotten after the first issue I f [...]

    5. The medical side of things was interesting to me than the yet another sinister government conspiracy aspect Another thing that impressed me was the main characters are a mix of strengths and flaws and sometimes their strengths are flaws.Maybe I should create a medical comics list with this, Witch Doctor any others I should look out for

    6. I really enjoyed Surgeon X A work that I feel tries to open up a debate around incredibly important issues that affect all of us in a new, engaging and interesting way As I understand it the author worked with many professionals in the scientific and medical world to make this a credible piece of work I thought the characters were believable and we see even now, perhaps the beginning of a shift toward the sort of government that is in power in SurgeonX I disagree with a comment from another revi [...]

    7. Disclaimer I made it one issue in before I couldn t take any, so I did not read all of the book because it was just that bad I really admire Karen Berger She is the editor responsible for popularizing creators like Alan Moore, Garth Ennis, Jamie Delano, Grant Morrison, Neil Gaiman, and so many others Without her, Vertigo Comics would not exist In short, Berger has done tons for comics as an art form, so I was excited to hear that she was editing an Image book This book is extremely political, wh [...]

    8. Set approximately 20 years from now in London, England, this is a futuristic medical thriller where the world is suffering an antibiotic apocalypse Almost every disease known to man has become resistant to antibiotics and the government has taken control of antibiotic dispensation to only the few who pass a rigid screening process The story centres around a family in the medical profession The father is a surgeon working in his own private medical clinic catering to the rich, the recently murder [...]

    9. Surgeon X from Sara Kenney and artist John Watkiss is an engaging medical thriller dystopia set in the near future.The basic premise, the eventual ineffectiveness of antibiotics because of overuse, is not only plausible but well within the realm of possible The creation of a dystopian society where this shortage plays an important role is perhaps less probable but certainly well within the range of possible in lieu of the asinine authoritarian governments popping up where there once were continu [...]

    10. Antibiotics resistance aftermath interesting conceptDealing with the world s increasing reliance on antibiotics and its consequences, this comic collection centres around a family s involvement in medical circles in a not too distant future As the British Government refuse treatment to many, Rosa operates illegally in every sense of the word as her family search for a solution to the antibiotic problem.Quite good although I wasn t too keen on the illustrations but certainly an original tale and [...]

    11. Let me qualify my rating While I like the premise the story, I give the actual writing three stars The dialogue is laden with exposition, some of the relationships are trope ish, some of the transitions lack, well, transition That fourth star is for the late John Watkiss art It s realistic, stark, yet still beautiful His death is a great loss.

    12. A brilliant, harrowing concept poorly executed It reads as though it s constrained by the Comics format and actively seeking adaptation which, ultimately, might not be a bad idea if handed to creators native to that next medium Unfortunately, the dialogue, the pacing, and the characterizations deeply hamper the razor sharp conceit and setting.

    13. Antibiotic resistance is fucking terrifying and while parts of the story were chilling, it still felt like parts of the story was missing I m still interested enough to seek out the next volume.

    14. Opravdu jsem si p la, aby tohle dopadlo l pe P b h m l potenci l a za t tila ho legend rn Karen Berger, jen e proveden se ale v bec nepovedlo Co je skute n velk koda, proto e jde bohu el o posledn d lo Johna Watkisse Vizu ln str nka byla tak na cel m komiksu to nejlep.
