The Big Bang created all life as we know it. The Bigger Bang creates just one: a being named Cosmos. Is he a destroyer? A hero? A god? All he knows is that he’s completely alone in what was our universe… so he seeks out another where he’ll try to atone for the sins of his mysterious creation.
The Bigger Bang started off good but after a while, it was a real slog. The illustrations were a bit messy and to be honest, quite confusing at times, which is really not a good thing for a graphic novel.
The basic concept was not that bad but the overall demonstration or the flow of the story lacked the spark to make it even an average read. I completed this book just for the sake of completing. I had a really difficult time completing this one. The colors of the artwork in the book were quite depressing and so was the undertone of the book.
With a superhero theme I was expecting a lot more action from this book but unfortunately, the main theme seemed to be depression, a superhero who is super depressed and apparently keeps on sulking about killing everyone as a result of his “super birth.”
To be honest, I would have enjoyed it atleast a tad more if Cosmos would have been a bit of a stud (given that the superheros are supposed to be stud! duh!!)
If you are planning to give this a chance then I’d recommend to keep the expectations a bit low.
