The Wrenchies

Graphic Novel

F/A  Dalrymple, Farel. The Wrenchies.  First Second, 2014.  302p.  978-1-59643-421-9.  19.99.

The Wrenchies are a gang of teens in a post-apocalyptic world. They got their name from a comic book of the same title. In order to survive into adulthood, they must kill the shadowsmen who will turn them into monsters if they don’t cut off their heads first. When Hollis is transported via an amulet into the world of the Wrenchies he has to help them defeat the shadowsmen. The artwork is great, but the story is very hard to follow. It took over halfway through to even understand a little bit of the connection between all of the characters storylines. Many of the characters are interesting, but they aren’t developed enough. Loren Spector, LAPL, Memorial Branch
