This is about a special animal control unit. From the publisher description:
"In a world where a rhino can be gene-spliced with a dog, freakish animals are everywhere, and the Creature Cops have to deal with them."
Like many cop stories, we get our stereotypes: the alcoholic veteran cop, the rookies, the tough sergeant, so on. In that sense, the story feels familiar. Still, we do come to care for the characters, and we discover they do have some depth. In addition, the action is great, and the story moves at a steady pace as the plot deepens.The art on this one is very good as well, especially in depicting the hybrids. We see quite a bit of imagination on display.
In the end, I really liked this one, and I hope the series continues.
4 out of 5 stars.
