If you’ve been on the fence about seeing the latest installment in the franchise, Vertigo Comics’ “Mad Max: Fury Road - Inspired Artists Deluxe Edition” will give you enough ammunition to make your decision an easy one. This 76-page hardcover piece of eye candy features artwork from dozens of fabulous illustrators like Bill Sienkiewicz, Simon Bisley, Cliff Chiang, Howard Chaykin, David Mack, Paul Pope, Dave Johnson, and Lee Bermejo to name a few. Each one offers a unique glimpse into the apocalyptic world George Miller created. Commentary on the works are provided by George Miller and the artists. It’s an absolute must have for fans of the “Mad Max” series.
“Mad Max: Fury Road - Inspired Artists Deluxe Edition” is recommended for mature readers age 17 and up. The illustrations found within contain violence and gore and intense and frightening images. There isn’t any actual nudity, but some of the pieces feature more skin than some would like to see. None of them are suggestive or sexual, however. By no means am I defending it or think it’s necessary… I’m just telling it like it is.
