A remote research facility is faced with the reality of a hostile takeover by new corporate owners.
Purge is an interesting story, but also something of a disappointment. There are some novel and interesting concepts introduced here, such as androids built using Alien DNA and impregnated lepers who have a symbiotic relationship with the juvenile Alien.
However these concepts are never developed and what we are left with is a fairly bland tale revolving around the same old tired series trope of a greedy malevolent corporation doing nasty things to people. I get the feeling that if the story was longer that the more interesting concepts could have been explored more, but unfortunately that is not the case.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the artwork, though it was competent enough.
Purge is a decent enough story, with some interesting ideas, but unfortunately these are not developed resulting in a fairly bland tale.
