(Editor: Sometimes we are taken with a product that isn’t entirely gaming related, though Weta certainly have been involved with the Halo universe (building a real-life Warthog for the movie currently in limbo). This Victory graphic novel/ artbook is part of their unique collection of products they produce and sell and we gave our youngest member the opportunity to review it. Here’s what he had to say.)
“Greetings. Young Men and Women of Earth. Welcome to the latest instalment of Victory- a guide to understanding our Solar System and your place in it.”
So begins the graphic novel and artbook Dr Grordbort presents Victory: Scientific Adventure Violence For Young Men & Literate Women. Greg Broadmore wrote and illustrated Victory for Weta which is a company based in New Zealand that builds props like the real life Halo Warthog as well as Master Chief’s Mark VI Spartan Helmet and produces visual effects for movies like Avatar, Lord of the Rings and District 9. It and the earlier Dr Grordbort books are published by Dark Horse Books.
