Summary
From its opening pages, Ant Colony immerses the reader in a world that is darkly existential, with false prophets, unjust wars, and corrupt police officers, as it follows the denizens of a black ant colony under attack from the nearby red ants. On the surface, it<U+2019>s the story of this war, the destruction of a civilization, and the ants<U+2019> all too familiar desire to rebuild. Underneath, though, Ant Colony plumbs the deepest human concerns<U+2014>loneliness, faith, love, apathy, and more. All of this is done with humor and sensitivity, exposing a world where spiders can wreak unimaginable amounts of havoc with a single gnash of their jaws. DeForge<U+2019>s striking visual sensibility<U+2014>stark lines, dramatic color choices, and brilliant use of page and panel space<U+2014>stands out in this volume
