Many radical books read like movie adaptations and “Time Bomb” is no exception.  As I read it I could really imagine this book being up there on the silver screen.  The book has an interesting plot about a Nazi super weapon being uncovered in present day (or perhaps near future) Berlin. When activated the weapon starts to wipe out the entire human race and humanities last hope is a team of special agents who are sent back in time to WW2 Germany  to prevent the catastrophe.

The book was well paced and easy to read with just enough twists, turns and betrayals to hold my attention.  The artwork was excellent throughout and it captured Hitler’s Germany and the advanced Nazi tech really well.  Gulacy’s artwork has a pleasing comic book style, unlike some of the photo realistic stuff you sometimes find in Radical publications, and the book was better for it.  Special mention must also go to the color pallette which suited the story well and added a lot of atmosphere.

“Time Bomb” is a well drawn Radical action book with a great central idea and at 168 glossy pages it represents great value for money. If you enjoy Radical’s movie like stories and presentation you should also enjoy this book. [ISBN-13: 978-1935417408]. 8/10
