The Iron Heel is an exciting and visually stunning graphic novel written by author Bix Santana and illustrated by Ryan Gutierrez. Focusing on radical social change in a future world seven centuries from now, this thrilling, dark sci-fi tale tells the story of a society threatening to collapse as a new world order looms on the horizon. Caught in the crossfire of this changing world is Anthony Meredith, a typical noir cynical hero whose primary job is to create virtual entertainment stories to keep the masses quiet. But when Meredith is pulled into the rebellion against the elites, he discovers the true exploitation underlying the current system and sets about a method to ignite the fire of revolution across the world.
I loved this story to bits. There are so many references to excellent and intelligent political science fiction of the past, for example the parallels between Huxley’s ‘feelies’ and the ‘verties’ that Meredith creates, as well as the more modern story lines of classics like The Matrix. Bix Santana weaves these old tropes into a powerful new form, delivering a fresh and exciting world that reflects our own in terms of the temptation of corruption and the power of rebellion against it. This is accompanied by Ryan Gutierrez’s stunning illustrative work, which brings the emotive elements of the characters to life and the noir setting of the world to its fullest, most sinister potential. Overall, The Iron Heel will appeal to V For Vendetta style revenge and revolution fans. A lavish must-read for the graphic novel genre.
