Review: Alvery Nerveaux

Alvery Nerveaux is the story of a young woman of the same name on her quest to save the world from a villainous woman named Ardrienne Renelsoir, who seems to be more of a horrible boss than an criminal mastermind. 

While the story is pretty new with only thirty pages so far I can tell that Alvery is the stereotypical “can’t do anything and nobody listens to her” kind of character, hopefully there is more in the way of development aside from the facts that she’s a klutz and gamer to go on. 

Oddly enough, we seem to get more development from Adrienne than anyone else, and that’s mostly from the set pieces she is put in. She’s tried thousands of times at world domination so we know she’s stubborn, she’s capable of hacking into secure accounts and stealing millions of dollars in us currency, and her henchmen seem to be quite a bit less than motivated at her latest scheme. Not a lot but their interactions are what caught my attention so far. 

The story, what there is so far, is interesting and funny at times, but as there isn’t enough for depth just yet you’ll have to take this next bit with a grain of salt. I like the story itself, the main character is a bit klutzy and is a gamer which always hits a place in my heart, but without any other qualities so far you can’t really get behind her and start routing in her favor. I look forward to some backstory on our heroine down the line, and maybe some for our villain as well.

The art style is pretty simplistic compared to most other comics I’ve read, but it has a certain charm to it that I can’t quite place my finger on. With a black and white world, and each character having their own unique expressions, I can see a steady future for this comic so long as we get a tad more in the ways of character arcs. Not a lot, since this seems to be more of a comedic story, but I would like to get to know them some more, just so I have a bit of attachment to the characters.

With high hopes for the future I look forward to reading more of the wacky adventures of Alvery Nerveaux.

And, as always, I hope you enjoy as much as I do.
