It even affects the iron that is present in blood—enough to cause bizarre mutations and affect human fertility.

    What a surprise! I was going in blind, not even knowing I had already read others comic from this author and like them. Anyway, this was such a cool comic and a series I would loved to continue on. It have solid characters, deep and cool settings and universe, perfect balance between story line and action and the art was cool. Truly a comic worth noticing!

    Beaucoup, beaucoup d'informations dans ce premier tome. Je trouve qu'il y a un air de MadMax. Avec un peu de lugubre en plus. Par contre, âme sensible s'abstenir.

    Ok, this is straight-up GREAT. I have SO many questions, and I need to know what happens next! It's sometime in the future, and the world is basically dead because of a weird fungus thing that eats iron - including the iron in blood. There are now several different groups living around: mutants who survived the virus but got all messed up by it, the "church" who go around trying to find fertile couples and forcing them to breed in hopes of repopulating the earth, the cannibals who can only stay Ok, this is straight-up GREAT.

There are also small groups of people who aren't super duper mutated and living the rustic life of farming and stuff. Then there is the transporter who will deliver anything to anyone for a small fee. I've figured out why he claims the fee that he claims I think... but I don't know why his fee what his fee is... haha! I need volume 2!!!

    Well, hell. This was one hell of a graphic novel. The Transporter takes readers into a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by an eroder called the Rust. This substance came from the bowels of the Earth and has devastated metal, effectively setting back civilization to the Bronze Age. The Rust affects all types of iron, even the one within our bloodstream, causing monstrous mutations and breeding monsters.

The Transporter takes readers into a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by an eroder called the Rust. This substance came from the bowels of the Earth and has devastated metal, effectively setting back civilization to the Bronze Age. The Rust affects all types of iron, even the one within our bloodstream, causing monstrous mutations and breeding monsters. With hints of a fantasy world from both its illustration and storyline, The Transporter takes common sci-fi elements and creates a fantastic story accompanied by a beguiling art style. Taking the classic mysterious wanderer trope and sculpting a freakish, off-beat scenario isn't always easy, but this novel certainly nailed it. Gruesome and devastating, this will strongly appeal to fans of frightful dystopia with magic woven through it.

    The Transporter is a post-apocalyptic series with a western feel. A virus has spread throughout the world that destroys anything containing iron, including the human body. The result is a civilization thrown back into the bronze age and the human race living their lives with various mutations. The story centers around a character simply named The Transporter, who will do just about anything for a price. The artwork in this comic is stunning.

The story was also very engaging, giving just enough answers to keep me invested in finding out what is going to happen next! The volume reads like an introduction for the series, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing in this case. And that ending has me hooked!

The Transporter - Nymph is the first issue of a new comic series with a post-apocalyptic western theme. Released 15th July 2020 from Europe Comics and translated from the French, it's 56 pages and available in ebook / comiXology formats. This is a very oddly told but weirdly compelling story. The back story is scattered and murky but the highlights are that a virus has destroyed most of the metal on planet earth, wrecking civilization and (due to the iron in blood), mutating most of humanity. The titular character seems to be immune to any effects of the virus and he has taken it upon himself to transport anything anywhere - for a price. Beyond the broad strokes, the story is told in flashbacks and side-hops which make following the story somewhat challenging. I found some of the character renderings fairly similar so keeping them straight during the reading was a little difficult a couple times. All in all though, the art is beautifully done and the inking also. There were a very few times I felt the translation work was a little rough. Nothing specific I can point to, exactly, just a vague feeling that the dialogue didn't precisely flow. (It isn't egregious at all, just noticeable). Three and a half stars, rounded up mostly for the interesting (if choppy) story and the well done art. Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

    This first part of The Transporter series "Nymph" is wonderful, disgusting and dark like no other. An unstoppable virus has overtaken the world as it eats iron. Even the metal in people's blood changes and there are creatures with spores. Most of the human race has died and food is scarce. Some have gained weird powers and the church wants to find people to breed, because the humans are dying.

Some have gained weird powers and the church wants to find people to breed, because the humans are dying. Then we have the Transporter, a quiet and gloomy guy with dark powers and his mission is...to transport. He always keeps his promises, but you need to swallow an egg for it. I really loved the nasty world and how so little is explained. The egg thing was so suffocating not to forget that we get different angles to things and you never know what to believe. The art looks great and grotesque even, which works out nicely. This is horror basically and the dark and mundane colors somehow prove how tainted this series is. I very much like to know what happens, even though this makes me feel ill. There's some Giger is this surely. One of the better series like this and well a constructed plot.

    Une BD de SF post-apo. Une bactérie qui altère le fer à transformé le monde. Un univers bien construit, qui m'a rappelé celui de Degenesis (jeu de rôle). Violente, la BD interroge sur la chute de la civilisation et l'après. Le personnage du titre est bien mystérieux. Personne de confiance ou ennemi potentiel ? Dans ce monde où le danger guette partout, difficile de se prononcer ! Le suspense et l'action sont présents. Il y a pas mal de sang et mutilations (âmes sensibles s'abstenir). Une BD de SF post-apo.

    3.5* Ce premier tome était pas mal du tout. Le rythme était un peu lent mais j'ai accroché à la deuxième moitié de la BD. Ce tome m'a donné envie d'en savoir plus, notamment le mystère autour du convoyeur et de l’œuf qu'il donne à chaque mission. Ce tome 1 est un bon démarrage de saga, à voir par la suite ! 3.5* Ce premier tome était pas mal du tout. Le rythme était un peu lent mais j'ai accroché à la deuxième moitié de la BD.

    C'est un BD gore et il y a des passages que je n'ai pas compris, avec un système de flashbacks insérés qui sont d'une durée indéterminée...

    J’aime bien l’angle du virus qui s’attaque au fer. J’ai aussi bien aimé le personnage principal, un peu comme Undertaker, il se promène et accepte les contrats. Très riche univers pour ce premier tome.

Although you may certainly not be faint of heart to truly appreciate This story that is enthralling and cruel but nevertheless really great Post-apocalyptic western comic book Actually there is no better way to describe this story that tells us more about an unstoppable virus that attacks iron and thus destroys a big part of civilization. Not only buildings, metal weapons, … disappear. Humans are also affected by mutations, due to the iron in their blood. In this strange new world a lonesome cowboy - known as 'The Transporter' - seems to have only one mission in life: transport anything anywhere for anyone, no questions asked. The only favour he wants in return is for his clients to swallow a special egg. But what are his intentions? Is he a hero or a devil? Part one This book is the first part in a French series created by scenarist Tristan Roulot and cartoonist Dimitri Armand. Story: Although the beginning of this series is told in only 56 pages, there are a lot of different storylines that are all well worked-out. The only downpoint is the fact that the transition between the different lines is not always clear: sometimes you are in a flashback and suddenly again in a present storyline. But apart from that mystery, black humour, interesting life questions, … are all covered in this 'part one' that makes you long for part two, which hopefully won't take too long to be created and published. Pictures: Sometimes a bit dark, but overall an intriguing and nice visual depictment of the story. If you want to have a brief idea of what to expect, you can watch the trailer. Interview If you master the French language, it is recommended to watch the interview with Tristan Roulot. Not only does he tell about his reconversion from law student to comic book scenarist and his way of working (he always first comes up with the beginning and the end of a story), but also about the influence of the corona-lockdown on his way of working (with 2 children in the house there's a lot of his work that is done at night) and about his view on the series (that will eventually be a trilogy). *Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    This was a great post-apocalyptic graphic novel with a western feel. A world where a mysterious virus of rust has disintegrated everything, including the iron in human blood, causing mutations of all kinds.

The story follows The Transporter, who delivers whatever is tasked of him, but there is a mystery to this character that leaves you questioning to the very end. This is action-packed, full of great atmosphere and art. The storytelling is overall pretty good, but I found some of the context shifts confusing and visual communication of details missing. (Such as the shadowed figure and jumping between timelines, I thought this shadow was the transporter. And also little details such as the horse being lead away by the church, but then in the next few slides the transporter jumps on his horse which just happens to still be in the area). Aside from clarifying some of these little details to promote smoother story flow, I rather enjoyed this graphic novel and would be interested in reading the rest! Recommended audience: Suitable for mature audiences as it contains body horror, violence and nudity.

    This is a future Apocalyptic world, where some rust-styled gunk has put paid to anything built of metal, and our civilisation is back in the dark ages. Most of mankind, without iron and all the good metals in our blood, have turned into muties, as if fresh from Judge Dredd's Cursed Earth.

Most of mankind, without iron and all the good metals in our blood, have turned into muties, as if fresh from Judge Dredd's Cursed Earth. Some of us have also developed weird superpowers – but The Transporter's power seems to be fetching and carrying while immune from any danger. His latest mission might be a test, though – bringing back the manfolk kidnapped from a sizeable village. And that's made harder with the attentions of the token Dodgy Culty Church Run by Fat Blokes. And you know what's harder still? Actually following this book. Similar-looking females, too many sides, too much back-story, too much cutting away to someone narrating about it elsewhere and elsewhen – it all gets more than a bit much. I'll not go into how original having a load of Aliens rejects and a flame-thrower are, either – I wouldn't want to put you right off. But this isn't exactly packed with novelty, and seems to use every trick to try and hide that, in vain. Two and a half stars.

    The Transporter is kind of like a mercenary mailman. He travels and delivers items for people, no matter what, for a strange cost. This is a dystopian world where something called 'the rust' has destroyed all things made of metal. This also effected the iron in human's blood and caused genetic mutations. I really liked this.

It's dark and action packed. I thought the timelines were a little confusing at times, but I was still invested in the world. I thought the world building was rich for a first book in a graphic novel. The Transporter as a character was an archetype I'd seen before but not one that I hate. He's a morally grey, live by his own set of codes, ranger type of character with some strange powers. I also really liked the art work in this and I felt like the panels led the eye really well. The scenes with no dialogue still conveyed meaning. Definitely going to be looking out for the next book in this series.

    *Received via NetGalley for review* A post-apocalyptic world full of mutations and violence and selfishness, but very arresting and original in those mutations. Wonderful coloring and character design. Definitely kept me guessing and engaged.
