The year 2023. Planet Earth has gone through a third world war.

The few million survivors of this catastrophe have, for the most part, turned into mutants, with lower mental capacity and disgusting deformities. Among them, a Swedish scientist named Igliduk can no longer stand his mutation and longs to get his glorious former body back.

With the invention of his human genome-reconstructing machine, he will invite the envy of his fellow mutants and the wrath of an evil organization with sinister designs.

Torn between his dream and his own survival, Igliduk will have to make wise choices and avoid the numerous dangers that lie in wait.

  1. Ryan Kindahl

    Regarding the product itself, Inhuman Trials was well-printed on quality paper and bound well. I enjoyed the larger format of the book. The cover art and design is also eye-catching and tasteful. In regards to the story, I don’t think I was the target audience for this book. Post-apocalyptic stories can be done well, but it’s a tough sub-genre to come at from a new angle. The story felt too sparse to connect with. Maybe it was supposed to be comical, but the humor didn’t come through. It felt like watching Ralph Bakshi’s WIZARDS for the first time- where the art is interesting and the world is intriguing, but ultimately I don’t know what the hell is going on.

    This graphic novel was quite enjoyable! It had a pretty solid story with a playful but dark sense of humor. I loved the color palette and felt the art style matched the mood of the book well. I felt that there was a little more to be explored before the end of the story but otherwise it was a fun read.

    This is a good read! No cumbersome backstory, convoluted character dilemmas. Just one man/mutant trying to live his life, and get back to normalcy… or some form of it. Its sylistic art feels like the Maxx, Mtv’s the Head animation, and sarcastic humor of adult swims squidbillies all rolled into one. I enjoyed frenetic action following the oddball main character on his misadventures through the gritty disfigured world, trying to find some answers in the chaos. It would be interesting to see what troubles he gets into next.

    This book has a really fun art style, but I found the story a little unpolished. There are a some extraneous details & the resolution to the story is paced too fast.

    I got to admit, this was a great story with a different art style than I normally like, but it wasn’t bad. I really enjoyed the story, not sure if it was suppose to be funny, but I laughed at parts of it. This happens after a 3rd world war and mutants roam the earth, and this one guy, mutated also, is trying to make a machine to change people back, things happen and people try to kill him. Short summary without giving anything away. If you like sci-fi and/or post apocalyptic narrative, give it a read. You won’t be disappointed.

  6. Dave Baxter

    I adored this. It reminded me a lot of the original Eastman and Laird TMNT, and other 80’s b&w underground “comix” in terms of it’s wild, devil-may-care storytelling and outlandish concepts it barely slows down to explain or justify, but the style is so confident and in your face you mostly don’t care, you just chug along for the ride, and what a ride it is.This is a graphic novel in “Euro” oversized format with gorgeously colored art that swings through a few differing styles as the story moves through it’s numbered three acts. It swings from borderline all-ages cartoonish and to unexpectedly violent and bloody and back again. The story is a blast, though it’s also, as mentioned, not entirely plot-driven. Many of the twists are sudden and not really justified, you just have to go with it. The finale is almost anti-climatic, but also fitting with the rest of the “ah, f*** it, why not?” storytelling.I read the whole thing in under an hour, in one sitting, but will definitely enjoy pouring over it again and again in the future. It’s just fun s***.

    Alternating between funny and violent, this is the perfect graphic novel for those looking for a humorous sci-fi story for an adult audience. The book features an alcoholic anti-hero scientist battling against the odds to un-mutate himself in a post-WW3 hellscape.

  8. Eric G

    This graphic novel reminds me of old school Adult Swim cartoons. It’s like Aqua Teen Hunger Force set after a radiation apocalypse. I really loved the main character, a drinking and smoking Swedish scientist trying to fix humanity. It was a fun trip through the mutant filled story seeing this interesting world as Igliduk tried to find a cure and ran for his life. I’m hoping there is eventually a follow up to explore more about the different mutant types and how the world works after the third world war.I definitely recommend this for a fun read about an interesting and messed up world filled with mutants!

  9. Holly RameyHolly Ramey

    Perfect for the sci-fi fanatic. Its playfully humorous and has a broad color scheme. The story of an apocalyptic world and the scientists trying to find the cure. Rated for teen and up…if you don’t mind the language.

    There have been many stories about the world after a nuclear war. This story goes into interesting directions with nearly everyone mutated and society struggling to hang on.Rather than focus on larger-than-life heroes, this story centers on Igliduk, a drunk scientist.The art features lots of fun character designs that are a clever contrast to the fairly dark storytelling.Although the coloring can be TOO dark in a few places, and the plot confusing for a few brief pages, I’d recommend checking this one out.There are lots of twists and turns that you’ll enjoy.I look forward to the next works from Gox & Sinok.

  12. Thomas fernandez

    Loved this book, the story is original and the art work is as well, the dark feel of the art is a perfect match for the subject matter

    Inhuman Trials was entertaining enough given the premise of a shaggy green olive’s struggles in a near-future fascist hellscape. The lively, scratchy ink lines drew me in to the comic, but the story was a tropey sci-fi romp that didn’t follow characters who I found myself caring about. Igliduk is a mutated scientist and the government is after him. A bunch of other people are mutated also. Some of the mutations give them powers, I guess. A lot of shooting and explosions happen. Mutation saves the day. Screw you, gooberment. Some of the pages early in the book were printed so murkily it was difficult to follow the action of the story. Overall a decent effort by Gox and Sinox, and I look forward to seeing future comics from them as their work matures.

    I liked it, and Inhuman Trials is not my typical read. Apocalyptic, funny, with a satisfying ending. Think Monsters, Inc. meets the ultimate dystopian society. Worth it.

  15. Yered H. Pita-juarez

    I really enjoyed this graphic novel. I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because it felt a bit short. I think there were plenty of elements that could have been explored further.
