Item description for Singularity 7 by Ben Templesmith...

Earth is forever changed one dark summer night when tiny alien machines known as nanites drift down from outer space. They transform a normal human into a god-like being known as the Singularity, who drives the remnants of humanity underground and to the brink of extinction. Now Earth's only hope lies in the hands of a rag-tag group of "Specials" - humans mysteriously immune to the nanites' destructive power. The odds are stacked against them, but will a defector from the other side grant them the edge they need to prevail?

Reviews - What do customers think about Singularity 7?

Ben Templesmith... extraordinary!  Apr 25, 2008
I will be simple... Great story (it is Templesmith debut as a storyteller), the art is his own kind, very special, I love all the details of his art and this terror scy-fi graphic novel. I rate this book with four stars (instead five) because the quality of the binding is disgusting...
Muddled and Mediocre  May 12, 2006
If you want an idea of Singularity 7, think of the liner artwork from a third-tier industrial band combined with the writing of an angsty teenage aspiring novelist, and you'd be in the right ballpark. This is not to say that Templesmith's art is without some technical ability; it's more to say that it's painfully unoriginal, and the melty surrealist style serves to neuter what little action is available in the book, leaving mounds of mushy exposition to carry the plot.

A much better version of a very similar basic story can be found in Snikt, the post-apocalyptic Wolverine story by Tsutomu Nihei, for those in desperate need of a moody, nanotech apocalypse story in graphic novel form.
Brilliant Art, Great Concept, Muddled Characters  Nov 16, 2005
Templesmith is a master artist and conceptualist, but Singularity 7 shows that he still needs some work on storytelling and characterization. Some of the characters are hard to tell apart, and no character ever comes out as a lead. I have no problem with emsemble pieces, but there were characters that seemed like they were only in the story to serve as a lead, then never got to be one. The boy with the dragon tattoo on his face, for example (those who've read this will understand).

Negatives aside, Templesmith's art has always been exceptional, and he does not break from that here. Plus, the concept of the story is extremely engaging, even when the characters are not. It's too bad that this is a self-contained story, because the story could have gone on as a series for quite some time. I have high hopes for his current series, Shadowplay, and hope to see that published as a collection soon.
Wow  Apr 6, 2005
An awesome story-line, fantastic artwork and a superb mix of horror and science fiction make this one to remember. Highly recommended to anyone who likes the band Fear Factory, as the artist of Singularity 7, Ben Templesmith, was actually commissioned by the band to do their artwork.

All in all, worth the money and worth a read. Over and over again
