Whenever the apocalypse happens in fiction there is always a plucky band of survivors trying to make it in the post-apocalyptic world. In real life post-apocalypse waits a few million years for the next species to come along and dig up the fossils and fail to learn from history. But in both these scenarios, no-one thinks about the dogs.

In Rover Red Charlie, Garth Ennis has journeyed back to his apocalyptic world of Crossed to ask the question, "What about the dogs?" How will they cope without their "feeders", will they still be able to bark "I'm a dog", and are they the ones who will inherit the planet once we're all gone?

When I read Crossed three years ago I presented a one word review: "Disturbing." It was quite possibly the most graphic depiction and the most depraved apocalypse I've ever read. Yet despite being set in the same world, Rover Red Charlie is quite light and fun; exactly what you would expect from the dog's take on the apocalypse. The usual Ennis humour and social commentary is present ("The feeders went and messed up this world, guess they had to go.") and the three friends and their journey of discovery is enjoyable.

An original take on the apocalypse and one for fans of Ennis and the genre. ( )
