In the distant future, an epic battle rages between two species – a humanoid race ruled by a techno-organic matriarch and a cruel race of alien artificial intelligences. This is the premise of “Resist”, the smash hit album by legendary symphonic metal band Within Temptation. Now, this epic story has been turned into a comic book by Opus Comics, illustrated by Montos and written by Marieke Nijkamp.

The comic book is a collection of several stories that collide to paint a sweeping portrait of the matriarch’s life and her struggle to balance what she was created to be with the impossible forces that shape her. The artwork is stunning, with intricate details and vivid colors that bring the futuristic world to life. The writing is equally impressive, with Nijkamp crafting a complex and emotionally charged story that explores themes of identity, rebellion, and the power of love and hope in the face of tyranny and oppression.

One of the most striking aspects of the comic book is the way it seamlessly weaves together the album’s music and lyrics with the visual storytelling. Each story is accompanied by lyrics from the corresponding song on the album, adding an extra layer of emotional depth and resonance to the narrative. It’s a testament to the power of Within Temptation’s music that it can inspire such a rich and immersive story, and Opus Comics has done an excellent job of bringing that story to life.

Overall, Within Temptation is a must-read for fans of the band and anyone who loves epic science fiction stories. The cover price of $4.99 is a steal for the quality of the artwork and writing, and the comic book is sure to be a treasured addition to any collection.
