The epic saga of warring animals who inexplicably become intelligent after the dying off of the human race.
Squarriors is a comic book serial that centers around several clans of animals living in a world recently voided of humans. Since the demise of humanity, the remaining animal life on the planet have become intelligent. The sudden spark of rational thought creates an internal struggle for these creatures; instinct versus reason. Animals of all species find themselves creating tribes and societies-each with their own beliefs, leaders, laws, and even armies. Some are working to be civilized while others embrace the barbaric ways of their ancestors.
The clashing of these ideas erupts into ultra-violent wars across the planet. The remaining question, what did the humans do to result in their extinction? And how can the new inhabiting civilization avoid the same fate?
''Anticipating a flavor closer to Brian Jacques’ Redwall series, I was forced to quickly shelve all of my assumptions — this title reads more like Game of Thrones than anything about cavorting midsummer mice. Factions, limited resources, distrustful races, and family issues bathe the bracken in blood.''
