Rating: 3 / 5 – Worth a try
Another #1 that’s definitely worth a try for the $1 cover price. The art, by Zid, is gorgeous. Robert Napton’s story felt a bit scattered to me. We had a lot of things happening, a lot of characters being introduced , but how those people & things are going to hang together into a coherent story didn’t come across to me in this issue.
I’m all for building up suspense and not laying all your cards on the table up front as a writer, but there’s a fine line to tread there in that I need to feel like I got a satisfying chunk of story when I get to the end of any single issue of a comic. The story seems like it’s going to get someplace I’d enjoy eventually, but in and of itself, this issue didn’t compel me to pre-order #2, though I’ll definitely check out #2 at the LCS.
For $1 I’d recommend that people who like mystery, magic, and fantasy elements encroaching into the modern day world of suits & science give this a try.
