Tomorrowland #1 (Titan)


Rating: 3/5 – Mystery, history, and Rock’n’Roll

This is a comic accompaniment to the real world Tomorrowland Music Festival and it focuses on 2 DJs, Mike & Dimitri who initially share a dream about a strange portal opening at the festival and as the story progresses we see that there may actually be something to that as mythical creatures start popping up here and there.

The art by Alti Firmansyah and Beny Maulana is appealing, reminiscent of Humberto Ramos, but I had some issues with the storytelling in some of the page layouts and panel-to-panel continuity.  Nothing to make the story unreadable, but it didn’t feel as clear as it might have.

Paul Jenkins sets up a very different kind of story but this issue is heavy on setup and light on payoff.  The last panel “hook” has me definitely wanting to see where Jenkins is going to go with the story in #2, but I felt a lack of self-contained payoff in this issue.  Solid story that I hope will get better as the series goes on and some of the holes get filled in.

    This issue sort of left me cold. I think it will really appeal/not appeal to people based on the visuals. I think the color really could have used more contrast. It is colorful but sort of a similar palette that didn’t pop as much as I would have preferred. I am not getting 2.
