There IS life on other planets-THEY find it.
Abros Kel is a ZooHunter-a man who is hired to capture animals for zoos on alien worlds. He and his young son Ty have lost everything due to a tragedy, and together this uncomfortable pair set out into the stars to train Ty as a ZooHunter. Along the way they encounter scores of alien life-forms on far away worlds including Qaurec-an unscrupulous rival ZooHunter who is hunting Abros down. Can Abros and Ty stay one step ahead of his villainy and prove successful in their quest?

    This is a delightful discovery that puts wonder back into space. A strong story of a father and son trying to build a lost bond against the backdrop of catching alien animals. A must read. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Nov 5, 2014

    The ZooHunters #1 is a comic with some off moments here and there but the groundwork is set for what's bound to be one of, if not the, best original ideas to come from this company. And that's saying a lot for a publisher that has hits like Damsels in Excess, Executive Assistant: Assassins, Fathom, SoulfireandLola XOXO, need I say more? This one comes recommended.

    ComicBuzz - ZXRoberts Nov 7, 2014

    The opening issue has done enough to peak interest, with a heavy focus on a very intriguing father/son dynamic and a coming of age story blossoming. Moving forward seeing Ty being trained to be a Zoohunter looks set to be a great story. A series that has serious potential. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Nina Bird Nov 5, 2014

    So far, there isn't much to say about Zoo Hunters. #1 is simply setting the stage for what I hope will be an interesting comic, but this issue wasn't particularly exciting or memorable. It does have a great premise, and Steigerwald has an opportunity to develop Ty into a well-written, fleshed-out character. Set in space, jumping from world to world, there are endless possibilities here; I just hope that they are fully explored. Read Full Review
