    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher May 3, 2009

    Eureka: Dormant Gene #1 is another solid first issue. It moves quickly through the setup to the reveal that somethin' just ain't right with that boy, and doesn't drag or hang on nonsense moments that have no bearing on the story. Eureka isn't going to appeal to everyone, and readers are going to have to be familiar with the show in order to understand what is going on in the book. Eureka: Dormant Gene #1 is a good start to a new story arc, earning 3 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    This was not 'so bad it was good' but for me it was a mediocre collection at best. I've never seen Sundown/Twilight, through choice rather than availability, so I maybe missed a lot of plot points and nuances in this story but I found the plot to be weak and fragmented and the characters annoying - especially the emo theatre-ish kid whose fanciful retelling of events confused rather than entertained the folk in the comic as well as me. The artwork throughout the comics was also of a much lower standard than in the first collection, with some of the known characters being barely recognisable, although the cover art for each of the four comics was again very well done. This is a poor cousin to the first collection, definitely a filler episode and a stretch for even the most ardent Eureka fan to enjoy. My advice would be to skip this one and go on to the next, if there was one. Oh wait.... there's not. I wonder why? Read Full Review
