It's the Martians' warlike Nature vs the human tendency to Nurture, as "First Born" hits its penultimate point! Will the first Martian born on Earth succumb to its biologically barbaric imperative? Things take a turn for the bizarre as Ryall and Kieth build to an explosive conclusion to their latest partnership!

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Aug 6, 2014

    First Born continues to be the Mars Attack story you never knew you wanted. By taking a different perspective to the invasions and making it a little closer to home than we're used to seeing, Ryall and Kieth have crafted a story that shows Mars Attacks can be more than slapstick little aliens who love destruction.

    We The Nerdy - Kierra Prince Aug 7, 2014

    Oddly enough, this issue probably had the least amount of overall action and was mostly made up of dialogue and internal thoughts. Chris Ryall does an absolutely fantastic job at expressing these things though and I am constantly amazed at how well he continues to write children. Clare is remarkably grown-up, which is expected given the circumstances, but he still manages to add in that childlike innocence to her dialogue and inner monologues that cements the fact that she's still a child which makes everything even more sad than it already was. Sam Kieth's art fits right along side this. His artwork is reminiscent of a child's drawings, with certain panels drawn as if Clare herself was illustrating her story, and I fall in love with it more and more as the series progresses. It's a far cry from the culty, campy image we have of Mars Attacks but it gets us closer to Clare and fits the overall plot of the story extremely well. Read Full Review
