    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Dec 7, 2008

    The book's foreword describes this book as "a delightfully improbably mix of Silver Age adventure comics, Jonny Quest, Aquaman, the Sub-Mariner, seaQuest, Star Wars, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" and more. That description is right on the money, but it's not necessarily something to celebrate. Piscopo isn't just inspired or influenced by these fantastic ideas. It's more like he's plucked pieces from them all and has sewn them together. Capt'n Eli comes off as being something of a Pop-Culture Frankenstein Monster. As a result, it feels more like a product than an effort to tell a story. That being said, it should be effective when it comes to appealing to kids (at least I'd like to think so). It's just not something parents will enjoy along with their kids. Instead, they might want to sit down with them and watch a Jonny Quest DVD or give them some of Marvel's Invaders comics from the 1970s. Read Full Review
