    While the stiffness and the lack of facial expressions are present as hallmarks of Gulacys style, there is also a flatness to his work here that makes it not as good as his best efforts from 30 years ago. Still, his style is well-suited for secret agents and science fiction, and Ill take a lesser effort by Gulacy over the best efforts by most contemporary comic book illustrators. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed the first issue of this oversized mini series. I can't wait for the next issue as we get to the heart of the mission and get to know the characters a little more. This is a comic book that any science fiction, conspiracy or fan of World War II books should check out. This is an excellent start to a mini series. Read Full Review

    It's a fun divergence as comics go -- a snappily-paced action adventure story set against a science fiction background, but it has some hiccups. As I mentioned earlier, this book runs pretty dry in the middle of the book when comic book science fiction theory gets explained, but the pacing and action before and after more than make up for any slowness this story incurs. After the explanation and set-up of this issue, there is certain to be a more brisk pace in the next issue as the quartet find themselves facing a most unexpected foe. Read Full Review

    I've never been a big fan of Paul Gulacy's work, so this title had that going against it from the start. I find his characters' faces are too elongated, and that holds true with this effort as well. He certainly manages to achieve a fairly realistic look for this impossible scenario, and he and assistant inker Charles Yoakum do a solid job of establishing a tense, dark atmosphere. I was also impressed with the artist's depiction of the doomsday virus' physiological effects. But another problem I have with Gulacy's art is that he really doesn't offer much of a variety for body types and faces. Too many characters look far too much alike, and that made it especially difficult to follow all of the action. Read Full Review
