    I little slow to start with an excess of backstory, but picks up and begins what appears to be a fun adventure story with a strange collection of colourful characters. Read Full Review

    I would look forward to reading more Miru. My one reservation is, like I had re-enforced with Aquaman this last week, it is very easy to start a story and much harder to maintain it. Miru's story is pretty familiar and while this issue reads well and seems to have some creativity to it, it could be a story that doesn't have anywhere interesting to go. However, as a single first issue, Miru is a good likable read with a pleasantly unconventional style. Fantasy is common because it is often easy to write because writers assume, like with horror, that it doesn't require anything more than applying the usual tropes. Because of this, it's rare I find new fantasy books I like, so consider me gratefully surprised that this one fits the bill. At the very least, you'll see me back for Issue #2. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 16, 2016

    Much like the hardcore Game of Thrones fan explaining the show to a new viewer, this issue felt incredibly confusing, overly-complicated, and ultimately I don't think I retained any of the information. (Once again, I love Game of Thrones so don't hate me). The story of this book hasn't really started yet. This issue was about bringing you up to speed about the world that the story takes place in. The art would be good, but it feels like there are conflicting art styles. Ultimately, I'm not very impressed by this issue. Read Full Review
