    Mann's World #1 is a good start that has me want to read more. There's a lot of potential and I want to see where it all goes. Hopefully, the comic doesn't just devolve into a story we've seen so many times before. There's a lot of space to really discuss the ideas and concepts set up in the debut and I'm hoping the comic embraces its worthy discussion instead of just leaning into the action. Read Full Review

    In this sci-fi book, four buddies take an adventure vacation to a resort on a wild planet. They run afoul of the locals and lost control of their craft a few hundred miles away from home base. They're left to their own skills to get back but have to contend with po'd locals, wild creatures and unforgiving terrain/climate.

    Story is ok, art is never better than "could be better" and occasionally drifts into distractingly bad.
