Be careful what you wish for! Young Dorno of the Herculoids clan wants to make his own way in the world, free of Zandor and Tara, his parents. But when that world is the planet Amzot, and a strange sentient being named Animan wants it for his own, Dorno may grow up too fast!

    The Fandom Post - Richard Gutierrez Apr 19, 2018

    With a narrative which anchors itself upon trite story exposition, this issue does not have the necessary emotional impact it would if we did not have the preconception of what will happen wallowing in the back the audiences' mind as we read this story. It is only the phenomenal artistic portrayal of the actors and environment which rescues it from becoming a forgettable anecdote of the Herculoids, all while anticipating the disingenuous promise this arc will turn into something other than the expected ending of a classic and overused tale.

    Animan is probably the most twisted and dangerous villain this series has had yet, and the issue does a great job of fleshing out the Herculoids. And Lopresti's art continues to be perfect for paying tribute to these classic characters. Read Full Review

    All in all, this issue was a lot of fun to read. I think the best part is Aaron Lopresti’s art. I’ve always been a big fan of his over the years and I’m always glad to see his work. I can’t say a bad thing about his art. Read Full Review

    This is clearly the ABC after school special version of Future Quest Presents. The focus on Dorno is smart. He is a teenager, trying to figure himself out. He gets exactly what he wants and, like a teenager, he is not sure what to do with it. There is a lot of truth to this issue and is always the case with anything written by Rob Williams, the truth is always evident. Not sure if this needs to be a two parter, but Rob Williams rarely leads us astray. Read Full Review

    Good to finally have an arc about the Herculoids.

    Because it's still rated T for Teen, I'll give this issue a benefit of the doubt and assume the arc isn't simply "Dorno learns not to be reckless".
    I've anticipated this issue because the Birdman story was compelling while the Mightor story was dull.
    I wish there were more background on why it's always robots that invade Amzot. (Other than killing them produces no blood or guts or gore.)
    The characters are well drawn and in particular the art captures their emotions convincingly. I am not a fan of the inking of backgrounds; too monochromatic for my tastes.
    The conflict between Dorno and Zandar is very realistic. I'm hoping that the genie -- oops I mean Animan -- will be revealed to be a more complex character than he cu more
