The Gold Key universe is here! A sinister force casts its shadow over our world, from Turok's dinosaur game preserve, to Samson's metropolitan slums, to Dr. Solar's African relief mission, to Magnus' war-torn duty station. Will this unseen hand unite the legendary heroes, or divide them? Story by Eisner-nominee Phil Hester (Green Arrow, Wonder Woman, Mythic) and art by sensational newcomer Brent Peeples (Last of the Greats, Green Hornet: Legenderry)!

    Readers and aficionados of the old Gold Key line will appreciate this for both it's nostalgia and the idea of watching how these characters might be recreated in the new millennium. People who read and enjoyed some of the 'modernized' revisions of these characters will probably like this. If you don't know anything about Gold Key Comics, you still might find this interesting, just to see where Hester is leading this diverse cast of characters. Read Full Review

    With Dr. Terra more talked about than shone here and a tease that's lost on me in the final page, Gold Key Alliance is a book that survives – and survives well – by the nature of its primary characters. They're all still operating independently and we almost have what feels like an anthology book here right now as opposed to a connected book. I like each of the characters and the pieces we're getting are close to offering up something really neat when it starts coming together. But it may be moving too slow for some folks, I'm sure. For me, it's just interesting to see this world design explored considering the diversity of situations, which in many ways is just like the real world in how it's really varied and engaging. A lot of that is owed to Peeples as he definitely makes each of them distinct but connected, providing the right kind of visual continuity to really bind it all together. Read Full Review

    I recommend this to any one who loved any or all of these characters in the past. For me, Turok was a childhood favorite of mine, so it's a joy watching him again with the others, some I am familiar with, others not so much. Also if you've never heard of any of these characters I recommend it even more. Read Full Review
