    There is a great introduction and the structure to the story is concise and shows great potential for the future issues. Ian Edginton knows the recipe for a successful story. Killer Instinct really provides a much richer environment for the world it takes place in than the quick glimpses provided in the video games. Read Full Review

    Far from captivating, Killer Instinct #1 is a decent enough comic that, according to the publisher will be an epic and worthwhile read. I don't see any evidence of that, but I am willing to read another issue or two. Fans of the franchise, and more specifically, fans that have played the most recent game, may get a kick out of this. For newcomers"you may want to pass. Read Full Review

For a first issue it is neither dense enough with information or captivating enough of a story to really sink its teeth into you. Read Full Review
