    Taarna #1 is an exciting revival of a cult icon. While the issue does move at a breakneck pace, this is largely do to the issue's dialogue-free nature. Much of the storytelling is presented visually, taking full advantage of the medium. With great art, great writing, and a captivating protagonist, there's no reason to not check this out.

    If there is one reason to pick this issue up, it is the gorgeous, full colour artwork. The Escorzas excel at quiet scenes and figure drawing, but the battle scenes get a bit difficult to follow. The plot is interesting enough but there is not a lot of it yet as the action takes centre stage.
