    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Jan 6, 2011

    Dark Sun is quite different from the Dungeons and Dragons title. While it does have a fantasy feeling, it doesn't feel like high fantasy. Instead the story and world play out more like a Robert E. Howard tale than anything else. For those who like barbarian tales, Dark Sun #1 is a book for you. A fun adventure, simple plot and good art work together to earn Dark Sun #1 4 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jan 7, 2011

    As an ongoing series I might be slightly worried that "Dark Sun" doesn't have a lot of plot going on, but as a mini-series it works perfectly. There's enough here to make me want to read the remaining chapters, and that's what a first issue needs to deliver. I might not play the game anymore, but it is fun to get another trip back into the realm of "Dark Sun." Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Kyle Garret & Karyn Pinter Jan 15, 2011

    Maybe its best to leave the D&D to the roll players in a basement somewhere. I dont see this comic taking off into something more than just a second-hand fantasy story. Best just to save your money for that shiny new 20-sided die. Read Full Review
