    The issue does leave the reader with a few head scratches to be followed up on as the story progresses. Just how did King Kull and his companions end up in the present day? Only time will tell. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Lacey Jackson Jun 27, 2017

    The story, written by Tom Waltz, manages to be informative without dragging on. Well-structured flashbacks allow us insight through the eyes of other characters, avoiding pointless reminiscing by Kull. The dialogue manages to feel mystical and grand without being cheesy; Kull isn't going around in the 21st century talking like a Shakespearean man. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Thomas Hulett Jul 15, 2017

    Overall, I'm not sure exactly how I feel about this new take on King Kull. Being a longtime fan myself and having read the source material, as well as most of the comics adaptations that have come before, I'm unsure about this new take on the character. Perhaps my expectations for the story were too much for Waltz's story to overcome. Readers not as familiar with the character as I am may find a cool man out of time story. With all that said, I'm tempted to come back for the second issue just to see where he is trying to go. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jun 28, 2017

    I will likely try out the next issue of Kull Eternal. It's not a bad first issue, but it's by no means great. It's average, and sometimes that's okay. It doesn't mean you shouldn't try it for yourself and since it hits so perfectly in the middle of the scale, some readers are bound to enjoy it more than others. That's why comics are fun, but from what I read and say and digested, it's just okay. We'll see what the second issue has to offer. Read Full Review
