    Inspired by the creators love of zombie movies and Wally Wood and Joe Orlando and all the old EC horror/sci-fi stuff of years past, this is a satisfying enough read, even if it appears to be a self contained introductory tale, rather than a long running story arc. All the familiar elements are in place: phaser guns, alien worlds, rocket ships, tough as nails Pulp inspired space adventurer. The book comes alive in vibrant, colorful pages by Moore including a masterful full page depicting the big bad of the book. The cover is a throwback to the great space adventures popular in the 50s. It will appeal to the fans of this genre the most, but will it give general comic book readers enough entertainment for their buck to keep them coming back for more? Id wager a phaser pistol and a rocket pack that it just might. Read Full Review

    Meanwhile, back at the beginning of the issue, a malevolent creature has seemingly devoured everyone aboard a space station. Its a monster that Huston, of course, will have to deal with in future issues. Read Full Review

    However, these problems are not particularly damaging at this point; by examining the lead so closely in this first issue, Remender gives himself a firm foundation for future issues. As long as those future issues round out the Fear Agent world with some additional cast members and some interesting plots for them to get involved in, I can accept a first issue that puts the emphasis elsewhere.

    Where will all this go? For all of this reviews pseudo-intellectual posturing, its unclear whether the universal food chain will play a large role in this series. As of the first issue, all thats really clear is that this is an space adventure comic, and since that sort of thing seems to be experiencing a revival of sorts, that may be enough. But if the creators let the true gem shine, there are some really great possibilities for Fear Agent. Stay tuned. Read Full Review
