    I liked this first issue quite a bit. It's well-paced, easy to follow, and introduces so much in a satisfying story. It reveals a world well worth exploring. Read Full Review

    All in all, it's an enjoyable, all-ages fantasy book that feels like what might happen if you put Tellos, The Warlord, and Bone into a blender. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins May 1, 2019

    Gogor is a delightful fantasy with a simple hero drawn into an adventure much larger than he could have imagined. Although the title character appears only briefly, he does look to be an imposing fellow. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Mateo Guerrero Apr 13, 2019

    Of course, this is just the first issue of Gogor. From what I can tell, Garing hopes to spin this story into a Fantasy Epic. Having a setting too complex to explain in a single issue is the sort of problem you kind of want to have with Epic stories. While much of its setting and players remain unclear by issue's end, Garing delivers more than enough to keep us reading. We're sure to learn a whole lot more about Altara, Amarno,and the eponymous Gogoras the series continues. Read Full Review

    Hopefully, Gogor can fix the issues and improve as a family friendly fantasy story that is needed. By taking the entire comic on, may ultimately cause its demise. Read Full Review
