    Golden Rage #1 is a familiar but solid start. The concept might be something we've seen, but the detail of the debut feels like a real world and gives us much more than just the battle and survival.

    Golden Rage #1 is a dialog heavy book, but fails to utilize all the talking to establish anything beyond what is happening in that exact moment. It is refreshing though to see realistic character bodies and voices. Read Full Review
