    AIPT - Collier Jennings Aug 30, 2023

    Local Man: Gold #1 is a blast from the past in every sense of the word, using time travel to craft a poignant story while also paying tribute to the early years of Image Comics. It's also a great standalone story, to boot. Definitely pick this up if you've heard the positive buzz about Local Man, or if your inner '90s kid wants a sophisticated comic book story that also happens to feature a dragon-powered superhero and a four-armed cyborg.
