    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Jason Jeffords Jr Jan 13, 2020

    TARTARUS #1 reads unlike anything that has been released lately in America. All of its elements work together to make an amazing first issue that'll draw you into the world. Image Comics and the team behind Tartarus very well have a "the best of 2020" contender on their hands. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Quinn Jan 15, 2020

    Tartarus #1 sets the tone for the rest of the series and does some great world-building to introduce us to the political climate and the culture of both Tartarus and the empire. Within the first few pages, the world of Tartarus drew me in very quickly and it doesn't seem to want to let go. Between the exciting plot and beautiful artwork, and maybe due to the cliffhanger at the end of the issue, I'm wallowing in my anticipation for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Tartarus is a fun, gritty and fast-paced first issue and if you like that in your sci-fi, then this is the book for you. I do feel that with the extra page count that this first issue definitely is worth the money and sometimes, you need those extra pages just to get a really good first issue. Read Full Review
