    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Oct 9, 2020

    There's not much action in this issue but the handful we do get feels very much like a taste of the good old-fashioned swashbuckling action the old television shows didn't have the budget for. Meanwhile, Francesco Manna's artwork is terrific. Given the amount of panels that could have easily gotten away with being splash pages, Manna definitely expresses tremendous reverence for the mythos and pays homage every chance he gets.Bottom Line: This book is tons of sci-fi/action fun. If you hold it to your ear, you can almost hear the score from the old tv shows. Read Full Review

    Writers Kyle Higgins & Matt Groom have to cram a lot into twenty two pages and it slows down the flow of the narrative exponentially. Artist Francesco Manna continues to kill it even in the face of a ton of dialogue balloons. Read Full Review
