Ultraman narrowly averted a catastrophe decades in the making. The world was saved - but, also, forever changed.
Now...come the consequences.
Much of the populace regard their defenders with suspicion. Enemies hide in plain sight, and even those closest to Shin Hayata don't necessarily have faith in the Giant of Light. But at last, a long-thought-lost comrade has mysteriously returned!
That's a good thing...right?
The RISE is over. The training wheels are off, and the stakes have never been higher. THE TRIALS OF ULTRAMAN begin here!

    Final Thoughts:The Trials of Ultraman #1 has good art and good action but is mostly a setup issue to set the stage for the story to come. Shin is portrayed with a wholesome Peter Parker/Spider-Man vibe, and the copious exposition isn't slowed down at all with the brisk pace. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 15, 2021

    The Trials of Ultraman #1 is setting up a different kind of story while reminding us of how we got here. For that, it works well as an introduction to the series and a setup issue. It does feel short, though, especially with the backup stories padding out the thickness of this book. It's not so much a decompression problem since there are many plots set up or revisited, but simply not enough happens within each plot to totally hook the reader. Fans of the original series will dig it, though, and it's setting up Shin and Ultraman for all sorts of trials. Read Full Review
