    Horizon's world is nothing short of breathtaking. The contrast between mechanical dinosaurs and human characters designed like they come from a high tech Stone Age is very unique to the PS4 game and Maulina has captured it faithfully in the comic book page. That same sense of wonder and danger that one gets while playing the game transfers over to the comic, with vibrant colors and deadly machines inhabiting a blossoming natural word. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Quinn Aug 5, 2020

    Overall, Horizon Zero Dawn #1 feels a tad short but it sets up the main characters and the plot well. If youre not familiar with the game, youll likely be very confused about the natural order of Horizon Zero Dawn's world. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Kevin McDowall Aug 5, 2020

    Overall, issue #1 is a delight but will need more time for the world to develop and let the overall narrative unfold for Talanah and Aloy. There will be plenty for fans to sink their teeth into in the long wait for the next game. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Larry Jorash Aug 5, 2020

    While lacking, the story is simple enough and the pages are splashed full of gorgeous artwork. The extra story art and concept designs from the game itself are also very cool. Read Full Review
