    As I said, superficially Khaal can read a bit like Heavy Metal meets Conan. And it embraces those tropes, but there is something interesting if you want to look deeper at this book. Read Full Review

    It's not for the timid, but it's a strong start to the series. Read Full Review

    Overall then, while the bloated world of comic book science fiction is a tough nut to crack, there are just enough positives in this first issue to suggest that Khaal may very well do just that. The story structure is strong and the artwork is luscious, and while theres always a risk that these kind of titles can crumble under the weight of their initial premise, this is definitely a series to keep an eye on as it develops.

    Oh, but the art is good. Like really, really, really good. If anything just pick it up and look at it, then put it back down. It's not that the story is bad, but it's average. That and the translation feels stuck trying to be authentic to the original wording, but then trying to make sense of it all at the same time. Or it could just be a poorly written story with an okay translation. Whatever your preference, you won't get much out of this book other than great art. Read Full Review
