    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Sep 11, 2019

    Collapser #3 closes one door for Liam James, and opens the door to a new world of opportunity for the nursing home employee now turned superhero/DJ. In the case of Liam, with great power comes great fame. The only question is what kind of dangers he will open himself up to with a target on his back bigger than the hole in his chest. Issue #3 out of 6 was the best time to flesh out this world, explain the black hole, and set us up for what comes next. Read Full Review

    Artist Ilias Kyriazis is amazing and will have a hell of a career from this. Mark my words. We are halfway through the series and I'm still looking forward to more. Read Full Review

    Almost smack dab in the middle, Collapser #3 is a story with two halves, but Ilias Kyriazis' art pushes it over the halfway mark on the rating. Be very excited about the interesting and unique concept of the sentient black hole and Liam's father's journey, but be prepared to be disappointed in Liam's cliched behavior once his celebrity status rises. Although, next issue's tease of “Louder than Bombs” bodes well, especially if you're a fan of The Smiths…. Read Full Review

    Wow, so the black hole is actually a sentient being! Didn't think it would happen but it's cool, science meets weird kinda cool and the art is trippy and literally stellar to boot. The personified Black Hole tells Liam the story of Leon James - his father, a mad scientist who exploited his followers and established dictatorship, and Jennifer James - his mother who happened to have helped so many people by doing what was right even when it meant to betray her husband and leave her only child behind in safe hands, it was interesting and quite poignant.

    Again, didn't expect this little black hole to have been so closely associated with Liam's father and mother to begin with. I thought the villain was underutilised even though his ba more
