    Overall I really enjoyed the first volume of Eclipse. While it may not be the most original sci-fi story out there it really makes up for it with a great mix of the sci-fi/horror/mystery and even a little dash of Conspiracy Theory all mixed into one. The writing while good was a little quick for my liking not really giving us a whole lot other than the basics of what is going on at any certain time. Would of liked to seen a few of the plot points fleshed out a little more. The ending of the arc was also a little quick in my opinion, it seemed it was hinting as a grand conspiracy type cover-up but the ending just quickly dismissed it. Would of liked to have a little more of a hook to really grab me for arc 2. The art is fantastic. It really gives the scorched world a desolate feeling to it. The only issue with the art I had was that when the characters are in the Iceman suits its VERY hard to tell who is who. Would of been nice for a little more individual detail in each suit to help the reader out. All my issues aside this is a great sci-fi book with a lot of promise going forward! Highly recommend it!
