This is a solid, delightful, escapist-fiction type pulp comic book adventure that kids of all ages can enjoy!
If you love ACTION! and ADVENTURE! in the vein of the classic adventure comic strips (by folks like Caniff, Crane, Robbins and Gould!) and movies like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Jurassic Park, YOU LOVE THIS BOOK! BUY IT NOW, TRUE BELIEVERS! DO NOT DELAY!
The story harkens back to comics from a decade plus back as this was pure fun, it was not dark and ugly as most comics are these days. This was just a romp that those who love the classic Godzilla or Gamera movies will love.
Two US Navy flyers crash land on an unknown island and soon discover it is overrun with giant creatures as well as two factions of warring aliens. The flyers (A man and a woman) soon find they have feelings for each other but before they can do anything about it they have to get off the Island.
What ensues is old fashioned adventure and clean fun as our heroes have to race against time to get off the island before it disappears, possibly forever, stranding them where they can never return from.
This graphic novel had everything for me. Giant monsters, aliens, Fighter jets, cute girls and lots of action. You can't go wrong with this one. Graham Nolan is a man who knows when comics used to be written and drawn the right way. There's no politics here, no agenda's, just good clean fun.
I can wholeheartedly tell you to go out and buy this one without any reservations. When you finish reading this one, you'll be thinking to yourself that you remembered this feeling after reading comics from years gone by. It's called enjoyment. Have I mentioned how much fun this story was? Five stars.
This is how it's done! Action SF with strong characters and lots of surprises and a cast as likeable and charming as you'll find anywhere in the medium! A comic to treasure and read and re-read!
Not to say its just for kids, I really enjoyed the illustratios and story. I bought one for each of my kids. I was lucky enough to get them signed by the author. That was a special treat.
