Overall, I found this to be an interesting story. I always did have a weak spot for evil versus evil stories, and this one pits some of the best against each other. Now, it is true that with so many characters placed into the story, too many are reduced to a mere cameo appearance. But, that said, I did find this to be a very entertaining story. It’s survival of the fittest, or should I say “baddest”? Who do you think is going to win?
Thanks for your time folks.
Sincerely, R.A. McDowell
I thought the art was very cool - the alien landscape was nicely rendered, and there were plenty of splash pages depicting dozens of notable baddies. And I have no argument with the cast of characters, which despite the shortage of heroes, was very impressive. But the story really didn't live to the possibilities inherent in the original setup. These characters in this environment could have taken us into some really dark territory - "Lord of the Flies" or even "Heart of Darkness" stuff. Instead the story goes in a direction that was perhaps less predictable, but ultimately nowhere near as meaningful. And not to sound ghoulish, but given the plot, it seemed hard to believe there weren't more deaths. But although a great deal more might have been done with this idea, it was still a modestly entertaining adventure. Each chapter seemed very short, but at least that kept the plot (such as it was) moving along. Nothing very special, though. Warning to newbies: a moderate degree of familiarity with the characters involved is pretty much required or the story would make very little sense and fall awfully flat. Three and half stars.
