Sci-fi greatness begins, but buy the collected stories,
This review is from: Shakara (Hardcover)
Excellent artwork and a frantic story line combine to take me back to my childhood, huddled over sci-fi greatness in 2000AD. Whilst I wasn't reading the comic when SHAKARA was published it has all the ingredients for a great saga. Henry Flint's artwork is drop dead gorgeous, the detail fantastic and quirky story. It all combines to engage and leave me want more. As an introduction I was reminded (being old enough to remember) of Nemesis' start and the strange alure of the anti-hero. I can't wait for the next volume.
My only suggestion would be that unless you're bothered by the marginal scaling of the artwork I'd buy 'SHAKARA The Avenger'. That volume has the collected stories, not this volume; I've got them both sitting in front of me.
