Reviews Eternal Empire #1
- Its Avatar Last Airbender meets Game of Thrones, that's all I'm gonna say!
- Promising start to this series! But then, I expected no less from the team behind "Alex & Ada"!! (FYI, that series receives my highest recommendations.)
- It seems I'm alone in this website (so far) in not caring for this first issue. The story's world is interesting. It has hints of communist Russia, with people being forced to work in harshly cold environments. The setting could come straight out of a Siberian tundra.The problem for me is the story and the lack of any weight or emotional heft. The main character is a woman who stands out for her paleness - pale white skin and snow white hair. Muc...
- I love Sarah Vaughn's artwork, I love Jonathan Luna's writing, but Eternal Empire isn't something that I was overly thrilled with upon starting to read it. As much as I was excited for this set to come back together in the end I am pulling this from my comic pull list. It's not that I hated it, it's just that the store line is kind of predictive and seems forced.
- I wasn't terribly moved by this creative team's previous work and this didn't quite grab me either. The art is fine if lacking in the line density I typically prefer, but the issue here is that the storytelling seems a bit splotchy. Hints move quickly, but there's a lack of finesse that the often expositional dialogue only emphasizes.
- Not my bag, but also, my first exposure to these creators. Your mileage may vary.
- Kind of weird. Very simplistic art style that's not cartoon-y. I didn't really care for the art, honestly. I think I'll continue on though, just to see the plot further.
- I'll have to track down the trade of this. I picked up this issue a long time ago and only just read it. I was pretty confused about the backstory at first, but it became clear by the end of the issue. I'm interested to find out more about this world.
