Kaptara #1

Kaptara #1

$0.99
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT

A space expedition goes horribly wrong because if it didn't there would be no story! Reluctant explorer Keith Kanga and his crew crash land on KAPTARA, a world filled with danger and weird danger and dangerous weirdos! And if he can't survive then earth, the place where YOU live, is doomed! Join CHIP ZDARSKY (Sex Criminals the Duck) and KAGAN McLEOD (Infinite Kung Fu) as they put the 'fi' back into 'sci-fi' and pretty much disregard the 'sci' part in this epic story of punching and love!

BONUS REVIEW by Gavin Rehfeldt


While Zdarsky (whose credits include both art and writing duties, including the fantastic Howard the Duck where he's scripting) has a fantastic sense of whimsy and humor, he's wearing his silliness a bit too overtly with Kaptara #1. None of these completely new characters are particularly relateable and their humor comes off more defensive than endearing. They are a diverse group, and this book has the potential for a loyal following in scifi adventure fans because of that and Kaptara's off-center premise plus a curious conclusion. For me, the stakes are uncertain and I don't know who to root for. McLeod's art (with color assists by Becka Kinzie) are exciting, eye-popping, and deserving of recognition. Now, the next issue includes lovingly rendered "Cat Tanks" so I will check out #2 to at least see what that's about...

I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
