BONUS REVIEW by Gavin Rehfeldt

Matt Fraction's new Image Comics #1 is a resounding disappointment. While colorful and filled with interesting character design, this comic is a muddled confusion. The caption boxes seem disorganized and two massive foldout pages at the start of the issue are filled with daunting and ultimately inconsequential text. A cosmic adaptation of Homer's The Odyssey feels like a botched attempt to ape Jonathan Hickman, and, further, is yet another recent Image #1 that by the end there is no clear definitive statement drawing readers to issue #2. It's hard to imagine the man who writes Hawkeye and Sex Criminals would find this accessible and/or enjoyable.

I give it 2 out of 10 Grahams
