    I'm not usually one for Prequel series, but I'm willing to give Pierce a shot! I would have preferred; however, that he would go farther back instead. I would love to see the pre-Gold dominated society and the war where they concurred the solar system. (It could even have had droids :D ) But maybe that will be an actual book series in the future... or tv series!

    It's been years since I bought an actual comic but I'm a huge fan of

    series so of course I preordered this the moment it was available (I even ordered the two different covers because I'm a geek and I just had to have them!). Let me start by saying that this is short so it's not really a full story on it's own, it's more of an introduction to the story that we're going to see play out over the remaining comics (I believe there will be 6 in total). Each issue will probab

    It's been years since I bought an actual comic but I'm a huge fan of

    series so of course I preordered this the moment it was available (I even ordered the two different covers because I'm a geek and I just had to have them!). Let me start by saying that this is short so it's not really a full story on it's own, it's more of an introduction to the story that we're going to see play out over the remaining comics (I believe there will be 6 in total). Each issue will probably be around 30 pages so when you combine them all together you're probably looking at roughly a graphic novel sized story (around the same length as a volume of Saga) overall but split into 6 sections. I would imagine if there is demand for it they'll probably print a bind up in graphic novel format but I've not been able to find any confirmation of that one way or the other so I'm taking the chance to buy the paper copies now while they're definitely available.

    Now you've got more of an idea what you're actually getting let's get to the interesting stuff like the artwork and the story. Like I said this is more of an introduction but it's enough to tell us that it's set before

    but after the Iron Rain and most excitingly the main character is one Fitchner au Barca. I know I'm not going to be the only one happy to find out more about his background & I really hope we get to see a baby Sevro at some point too!

    The artwork is wonderful, quite dark in colour but that fits the gory and violent tone of the story so far perfectly. I love the added touch that each conversation bubble is coloured to match the rank of the character speaking. It's hard to say much more here because we're only just starting this journey but I'm enjoying being back in this world in a more visual format and I'm definitely looking forward to reading the remaining issues. I just wish we didn't have to wait a whole month for the next one!

    A comic that claims is going to give us the backstory of the Sons of Ares. But, in this entry, it just rehashes what goes on in the Gold school with an intro and conclusion teaser.

    For anyone who hasn't had the chance to read

    , you'd need that backstory. For someone like me, who has, I wanted more new details. I didn't get them.

    I suspect that these comics, another coming out in June, are whetting the appetites of readers for the 2018 debut of

    The art is beautiful but not breath-taking or highly stylized like

    .

    The story takes place in a world I've come to love. But, it was only 32 pages and that was not enough.

    On the other hand, I actually bought this comic. I wasn't patient enough to recommend it for purchase at the library and then wait to see if they picked it up. I had to have it NOW. That says something for how much I love it. Having worked as a librarian, I take my book purchasing very seriously.

    If you're not a die-hard fan like me, you may want to wait until the libraries get their hands on it. As I said, this entry doesn't give the reader much beyond a small window into Brown's world. If you're satisfied with crumbs, buy it now.

    I was absolutely lost during the entire thing. I found the story hard to follow even though I was extremely familiar with the world and the divisions of classes by color. I know all about the reds, the bronzes, the irons, the golds. I know what the House of Mars is and what the red uprising came to be. But, I was completely lost. I can not help but think that if someone had never read any of the novels and they picked up this comic that the story would be near incomprehensible.

    I did not care for the artwork and because I have limited experience with comics I am not sure how sound my judgment is.

    If I were to go with my gut and be blunt I would say the artwork was horrible and the story confusing and indecipherable. But I won't say those things because this medium is just not for me. I blame myself almost as much as I do the creators of this offering.

    I will not be reading
