|Look out, Eclipse! The villain got ahold of Pym Particles!|
Trevor Talbott and Scott Meier, the guys behind Eclipse, are two completely normal, average guys who just wanted to make a comic. Heck, as far as I’ve been able to research, it’s their first. And with that knowledge, I now respect these two for what they’ve accomplished. I’ve seen “professional” comics that were much worse than this. While the art flounders at points, it looks really good when it actually decides whether it wants to look realistic or stylized.
|"Stop calling me Nightwing!"|
The first issue spends most of its time setting the stage for the character’s origin story and introducing our (unfortunately slightly generic) villain. Admittedly, the pacing could be better. However, as I said, there really are some interesting ideas here. If the next issue picks up the pace a bit and delivers on some of the mysteries promised by the first issue, this could be really good.
All in all, I’d say this isn’t a bad first issue for a first outing, and I think this title could be pretty interesting. There are a total of five issues planned, and if this sounds like your cup of tea, you might want to check out this series. I know I probably will. I want to see how this ends. Have a link!
