Hunter/Killer Issue #1

Review by Kathy LaFollett

It's a GOOD thing I make some serious bank as a Graphic Artist. Top Cow is going to cost me a lot of change.

Hunter/Killer is an extravaganza of Best Practices in Comic Book creation.

We've got Ultra Sapiens crawling around planet earth, and of course we earthlings of normal report have NO clue they are here or there, or washing our car for that matter. What happens if these Ultra Sapiens go "rouge"? The Hunter/Killers step forward and clean house.

Into Issue 1 we learn quickly that Ultra Sapiens are pretty normal (contextually speaking of course) and have children, families and lives they lead out just like Subpar Sapiens (that would be us). Issue 1 also teaches us that there are good Ultra Sapiens and bad Ultra Sapiens and just like any other race, they war amongst themselves for power.

This is getting interesting, eh?

It looks as though we'll have Ellis, a power by proximity Ultra Sapien to walk us through the coming storylines. Poor kid, just as we and he were trusting and caring about his parents they up and go Ultra Violent on him and...

Never mind, go buy the comic.

Outrageous lead, ink, and paint drive the Ultra Cool writing. Ellis already proves out the theory that Ultra Sapien does NOT mean non-human. Many familiar emotions and tribulations will be able to be written through this new character.

It's imperative you and I both scrounge out a copy of #0. This is a collector series. I can smell the creamy coolness of collectible all the way from here.
