Reviews: 3
I had been looking forward to this book. I wasn't expecting great things, but I was excited to revisit one of my favorite television characters. So I returned home today to find it on my doorstep, and immediately tore into it. I was on about page 3 or 4 when I sadly decided that it wasn't worth my time... but I read on, just in case I was being too hasty. My opinion did not change. Bring back such iconic characters from the scifi genre to the comic page is a very heavy task that should not be taken lightly... and this was a very disappointing effort.

I got the feeling that the author of this story really doesn't understand the characters he was writing about, and probably had never really paid very close attention to the Stargate franchise. After only a few pages, I was finding issue with the actions of several of the characters. Even if I excuse this out-of-character actions as "creative license", then I still have to say that I found it bland and uninspired. Much of the character dialog can be easily interchanged with nearly any other character.

Also, I feel that the artist has failed to capture the appearance of these well-known characters. Many of the figures are drawn very rigidly, and are barely recognizable as the famous Stargate characters (except in that they are referred to by name). However, the artist does realize his limitations. It seems that when he doesn't feel equal to the task of drawing a character, then he either constantly draws them at a distance, facing away from you, or simply shrouding them in heavy shadows. I'm sure this makes his job easier, but that's an issue. It should be about pleasing the comic reader and making them want to come back for more.
To start with I'd like to make mention of the fact that I would of rated this garbage a zero if possible.

Now then, to the review. I'll keep this simple and quick as it's so bad it doesn't deserve nor provide enough substance for an in depth review. This trade caught my eye as I am a fan of the series and in particular the character of Daniel Jackson. I figured that combining a franchise I like with a medium I enjoy (trade paperback collected volumes) and focusing it on my favorite character could at worst end up in something mildly disappointing. I was wrong. There is absolutely nothing of value in this book.

The art is exactly as the previous review described it. The characters are unrecognizable if their faces are actually shown but for the most part are facing away from the reader or in General Landry's case, constantly in heavy shadow. Aside from that, it's just completely lackluster. The only positive thing I can say about the art is that it is better than the story and dialog it depicts.

Again, I am in complete agreement with the previous review. The story was completely lacking in inspiration and that in itself could of been overlooked if the characters were done right but instead they were written completely lacking substance. I'm almost positive that the writer had absolutely no experience with the characters and was given one or two plot points to throw in to make it jive with the SGU. I've simply never read a comic that was this poorly written.

I've someone gives you this to read then they aren't your friend or haven't read it themselves and purchased it because they know you're a fan of the show. If this was the first comic I had ever read I would swear off the medium for good. I hate this book. I want the 20 minutes of my life back it took it to read and the extra 5 it took for the review as I feel like I had a duty to warn in regards to this book. Again, I hate it. I really truly do.
