A new comic series kicking off on Kickstarter – details on the Kickstarter and a review of issue #1
Lizard Men Issue 1
Lizard Men #1 is the first chapter in a 6-issue mini-series to be published by Comichaus. Featuring 20 glorious full-colour story pages, it’s Doctor Who meets The Thick Of It meets The Rise & Fall Of Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars.
That front cover gives me a feel of the 2000 AD series ‘Zenith’.
This is a rock and roll issue, with shades of Zenith and Death Wish to it all. It’s easy to get into and draws you in quickly and nicely. The thought of a ex-degenerate rock star becoming Prime Minister is an interesting one. I like the bedding in process as Zamani enters Number 10!
Before that we get a good brief rundown of his life, his rise, fall and then to his eventual rise again!
Behind this, we get some of the mystery, those who are reall in charge. No lizard men yet, but their presence is felt and their agents are in place. The make Zamani an offer…
The art is excellent, with some fun scenes, and even some good action scenes. I like the colouring and the flow of the comic, it all seemed over so quickly!
