Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
So purty it is, it is. I find it funny though because of the color scheme used I still think of Voltron as I read General Jack Cosmo. This book as great colors, great character designs and jaw dropping backgrounds. It’s even funny that the artwork can fit in with all the words floating around. Panel to panel though this book nails it and it is just done right, a great visual treat.

Story: 4.0 out of 5
I bet in a few years we will all find a book by Aaron Shaps on the Best Sellers list and be shocked that he started by writing some comics. Much like in issues #1, we have words upon words, giving us a in-depth story that is worth the price of 3 books alone. The dialogue is good, but I still lose a little on the specific references. That is not taking away from the overall though, action and humor are in abundance in this one.

Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
I wouldn’t be scared of these vampire men if I had GJC with me. The action is there, the story is there and now you can be there too, just buy this book. The panels look amazing from page to page. Oh and did I mention how much story you’re getting got you $3? Yeah this is one any Flash Gordon or even Flesh Gordon fan should be reading.
