Review: Kamen Rider Zero-One #1

Kamen Rider Zero-One #1

I know nothing about Kamen Rider. I’ve seen the character but don’t know the story, powers, really anything. So, going into Kamen Rider Zero-One #1, I was hoping I’d find a comic that balances introducing the character and world to new readers while entertaining long time fans. What It felt like was being thrown into the deep end.

Written by Brandon Easton, Kamen Rider Zero-One #1 is an interesting debut in that it feels like you’ve missed a lot of the story. Arturo has inherited a company from his grandfather and with it some sort of supersuit. There’s others that have similar suits too. Then there’s some beam that downloads the suits powers but also disks to do that as well? It’s all there for these who want to parse the issue but as presented, this is a beginning that feels geared towards those that are familiar with the property.

Kamen Rider Zero-One #1 drops us into the story as Arturo is grilled for the damage that his battles have done, which we haven’t seen. But, he’s thrown into a mysterious conflict with a new villain Rangarok. What is Ragnarok? You can read the comic as Arturo’s assistant explains everything in detail, which feels rather odd since a lot of the characters and concept of the comic itself is not. Kamen Rider Zero-One #1 is plagued by over explanation in some aspects and not enough in other. The fact there’s too much at times highlights the need for more when it comes to the basics of the comic. The new villain is interesting enough and the designs stand out but overall, something doesn’t click here.

The art by Hendry Prasetya is nice. The page layouts really stand out bringing the kinetic feel that manga and anime is known for. The characters look solid, especially Rangarok, as they battle it out in a duel like feel. The comic looks good.

But, looks aren’t everything as Kamen Rider Zero-One #1 has a choppy feel overall like you’re constantly missing details. A mysterious person just stands and watches the battle and is given one thing to say, as if we’re supposed to know who they are. The backstory is explained multiple times but done so in a way that feels like a book report. There’s a stiffness to the narrative that could be part of the charm of the original releases but for a new comic, this is one those new to Kamen Rider might want to avoid.

Titan Comics reveals the Kamen Rider Zero-One comic series creative team!

Announced at the Kamen Rider panel at Anime Expo, Hendry Prasetya will be the artist alongside writer Brandon Easton on the new Kamen Rider Zero-One comic series – published by Titan Comics and Stonebot Comics this Fall!

Kamen Rider Zero-One is an originated comic series based on the Tokusatsu TV series Karmen Rider Zero-One – currently airing on Shout! Factory in the US. The Kamen Rider series features various characters who transform using belts, and sometimes other tools, to battle.

Attendees at the panel also received an early sneak peek at Prasetya’s stunning character designs (NOT FINAL ARTWORK) for hero KAMEN RIDER ZERO-ONE, and a brand-new creation for this comic series – its sinister and mysterious new villain, RAGNAROK! 

Titan Manga and Stonebot to publish the Kamen Rider Kuuga and Atom: The Beginning manga

Titan Manga (new imprint from Titan Comics) has announced a new partnership with Stonebot to publish Kamen Rider Kuuga and Atom: The Beginning manga series. The partnership will also include a brand-new originated Kamen Rider Zero-One comic series.

The partnership kicks-off on October 11, 2022 with the releases of Atom: The Beginning Vol. 1 – an original manga series based on the God of Manga Osamu Tezuka’s world-famous series Astro Boy, which has spawned multiple anime adaptations, video games, and more! Atom: The Beginning is a sci-fi manga about the turbulent lives of two robotics engineering students and their latest revolutionary project: the unassuming yet insanely strong A106, or “Six.”

Based on the original concept and story by Tokusatsu legend Shotaro Ishinomori, Kamen Rider Kuuga marks the return of a classic manga character adapted for the 21st century that’s sure to surprise both new and veteran fans alike.

Kamen Rider Kuuga goes beyond the bounds of a normal adaptation and redefines its hero for modern audiences, expanding its universe and connecting it to other incarnations of the bug-eyed hero in a completely approachable way for new readers who haven’t encountered a Kamen Rider story before. Vol. 1 is due to hit stores November 8, 2022.

Titan will also publish a new, originated comic series based on the Tokusatsu TV series Kamen Rider Zero-One (currently on Shout! Factory in the US). Written by Brandon Easton, this series is due to launch in Fall/Winter 2022.
