Review: Space Riders: Vortex of Darkness #1

Space Riders: Vortex of Darkness #1

It’s been twenty years since the riders defeated the Destroyer God of Evil and saved the galaxy. But when The Mother of All Evil Gods appears and threatens to take control of every dimension and every strain of possible reality, the now cybernetically-enhanced ex-riders will come together and travel into her mind to ASSASSINATE HER SOUL! Space Riders: Vortex of Darkness #1 kicks off a suicidal mission into an infinite vortex of blood and death!

Space Riders: Vortex of Darkness #1 jumps twenty years ahead since the last volume and the riders have separated from each other. The issue has no problem dropping you into the action with assassins attacking Peligro delivering attitude fantastic visuals. From there, it’s space gods and cosmic weirdness. It’s clear writer Carlos Giffoni loves Jack Kirby as the series drips the cosmic craziness.

Twenty years have passed since the events of the previous two volumes, separating the riders from each other. Things start off with, assassins attacking Peligro for reasons unknown. Yet, they are swiftly eliminated in battle when Mono calls him using the stars themselves. Peligro manages to arrive in time to save Mono from the spirt of Maria Lionza. Mono reveals the strange, mystical origin story of the women and the threat her return represents to the universe. Will the riders save the universe again?

The art by Alexis Ziritt is a fantastic blend of psychedelic color schemes and science fiction. It took feels like a love letter to Kirby and psychedelic 70s rock posters. Ziritt shows us the lethality and combat prowess Peligro has retained, as he easily fights off and dispatches his assassins. It sets up the character as one who might be able to take on a god. Ziritt also delivers some fantastic visuals as we learn more about the gods and what threat looms.

Space Riders: Vortex of Darkness #1 is the start of the latest cosmic space opera that is a love letter to comic creator greats while forging its own path.
