I really enjoyed the first two issues of this series.  I’m a bit behind checking out the third one, but this could be a great sleeper hit.

Review – Twilight Guardian #1


Bookmark and Share

Twighlight Guardian #1Such a fantastic first issue.  Twilight Guardian #1 is what I’m looking for in a first issue.  It sets up a mystery, gives an entertaining and likable main character and some great art to boot.  This Top Cow Pilot Season winner is written by Troy Hickman with art by Siddharth Kotian.

The tale of a lone, dedicated hero patrolling her nine block suburban neighborhood captured the imaginations of fans during 2008’s Pilot Season and after heated voting emerged as one of the winning titles.

Now creator and writer Troy Hickman (Common Grounds) returns with a four issue limited series, which will delve into Twilight Guardian’s past, her motivations for crime-fighting, and even give her an arch-nemesis in the terrifying Dusk Devil! Joining Hickman is up-and-coming artist Siddharth Kotian (Eat The Dead). Issue #1 features a beautiful painted cover by Eric Jones (Hack/Slash, Unknown).

The series is only four issues, but there’s something I really like about it.  I can guess where it’s going and time will tell, but overall I really enjoy it.  It features a strong woman in the lead roll and a mysterious villain.  There’s just something to it.  The art is pretty solid, writing interesting and overall it’s another fascinating look as to what makes a hero super.
