Intro:

God of the Sun Brigid, has spent eons eliminating all other gods, forcing all the people in the universe to worship her.  The Morrigan, a god of destruction, is the only other god left and all that stands in the way of Brigid’s hostile takeover of the universe.

Thoughts:

The first thing I want to talk about this series is the color scheme.  I love the color palette.  The colors are all super fun and what I would call retro.  It’s actually very similar to the color palettes in the new She-Ra and Steven Universe.  If you like the aesthetic in those shows you might also enjoy the look of this series.

As for the story, this is high fantasy meets science fiction.  Sort of like a lot of eighties cartoons, like Thundercats or the original She-Ra.  There is magic and sword fighting as well as space ships and interplanetary travel.  It’s always interesting to see how writers and artists mix those two genres.  I enjoy seeing what elements to they keep from either genre and how they make them work together.  I enjoyed the mix in this issue and I’m excited to see how what they do with future issues.

I’m not super happy with the main character so far though.  In her defense, this issue didn’t spend a whole lot of time focused on her.  The issue focused on world-building, which I enjoyed, but means character development suffered.  Right now the main character seems kind of flat and I hope that’s just because we don’t know a lot about her yet.  In future issues, we might learn more about her and she could get fleshed out.

I live in the desert and spend a lot of time reading comics and any science fiction I can get my hands on.
Summary
I really enjoy the world and look of this series. I’m also really interested in how the whole sun god versus death god thing will play out. Unfortunately, I’m not all that impressed with the characters and hope that improves with future issues.
