The GoodIt's not often we see characters that are bound to using wheelchairs. I have to admit that when I first heard that the main character, Stuart Trautmann would be in one, I wondered if it was going to be too cliché. It turns out it's not. Leave it to Paul Cornell to write a character having to deal with awkward responses from other people around.
As an introductory issue, we find out about the major players and see the origin of "Soldier Zero." While there isn't a huge amount of action, it all is executed nicely as the story pulls you in. You know how the "origin" will most likely end but taking the trip is a fun ride. We aren't given all the answers or background on Soldier Zero. We're given just enough to move the story forward and give you a reason to come back for issue #2.
The character designs are nice and Javier Pina does a good job creating different looks for everyone. The style clearly fits in with the rest of the BOOM! titles, even if this is set in a different 'universe.'
