Kookaburra K...I know a Kookaburra is a bird. What does it have to do with a comic set in space? As much as I love sci-fi, there's just something about sci-fi comics that I can't fully get into. I think it's mainly that there's too much color in the comics. This comic with art by Humberto Ramos and colors by Leondardo Olea might change my opinion.
As I mentioned, I think the biggest problem people will have with this is the price. The question is, would you rather pay more for some solid entertainment or pay a little less for the same stuff you read all the time. What I liked about Kookaburra K is that it is a different comic. Is the story entirely original? It's a little hard to say at this point but then, a lot of stories are almost variations of other ones. What remains to be seen is where things will go after this first issue.
Didier Crisse is a writer born in Brussels. I love that Marvel is working on bringing over the works from creators in other countries. Humberto Ramos' art is fun to look at. There have been times in the past when I felt his style didn't quite fit with the book he was working on but I really dig it here. The great thing about starting fresh with all these new characters is anything can happen. You don't have to be familiar with decades of continuity to know what is going on. While this may not be the absolute greatest comic I read, it was incredibly refreshing to read something that wasn't quite like forty other books that came out last week. Give it a shot.
