tobenracicot's Translucid #1 - Wild Horses review

Horses and WTF?

The Good

I am always open to a new series. I like to support these new projects. I had no idea what the crap Translucid was about. I just thought, hey Boom, why not?

So I jumped in only knowing a small piece of this would involve a horse. Boy, did I ever receive a treat! Holy snap. What a piece of work. I have my opinions and ideas of what is going on here and it is genius.

The story involves a small child who spends a lot of time by himself. He is a fan of sci-fi and superheroes. This is, to me, an escape from his alcoholic father. He creates this world in his head, and carries it over to his dreams. Lucid dreaming is a term used for when you know you are dreaming and are able to alter the state because you are aware of what is going on.

The characters that this boy creates and the plot that is building is really interesting. The character design in awesome! The art is a big win in my books. It is unique and different. The colors create a really awesome tone that is totally matched with the writing and story.

The Bad

Because this is a first issue there was a little of me going - What is going on? That, however, is not necessarily a bad thing. It creates a draw that will keep me coming back for more. There is a lot of room to build.

The Verdict

If you want a book that doesn't involve Spider-Man or Batman, go get this book. Boom is really going to deliver. I am totally hooked on the art and the story. The character design on the ?hero? is so cool. I am excited to see how this builds and the pay off that we get down the road. I am onboard. Go Translucid, fulfill all your wildest dreams!

    Quite a few musicians lately including Tom Morello, Max Bemis, Girard Way, Claudio Sanchez and more have infiltrated comics. I have been a fan of Claudio and his band (Coheed & Cambria) for a really long time. I saw C&C play live at the Metro in Chicago like 7 years ago, and after that, I finally started to get into the comic book universe that Claudio created around this band and all their concept albums. This new series Translucid doesn’t seem to be connected to the other works C...
