No One Left to Fight #1 Review

Title: No One Left to Fight #1
Publisher: Dark Horse
Words: Aubrey Sitterson
Art: Fico Ossio
Published: July 3, 2019

Publisher’s Summary: They’ve saved the planet countless times, but what happens after the final battle has been won? Creators Aubrey Sitterson (The Comic Book Story of Professional Wrestling, G.I. Joe) & Fico Ossio (Spider-Man, Revolution) take inspiration from the legendary Dragon Ball to tell a story of regret, resentment, and growing older, one that asks, ”What does a fighter do when there’s no one left to fight?” For fans of Dragon Ball and other fight manga!


Review

Just like the publisher’s summary says, No One Left to Fight is most certainly geared toward fans of fight manga; thankfully, the creative team hits the nail on the head with this debut issue.

Creative odes and tributes paid to other genres or specific works often find themselves in the shadow of whatever it is they’re trying to pay tribute to; this isn’t an issue for No One Left to Fight, not as of yet, at least. Co-creators Aubrey Sitterson and Fico Ossio have crafted an interesting, lived-in world that’s populated with authentic sounding and acting characters. This issue works to introduce these characters, an although there isn’t a great deal of action, there are enough hints–enough teases–to leave readers wanting more.

The final battle may have been won, but, come issue’s end, it is made clear that there is still a great deal of fighting left to be done.

Bottom Line

Although it takes some time for the ball to get rolling–for the punches to start flying–No One Left to Fight promises nothing short of an epic, hard-hitting ride.

The Worst Dude is funny, irreverent, and profane as well as delightfully packed with swashbuckling adventure. Definitely worth a look.

Jupiter’s Legacy Is Not Watchmen and That’s Okay: Netflix Original Series Review

Jupiter’s Legacy hits incredibly hard while offering viewers a well-crafted blend of caped-crusading-escapism and social commentary; this combination makes for a grounded viewing experience that’s as exciting as it is though-provoking. Jupiter’s Legacy is a must-watch series.

Eve #1 Review

Eve is more than just a typical “save the planet” story. It is more about a little girl’s courage and a love that endures even in simulation. Armed with the fake bear and a dinghy, her adventure starts.
