Page 45 Review by Jonathan

"For a Metabaron, defeat is not an option.
"Victory or death. And if I die in battle, my death will be a triumph!"

Errr... not quite sure how that works, but there's certainly no doubt the Metabaron with no name is a glass-half-full kinda guy. Still, when you've never been defeated by any foe, indeed when no Metabaron has ever been defeated, optimism is bound to be running high. And maybe a smidgeon of high-octane hubris to boot! This time around though, our wandering warrior has a tough task ahead of him if he's to acquire the four secret weapons that will allow him to drive the reptilian Hulzgeminis back into their own Universe.

It's been a while since the last new Metabaron material so "Was it worth the wait?" is the big question. For fans of the series almost certainly, as this work picks up right where the others left off, though special mention must be made of Travis Charest's (and also Zoran Janjetov's) exquisite and intricately detailed art. It's hard to comprehend how this is the same artist who used to illustrate Jim Lee's WILDCATS back in the proverbial day, and it would be remiss of me not to observe that his skills have clearly continued to improve in the interim to a now truly exceptional level.

Those new to the whole Metabaron saga might be a little non-plussed by this work, especially given the somewhat thin nature of Jodorowsky's plot, but that's never really been the point with this series in many ways. If this piques your interest though, I do highly recommend the METABARONS ULTIMATE COLLECTED EDITION.
