This is the story of a happy nuclear family. A young boy goes missing while playing catch in the park with his father. He is nowhere to be found. As time goes on, the father is suspected of killing his son. The marriage decays, the father drinks, the mother might stray, and the other child is ignored. Fast forward one year, and the lost son returns, but in the form of a 30 year old (or so) grown man who has the body of Conan and the mental and physical scars that accompany a few decades of fantastical battles. And then the story begins.
Depending upon your perspective, you'll get different things out of this book - this largely depends upon what character(s) or event you identify with. You might focus on the fractured marriage, the lost child or the return of the hero. Or you might look at this from the outside as a neighbor or a cop. It's a story that feels familiar, but Mr. Williamson has put a twist on it. And that makes it all worth it.
Our story begins with a father and son playing catch in the woods. When son Mikey runs after the ball, he never comes back. After a year of being a missing person's case, Mikey returns, years old armed with medieval weapons. He claims to have been sucked into fantasy world, destined to kill the evil overlord of the world. Now he's returned successful, needing to kill 5 escapees to our world before they can destroy it.
As I said, the art is unquestionably great. The characters are also good for a first volume. While none other than Mikey is given a lot of spotlight, they have a fair amount of depth for five issues. The mother, however, needs some work, as she gets hit with some of the series plotting issues.
Right, so the first problem I have is that it's weird anyone doubts Mikey's story by issue three. Sure, it should be impossible, but let's just say he sells it. Second, the series does try to spend about 1/3 of it's time on Mikey's adventures in Terrenos, the fantasy world. These are fine, but since Mikey surviving is a foregone conclusion, they aren't as dramatic as they could be.
In all, I like this volume, and I am cautiously optimistic that it can stay good. I'll let you know once I read Vol. 2.
This book features two worlds, our own and a fantasy realm connected to it. I enjoyed the way the two worlds are connected. The boy, Mikey, is believed to be the savior of the fantasy realm when he is taken and trained to fight. The fact that Mikey aged more in comparison to the rest of his family reminds me of fairy tales. Not everything is what it appears to be though. This holds true for both worlds. It is interesting to see Mikey approaching his "destiny" in the past and the present.
The art is great too. The two realms are distinct, but it feels natural when they come together, particularly toward the end of the book. Everything connected to the fantasy realm is drawn with care and enthusiasm. Something about the character faces put me off at times though. It isn't something that affected the way I read the book, just a personal preference I guess.
All in all, I liked this book a lot. The story is good and kept me engaged all the way to the end. I'm looking forward to reading the next volume.
