40 Seconds Issue 1 Comic Book Review

40 Seconds is a Sci Fi story that will take you to various parts of the universe though a machine. A machine that was built from instructions from a beacon that was sent to them. Hmm, now you have my curiosity!

You start off with the team waking up a hours prior to going through the portal and a few team members are talking about nightmares they had previously. You get a glimpse of some of their personalities as well as what they are trying to accomplish. Then the team arrives for their briefing which now gives you an idea on why they are doing their mission.

The team travels “40 Seconds” into the portal, hence the name 40 Seconds and go to another planet. They establish connection to Earth and start to travel to the next portal. A startling discovery while traveling to the portal has made  my imagination to go wild and then…it happens!  The attack happens!

I’m loving the story arc and how the writer is showcasing the comic book here. You get a glimpse of the team and why they are doing this mission. The story sounds familiar from TV shows from the past, as the mystery from those shows are exercised in the story. You want to know more about their surroundings, what they are seeing and what decisions they make in the comic.

The art throughout the pages give the story an out of this world view. This pun was very well intended! The art in the story is fantastic, which gives the reader a vision of what the characters are seeing and experiencing.

Take the trip to satisfy your sci fi needs and get this comic now!
