    This is a western set on a remote planet with aliens. I only recently started reading graphic novels so Im not the best at reviewing them. I thought the concept sounded interesting and the cover artwork caught my attention but it ended up not being as good as I thought it was going to be. I felt like the dialogue didnt do the plot justice and like some key information was missing, especially in the first issue. I also didnt get the plot twist when it was revealed. It took me a couple minutes and This is a western set on a remote planet with aliens. I only recently started reading graphic novels so Im not the best at reviewing them.

I felt like the dialogue didnt do the plot justice and like some key information was missing, especially in the first issue. I also didnt get the plot twist when it was revealed. It took me a couple minutes and another scene to finally clue in on what was said in the previous scene.The artwork didnt add much to the story besides some cool aliens characters. Seriously the main Alien character Lyz is amazing compared to the other artwork it feels like they were drawn by different artists. Most of the art looked a little generic. It wasnt bad and Im sure many people will find the art enjoyable but its just not my thing. I love when colors pop like the last scene with Lyz in the first issue. The art does get a bit better in the third issue but it wasnt all that memorable. The flow of the scenes sometimes felt disjointed. The first issue was a disapointment so I wouldnt recommend reading this by issue. I dont feel like anything really important happened in the first issue. We get some world building and brief character introductions but nothing that makes it stand out. I felt like the first issue didnt have much of a plot. Some of the art scenes could have been removed or replaced by something that added more to the story. I think the story has a lot of potentiel but the dialogue was confusing. I even noticed some words missing like bounty hunter 'in' the galaxy. I thought the characters were alright but I didnt feel like the towns people had a believable reason to get upset. We are suppose to accept that they got angry simply because we are told its a rough town. We also dont get much information on the bounty hunters in the first issue. Thankfully the plot picks up in the second issue and the third issue wraps things up nicely. You definitely need the entire volume to get a feel for the plot and characters. Even though I rated the first issue 2 Stars it did get better and the other issues made me bump it up to 3 Stars.*Received this graphic novel from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

    The space Western is essentially a US counterpart to Europe-derived steampunk, isn't it? Not that they don't have a considerable area of overlap. And while great work was done in both before they became too codified (still miss ya, Firefly), they're both feeling similarly worn out now. Seeley on script duties ensures the characterisation is solid and the dialogue smart, but even he can't breathe life into a plot going through the treasure map/native curse/bounty hunter/sheriff motions.

And the art, while it manages some entertaining and memorable alien life, too often comes across more horribly amateurish than consciously stylised when applied to basics of human physiology and movement.(Netgalley ARC, which eventually became available in a working version after I'd long since given it up as corrupted)

    An uninspired sequel to a direct to video movie Peter David wrote in the mid 90's. Boring with poor art.Received an advance copy from Full Moon and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    'Oblivion' by Tim Seeley with art by Romina Moranelli is billed as a sequel to Full Moon's 1994 SF/Western movie. The original film (and it's 1996 sequel) were direct to video movies and were written by Peter David.The story takes place on a Western planet full of strange aliens and a human telepathic sheriff. A young green girl comes to town looking for the man who shot her father. She has a strange series of wounds on her back that seem to be threatening her life.

A young green girl comes to town looking for the man who shot her father. She has a strange series of wounds on her back that seem to be threatening her life. The only ones who might be able to help are the indigenous people who live outside of town. A group of people is gathered, including a cybernetic woman and a spiritual guide who looks like a Native American. Opposing them are an odd looking group of people with red eyes and singular horns. What is the meaning of the wounds on this woman's back?I'm a sucker for SF/Western, and I remember seeing both original films. They were definitely B-movie quality (like much of Full Moon's output) and the comic brings that quality to this graphic novel. You will either like that, or find it to be weird and cheesy. I thought it was a fun read, but felt like after 10 or 12 years there should have been a bit more backstory to get new readers up to speed.I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Action Lab, Diamond Book Distributors, and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.

    The movie, Oblivion, is one of my cheesetastic guilty pleasures. So, I was stoked to see this up for grabs on NetGalley.The storyline is a neat continuation in the Oblivion world, with Red Eye's daughter coming to claim her fortune. While the cover art is pretty solid, the interior art left a lot to be desired, especially when it came to faces of the female characters, but well, mostly people focus on the T&A and don't care about the face...*Digital review copy provided by NetGalley and the The movie, Oblivion, is one of my cheesetastic guilty pleasures.

    Sorry to say that, but I didn't like so much either the story or the illustrations.Not my kind of tea.Mi dispiace dirlo, ma non mi é piaciuta né la storia né i disegni. Semplicemente non é il mio genere.THANKS TO EDELWEISS FOR THE PREVIEW!

    An okay read. Nothing special or really that stands out in a positive way. The art was fine, other than when they positioned some of the Women in, ah, shall I say risqué ways. Which made me shake my head. I received an advanced copy of this from NetGalley.com and the publisher
