    One thought on “Dark Matter Volume 1: Rebirth”

    1. I was pretty surprised to see how great was this graphic novel. SyFy did a great work adapting it to a tv show.

    2. Dark Matter Volume 1: Rebirth is an interesting sci fi story using the American West as an influence for a coming showdown. Parallels to Firefly and the 7 Samurai will be obvious but there are enough personalities and plot twists happening even in this first volume to keep a reader riveted enough to find out what is going to happen next.The plot is far from simple: A crew wakes up suddenly from cryosleep to find their memories missing. They aren't sure who they are nor who their other crewmates [...]

    3. Вот почему я всегда сначала берусь за первоисточник, а потом уже смотрю адаптацию. Серьезно – глянула пару серий нового (на тот момент) космического мыла Dark Matter от Syfy, и внезапно из комментов прознала про комикс, на основе которого и замутили этот сериал. Естественно, я тут ж [...]

    4. Reason for Reading: I was in the mood for a space travel story and the amnesiac angle sounded intriguing.This story was exciting! I dislike drawing comparisons like this but all throughout I kept thinking how much like "Firefly" the feel of this crew and the plot was. Afterwards I found out the writers were actually involved with writing for all the various "Stargate" shows but even knowing that I still got a very strong Firefly vibe and those who like FF will enjoy this tale. A motley crew with [...]

    5. Dark Matter Volume 1: Rebirth RATING: 3.5 stars.I don't read a lot of "western" (ah) graphic novels (I'm more of a manga girl) but the synopsis for "Dark Matter" interested me. People who wake up in space with amnesia? Yes, please.Six people wake up inside a ship with no memories of who they are. This ship is headed for a planet they've never heard of. It is soon apparent that they're not ordinary travelers and that their memories were wiped out by someone. But by whom? And why? As they begin a [...]

    6. I've been wanting to read this for a while, so I'm glad I finally found a copy around town. I've been a fan of Mallozzi and Mullie on Stargate, and have been following Mallozzi's blog for years, so this was a treat. In recent years I seem to have picked up a bad habit of racing through comics and not taking time to sit and savor the atmosphere and pacing, so it seemed like this book just flew by. Good story and one I hope gets continued as it ends on an intriguing note, although far from a cliff [...]

    7. I saw they were making a show on Syfy about this, so I wanted to check it out. I really liked this book! I love the premise of a group of people waking up with amnesia, but it felt like they could have let that play out longer than they did. Although I definitely enjoyed the couple of major plot twist revelations that play out in this story, especially the cliff hanger ending. I haven't been able to find if there are more in this series, but hopefully the show will be a success and keep the stor [...]

    8. 5 RAZA STARSMother of all Sci-fi Gods and Goddesses! I loved it. The tv show is just as cool and amazeballs! I've been in a sci-fi kick for the last couple of months (blame it on Humans, Orphan Black, Dark Matter, Killjoys and Sense8 lol) and I've wanted to read more graphic novels lately, so I combined the two! lol

    9. çizgi roman olarak yazmaya başladığı senaryoyu daha sonra Syfy channel a kabul ettirip dizi haline getirmeyi başaran Joseph Mallozzinin bu kitabını tv dizisi - çizgi roman anlatım karsılaştırması gibi okursanız ilgi çekici bulabilirsiniz.

    10. I picked this up because I love the Syfy show. This served as the basis for the show, and the pilot episode follows it pretty closely. On the one hand, that's cool. On the other, the comic actually suffers in comparison to the show, which is in its third season and has had time to build the characters and the world. This is an enjoyable story, but ultimately, it doesn't have the length to do much with the characters or expand upon the mystery of who everyone is and how their memories got wiped. [...]

    11. I've been watching the series, and had several questions about plot and characters. This clarified several things for me. A diverse crew awakes on a starship with memories erased. The group includes: an android, a massive man, a testy guy with muscles, an Asian man with sword skills , a female preteen/teen, and a very take charge woman. The preteen flashes on bits of memories from other members of the crew. They end up near a planet that desperately needs help against the evil Federation--- but [...]

    12. An enjoyable return to the Raza after binging on the final season of the television series inspired by this graphic novel. The art by Garry Brown translated well to the tube. I wish we could see the story of the Raza's crew resolved in some way.

    13. I like the television show that spun off from this, and the two are pretty similar, but it is annoying that this ends on a cliff-hanger that is never resolved in the world of comics! Grr!

    14. I don't usually read graphic novels or novels for which I have watched a screen treatment. So, I approached this one with a bit of caution. It was so much fun! There were changes between the novel and TV show but they were at the edges and not to the nature of the characters or to the plot. Sad that the TV series was canceled and there is not a volume II.

    15. El género espacial, que no el cósmico, no está muy bollante últimamente, así que he tirado de una serie de hace un par de años, que tiene el aliciente de la Space Opera, y cierto tono Space Western, lo cual suena de puta madre, hablando mal y pronto.Tenemos una tripulación en sueño criogénico que es despertada de golpe y antes de tiempo por una alerta de la nave y problema serio con el soporte vital. El problema es que ninguno puede recordar su nombre, quienes eran, ni que coño hacen e [...]

    16. Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie are writers for the Stargate SG-1 and Stargate: Atlantis series. SG-1 is my favorite sci-fi show to date. This graphic novel does not disappoint. When the six-person crew of a spaceship awaken from stasis, they have no idea who they are or how they got there. They find cargo full of weapons and a destination retrieved from the ships damaged database. Suddenly they are in the middle of a fight that is not their ownor is it? Plot twists and revelations will keep the [...]

    17. Note: I watched the first season of the TV show prior to reading. Issue one feels like a summary, people wake up on a ship with no memories but find out they do remember how to do some things. Android is discovered, planet is explored. That went entirely too fast. The characters don't get a chance to grow on us, and except for a comment here or there we don't get much of a feeling for who they are or what their histories may be, and that's one of the main driving aspects of the show. So when we [...]

    18. I decided to give this a try because 1) I'm pretty much a sucker for anyone trying to do science fiction in comics nowadays and 2) the writers had worked on the Stargate television series so I figured they should have an idea of how to tell a story (from the few episodes I had scene).The entire creative team does a good job of pacing, and not dragging out key story points. Six people wake up on a sstarship with no memory of who they are. Instead of dragging this story point out for several volum [...]

    19. Honestly, I wasnlt expecting to like this one all that much but I found it surprisingly enjoyable. The story - a spaceship crew wakes up on a ship with absolutely no memory, not even of their own names. They don't know where they came from, where they're going or why the ship appears to be rapidly failing. Once the initial chaos settles down we get a story with a lot of elements - outer space, a killer robot, a little wild west gunfight action, violence, swords, a weird psychic kid, hired mercen [...]

    20. When the show Dark Matter officially started, I finally got around to reading this. The graphic novel basically covers the first two episodes of the first season. The art isn't to my taste, but if you're curious about the TV show, this is a good introduction. The show has become one of my favorites and I highly recommend it if you like a twisty science fiction tale with great characters and fabulous actors.

    21. Hodně povedené sci-fi dobrodružství s opotřebovanými vesmírnými loděmi, zajímavými (anti)hrdiny a překvapivými zvraty. Příběh svojí atmosférou evokuje Firefly (klidně by se mohl odehrávat v jejím univerzu). Letos dostala Dark Matter podobu televizního seriálu, osobně bych ale uvítal i další pokračování původní komiksové podoby - čtyři čísla jsou opravdu jen ochutnávka a kresba k tomuhle univerzu perfektně sedla.

    22. Picked up this graphic novel in anticipation for the series that will be on Space/SyFy. I'm curious about what's going to happen next, especially with that cliffhanger ending. I did find myself going to the back of the novel trying to remember who was whom. That was more of me not being used of reading graphic novels and just understanding the illustration style. Can't wait to see how this story continues to play out.

    23. One of the good things about being sick is being able to catch up on some reading. My brother talked me into watch the show Dark Matter and it got addicting. While u wait for season two I decided to read the source material. It's just as good the show!

    24. The first two issues are engrossing. The other two are rather run-of-the-mill and much too similar to Firefly.The art is atrocious. I mistook a man for a woman and a girl for a boy for several pages. In the final fight, it was hard to tell which craft was shooting and which was getting shot.
