    One thought on “Horizon, Vol. 1: Reprisal”

    1. I had a hard time deciding on what should I rate this first volume of the Horizon comic series. I like the story because it sort of reminds me of the The Matrix, but there are certain parts that confused me. Therefore, I rated this 3 stars instead of 4 because I was left with several unanswered questions.Thanks to Image Comics for the providing a copy of this graphic novel.

    2. Done with books 1 and 2, can't wait for book 3. Horizon uses a sci-fi plot I haven't seen before: a team of undercover agents from another planet is dispatched to prevent Earth from invading their home to escape environmental destruction. The first volume is full of timeline jumps to get you caught up on current events, so I had to read it twice to properly assemble everything in my brain, but I'm glad I did. What I especially appreciated is that the team's actions against humans are only half t [...]

    3. Bullet Review:Meeeeeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhh. I've certainly read worse, but damn, if this wasn't a confusing setup volume. Also, not sure how the story can proceed from here. I really wish the characters had been better developed - took me until nearly the end to realize that "Sherrie" was "Agent Davix"!Between 2 and 3 stars. Cannot make my mind up about which one it should be.

    4. Interesting premise. Obviously a lot more going on than is revealed in these first issues. I'm a little torn about who I am supposed to be rooting for so far (probably not a bad thing). I'll check out the next volume. :)

    5. I quite liked the first issue: an sci-fi espionage tale of an alien coming to Earth to prevent an invason of her home planet. However, as the series continued, sociology and cultural satire and politics took a back seat to endless gunfights and explosions. After a promising opening sequence I found the book a chore to get through.

    6. Having read the first six issues of Horizon (I've been collecting the individual issues), I have to say I'm still uncertain how I feel about the series as a whole. What begins as an exciting and cool intro issue, turns muddled and confusing as new characters join the fray and the story keeps the reader out of the loop. Then, suddenly, something clicks and it makes sense, kind of.This is a story where the humans of Earth are the bad guys, and aliens like Zhia Malen are invading the Earth in order [...]

    7. I found Horizon, Volume 1 to have a very cinematic quality. It reminded me, in a nostalgic way, of Masters of the Universe and other stories from the 1980s. I am not sure if this was the intent of the author, but it was one of my takeaways.The visual appeal of this book was worth the price of admission alone, and I found the story to be very enjoyable. Of course, being volume one, there is a continuation aspect that begs more. But the begging more is a positive feeling to come away with at the e [...]

    8. Sci-fi comic collection about an alien come to Earth to prevent an invasion.This collection involves an alien crew come to Earth to recover one of their race and to prevent Earthlings leaving the planet. A firefight takes up a lot of the central part of the story.The illustrations in the digital edition are not always clear so it is quite difficult to differentiate between some of the characters. The plot is OK but also hard to follow at times. Not brilliant but reasonably good. I'm not enthused [...]

    9. Man. two stars, and actually I'm feeling kind of generous. We just jumped in and let out snippets of information as we were going along and it just did not work out for me. I learned more in the three sentence 'about' the book than I did in the actual pages. Sounds like it should be interesting so maybe it will be eventually?

    10. By the end of this volume, the story seems a little bit out of control, and I'm not sure I will continue to read it. The premise and the start of the volume were so intriguing, though, that I have to think about it. The artwork is nice, and the characters are intriguing, but there is no sense that the writer really knows where the story is going.On the other hand, the story has so much potential that I am hoping that it gets back to the quality of the opening parts.It's an alien invasion story o [...]

    11. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/What Horizon Volume 1 wanted to be was a high stakes, high octane sci fi actioner. But something was lost in the application - a concept that was never fleshed out enough to be anything more than nebulous and disenfranchising. The plot meanders, the story somewhat inscrutable, and the protagonists cyphers that baffle rather than entice. By the middle of this first volume, collecting issues 1-6, I was reading just to finish and not be [...]
