As mentioned in a previous review, I found this entire series for cheap. There’s some funny business with the IRL character aspects, I think when the character made the jump from Marvel to IDW he lost the name of the planet he was from, as well as the subtitle of “Space Knight”, which is an honest shame, because it’s an awesome subtitle. The story gets moving in fits and starts and feels much like the origin story from the 80’s, but never really gets moving in a direction that I was super happy with, though I do like the new supporting characters. It was sadly canceled with issue 14, though the storyline was wrapped up in a separate mini series with the micronauts, which was satisfying enough to me that I would suggest reading the two series back to back as if they were one.
