RATO Illustrated Plug Preview
by Scotty G. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/21/2013 11:32:38

RATO (Plug) Staff: Brian S Logan, Stefano Cardoselli (P/I), M R Dodson/Azurek Studios (Color), Bram Meehan (Letters)

Overview: So the 80's called, they want their scifi back.

Review: I have to admit, I love the 80s (see my black salt review for more on that). Let's start this review by saying that the art style is downright tantalizing. Kind of reminds me of Jamie Hewlett (Tank Girl), Heavy Metal, Peter Chung (Æon Flux, Phantom 2040), and the like.

It seems like for every ounce of love put into the artwork, an equal amount was taken out of the lettering.

The comic preview is short (only 5 pages including the cover). It tells a story mostly though a visual medium, which is rare and interesting. I wish more people could accomplish telling a story purely though art. I would have bought and reviewed the entire comic (rather than a preview) except there isn't any more and it was added in July of 2012. Sadly this means that that's all we get to see of this one. Oh well, c'est la vie.

Metrics Art: 9/10 (80s called. They want to give you a metal) Lettering: 4/10 (Poor but not distracting) Plot: 8/10 (For a visual story with little text- excellent.) Novelty: 8/10 (Novel) Overall: 8.5/10

Starts off unclear, heads into some not overly engaging robot stuff, but finishes strong with a clever surprise. Now where's the rest of the anthology?
