Space Mullet Volume 1: One Gamble at a Time Reviews

    A gritty, down and dirty Sf scenario set in the back end of the galaxy, where bad-ass aliens befriend as well as collide with humans, and where Space Marines are up against a battle of their own. Mobsters mix it up with space faring do-gooders, and in the end is a well told and heartfelt tale. The artwork is starkly inked in black with a limited color palette of blue and white (except for chapter covers), but it suits the story fine. If you like the used and worn feel of the series Firefly, you may like this.

    Pretty fun space adventure story. Plus it turns out this is a printed version of a web comic, so I loved that I was able to go online and continue following the story.

    Even limited in scope to action adventure and the obligatory get-the-team-together volume, this is AMAZING. johnson does amazing line work and has a real affinity for splash page. there is a lot of terrific non-verbal storytelling here, about a very racist space system with a mixed-race bromance at its core. the last couple stories bring a couple more people into the fold and remind you how much world-building is going on. Granted that the ambition of the storytelling is not particularly grandiose, the setting and the execution are tremendous. Best of the year list, to be sure.

    Jonah and Alphius are two space truckers trying to get by. Alphius is a Zozobian, a race that humans are at war with. Jonah is an ex-marine, running away from a mission gone awry. One that nicely underpins the reason why most races are not particularly fond of Humans. Especially Jonah is trying to stay under the radar. Which complicates making a living, being self employed and trying to stay on the right side of the law.When the book begins, Jonah and Alphius accept a mission to wipe out the last remaining victims of the gruesome mission that made Jonah flee the army. Of course they don’t intend to comply, but rather safe these poor people. Something goes wrong however, and the next half of the book is spent on setting things straight. Where the first half of the story is mostly action filled, the second half is about Jonah roaming the streets, trying to get by and looking for someone who can help him. Unfortunately they’re stranded in a shithole, where most people have enough troubles of their own.Although both halves of the story have quite a different feel to them, I liked both. There’s room for social themes and self reflection and there’s the occasional shoot-out or melee fight. And Johnson created two likeable anti-heroes, miserable enough to be interesting, but with enough self-esteem and determination to keep themselves and the story moving forward. Overall Space Mullet proved to be a nice mix.Johnson’s writing, as well as his art reminds me of Paul Pope, Guy Davis (as in The Marquis) and for some reason I also have James Stokoe lingering in the back of my mind. Space Mullet is originally a webcomic. This trade paperback collects the first 4 chapters, the 8th is only a small number of pages away from completion. That suggests a second trade might be released in a not so distant future.Read more reviews on my tumblr blog siggestript.tumblr.com

    a solid 3.5. some nice world building and likable characters marred by an unmemorable plot and seriously what the hell was that romance shoehorned in at the end? unnecessary.

    The illustrations are beautiful in this webcomic-turned-print-copy collection. The story is compelling, the action intense and frequent and the characters real and relatable. This has been one of my favorite webcomics for a long time, and I am so glad to finally see it in print, and in such a high quality book too. Though there is a lot of violence, I would highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in science fiction, comics, or storytelling in general if they can handle gore.

    3.5 stars. This was a pretty fun start to what seems to be a good space adventure. Lots of character and world set-up... Hoping the follow-ups dig more into the story.
