Happy Wednesday to everyone! With the final issue of Fear Agent sadly hitting shelves last week, I thought it would be a good idea to take a look back at where it all began with the first volume of Fear Agent entitled Re-Ignition by Rick Remender and Tony Moore and published (at least in my edition) by Image Publishing.
Overall, I love Fear Agent, though the first trade here is not as strong a story as what comes after. It ends in one hell of a cliffhanger that will make you want to run out buy the next trade though, which is great. The writing by Remender is very good and only gets better as the series progresses and the art by Moore is kind of the opposite. Don't get me wrong, I love Tony Moore, but he is kind of an artistic cock-tease at times. He will produce a couple very strong issues and then have a couple weaker ones and then someone else will take over (for more examples of this see The Walking Dead, Venom, Ghost Rider, Punisher, or DMZ). His first issues are always so strong, it is just frustrating to see work from him that looks and feels rushed, which this does at times. It is a very good read and a series you should stick with till the end to get so many questions answered and have one hell of a time getting to those answers. If you like action, space, Texas, swearing, aliens, monsters, drinking, and rocket ships that look like rockets: this is the book for you.
