    Note: As a huge Stargate fan, I found this volume a bit hard to rate. On one hand, the plot is what's most important, and the story here is very shallow. Not bad, just lacking any actual substance. On the other hand, judging this compared to other Stargate comics, I would put this high on the list as one of the most realistic portrayals of the show and its overall accurate atmosphere and aesthetic. The actual review: I appreciated the attention to detail and characters. The atmosphere really felt Note: As a huge Stargate fan, I found this volume a bit hard to rate.

The actual review: I appreciated the attention to detail and characters. The atmosphere really felt like a part of the Stargate series, which is more than can be said for quite a few of the Stargate comics series. I enjoyed the art of the stargate itself and the jaffa serpent guards, though people were rather hit and miss at times. Unfortunately, the story was lacking and rather simplistic. The story was unnecessarily drawn out for how short and uneventful it actually was. It would have been cool to see more expansion of the Stargate mythos, but unfortunately, we don't get that. The best part was just the introduction. The rest of the story is just prolonging the simplistic conclusion and a whole third of the story is just a retelling of the Stargate movie and SG-1 pilot, and while it was nice to see the scenes depicted in the style, it was still completely unnecessary and just used up any time the story could have had to actually do something or build-up its own story arc.

    I remember being really excited when I first heard about this title. Stargate SG1 was, at the time, my favourite sci-fi show on TV and being a fan of The X-Files comic and the original Buffy comics (published by TOPPS and Dark Horse, respectively) I figured this would be one more 'expanded universe' that I would get to play in. Once the issues came out, though, I never bothered tpo pick them up. I don't know if it was finances, or an overall dislike of the art style (it could have been both, rea I remember being really excited when I first heard about this title. Stargate SG1 was, at the time, my favourite sci-fi show on TV and being a fan of The X-Files comic and the original Buffy comics (published by TOPPS and Dark Horse, respectively) I figured this would be one more 'expanded universe' that I would get to play in. Once the issues came out, though, I never bothered tpo pick them up. I don't know if it was finances, or an overall dislike of the art style (it could have been both, really) but I left them on the rack and didn't pick up my first Stargate issues until "Fall of Rome", where the addition of Roman gods to the mix was too tempting to resist. Anyway, enough history. The series itself ran three issues and was written by James Anthony Kuhoric and illustrated by Renato Guedes with colours by Nimbus Studios. Story-wise, the plot is pretty simple. Jack O'Neill jumps through the gate chasing one of the series baddies who used to be an ally and friend to him (also something of a surrogate son). Everyone wants to go through and recover him but the Goa'uld have left behind a device that jeopardizes Stargate Command. There is also the added threat of the Goa'uld getting information about the SGC through torturing O'Neill with a device that will drag the desired info out of his mind. Now, I'm not a huge fan of this plot, which feels hackneyed and contrived, but I was still willing to go along for the ride if it was paced well and the characters were true to their TV counterparts. This was something Kuhoric did not do. I'm not sure how much of the bad pacing should be credited to Guedes, but the dialogue was stiff and often felt like it was cut and pasted from moments in the show. The jokes that O'Neill spouts are trite and there was just nothing organic about the way any of these people behaved. I wouldn't often dare to say this (in the likelihood that someone actually called me on it) but I could have dialogued this better than Kuhoric. Given some time (and deep immersion in the subject matter) I may even have been able to come up with a better storyline, too, but for arguments sake, I'm going to stick with just the dialogue. The artwork by Guedes was something else, too. The strange painterly look is likely the fault of Nimbus (based on the look of Guedes's pencils as well as his straight pencil & ink work seen in the convention specials that Avatar produced) but his characters are still extremely stiff and his overall storytelling ability is limited in these three issues. I ran into several jump cuts that kill the flow of things and panels that make me shudder with their lack of imagination all serve to kill this story before it ever really gets off the ground. I think I probably made it three or four pages in before I knew this was going to be a bad trip, so I'll give him credit for the opening action sequence. Once they get into the SGC, though, wooo... On a side note, Kuhoric did his best to weave the story of the feature film into the narrative (for which I give him props) but it ended up coming off kind of stilted and felt more like he was trying to kill pages off with what has come before rather than coming up with some original story to fill those in. I gotta say, I did not like this mini-series, despite (or possibly because of) having an appreciation for the source material and wanting this to be good. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone except maybe the most die-hard fan who wouldn't be totally turned off by it in the end. If I was wanting to make a good impression on a new reader, or someone looking for a proper Stargate fix, I think I would probably throw them one of the later minis, just to be safe.

    Flat stories and typos really killed this for me. The normally dynamic characters that I know and love were OOC and boring. Artwork wasn't great, either. Final insult was the photos at the end. Jack, Daniel, and Teal'c, but no Sam? What, you just forgot the female member of the team? Not cool. Flat stories and typos really killed this for me.

    Characters are true to the TV series, but the story just felt short.
