Section Zero #1 is published by Image Comics, written by Karl Kesel, illustrated by Karl Kesel and Tom Grummett, colored by Comicraft’s Richard Starkings, and lettered by Walter Simonson and Jeremy Colwell. The comic follows the secret team of Sam, Tina, and Tesla as they investigate any alien-related activity all over the world. While on a mission in Saitok, they meet Thom, who’s come a long way from home trying to make sense of something strange happening in this life.
However, there was one particular instance that threw me off for a bit. It mainly has to do with the direction that the comic seems to be going in. Without going into spoilers, it seemed a bit predictable. It falls under the trope of needing to set up a villain but without any real surprise. It may have seemed a bit too early for the reveal. I’m not saying it should’ve been dragged on, but even if this is the first issue of a six-part series, it still feels a bit soon. It would’ve had such a great payoff had Kesel held on.
Overall, I quite enjoyed reading this comic. Like I said, it does seem a bit predictable in terms of who the villain could probably be, but the way the comic ended automatically leaves me wanting to find out what comes next. We’ll get to see the agents dealing with a new mission and see how they function as a team. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for the next issue.
Section Zero is available now wherever comic books are sold.
