Comic book artists Dave Garcia and writer Monica Sharpe return to their roots with ‘The Chronicles of Panda Khan: Chapter 1‘. With Mickey Clausen handling the colorist duties, Abacus Press brings a comic character gem back to the forefront.
According to the synopsis, “The story opens with geneticists manning a research station on the distant planet Da Tu in charge of repopulating Earth Colonies with endangered and extinct animals, long absent on the planet Earth. But this one outpost is led by scientists who have taken their assignment a few steps further. P’an Ku, the project director, is teaching his panda bears sign language. And his rival, Shibo, has diabolical plans for all the animals being cloned and restored. The AI computer has developed a personality as a minor deity and is teaching the pandas mythology while building his own underground hive worker army.”
In full disclosure, I supported the crowdfunding campaign for this comic book and I honestly loved it. The retro-looking artwork and coloring are spot on. I was not familiar with the series when it first appeared in the eighties, but I am glad I got up. The main plot and story are so much fun. I loved every page and I cannot wait to see what is next for this series
