In the tradition of Dragonball.
No One Left To Fight #1
Written by Aubrey Sitterson
Illustrated by Fico Ossio
Lettered by Taylor Esposito
Genre: Fantasy, Fight manga
Published by Dark Horse
Synopsis: They’ve saved the planet countless times, but what happens after the final battle has been won? Creators Aubrey Sitterson & Fico Ossio take inspiration from the legendary Dragon Ball to tell a story of regret, resentment, and growing older, one that asks, ”What does a fighter do when there’s no one left to fight?”
It is the reunion of combat pals Vale and Timor. Vale appears to suffer PTSD and Timor just wants to fuss. 20 pages later they get around to fighting, in front of the children. It’s kind of like All in the Family with death rays at dinner time.
The story doesn’t really take us anywhere we haven’t been before. (Yes, I have raised generations of Dragonball fans!) As far as issue #1 goes, I wasn’t impressed except for Ossio’s color overload! Wow. That acid/Scooby-Doo thing works really, really well.
Brass tax, the setup could be way stronger and that is the biggest failing. But who is buying fight manga for story, right? Maybe issue #2 will be a must-have.
I’ll leave this as a buy with 3 stars of 5.
Look for it in your local comic shop or pre-order it online.
