Patrick Kindlon and Marco Ferrari launch their new comic with Frontiersman #1 from Image Comics. What would it take to pull someone back into the life that they have moved on from? Especially if they had been a superhero. Kindlon and Ferrari open the world of Frontiersman as they begin to show us that very thing.
Frontiersman #1 was a very good introduction to this world. It hit on how the Frontiersman feels about the new generation reaching out and asking him to take part in something he used to believe in. I really enjoyed seeing how the art bounced back and forth between the present and the past as the Frontiersman reflected on his past career. I would really like to see more of the Frontiersman’s past, but one thing that I did enjoy was that the Frontiersman isn’t trying to live in the past.
Marco Ferrari’s art in Frontiersman #1 is definitely something to behold. The way that the conversations influenced the imagery was cool. I really enjoyed seeing the flashbacks to the Frontiersman’s earlier career as well. Moreover, Ferrari has a very clean art style and it makes it very easy to follow movement through the scenes.
I can’t wait to see where the next issue takes us. Kindlon and Ferrari’s Frontiersman #1 is a great example of what a first issue should be. I really like that we’re coming in after the prime of the main character. This seems like it will give a great deal of room (storywise) to see why and how the Frontiersman reached this point in his life. Count me in for Frontiersman #2.
