    I haven't followed any of the previous Riftworld projects, but it's not a hard concept to pick up. This comic projected a lot of its goals (here's the dramatic opening, here's the grandmother telling a story to an eager listener, here's the rapscallion in the story) and while this worked for telling the story, it didn't do more to win me over. Perhaps it was the choppy pacing and the inconsistent dialogue (some characters spoke straight and others were near indecipherable in their accents) but this felt like it missed the point where other creative teams would have transitioned smoothly.And the rapscallion protagonist got away with way too much. I found that particularly annoying. If you're dealing with pirates and you're being a little s*** why haven't you been stabbed yet? The lack of consequences (until the plot needs them) got tiring.I don't know if I'll be back for later issues. You might have to be a fan already in the Riftworld franchise to be excited about this.(I'm experimenting with a personal checklist in order to understand what I look for in the genre. This got 18.75/50)

    I have no previous engagement with this property, but got this issue for free during a promotion, and all I really knew was that it was a fantasy story. I enjoyed it for the most part, and much of this issue takes place in something resembling our world during the Renaissance, while other parts are in a kind of medieval fantasy realm with a friction between monotheists and polytheists. I found myself intrigued by the world building here, and my only real issues came from some dialogue that didn't fit the proposed setting at all. I can set that aside to some extent, though, and might be interested in reading more.
