Likeable main character, and some good ideas but - being a Kirby script- it also has a lot of silly ideas. The worst being the bombs in the robots.

4/10

  -I didn't hate this, although it seemed derivative of The Silver Surfer with a little Hulk thrown in.

  Based on Kirby's other work from this period I was expecting to dislike this issue, but it was decent.

  This was surprisingly good, at least until the monolith showed up. It felt a lot like Astro Boy.

  Still 22 issues of Kirby to read after this. Sigh.

  This is okay. It's just not good enough.

  I'm trying not to allow my bias of Kirby to prevent me from rating this title fairly. I'm trying...

  I'm glad I'm not reading these. It's bad enough Devil Dinosaur is coming.

  And You are {in my opinion} wrong, cause both this & Devil Dinosaur are great. Much much better than other Kirby's works from that part of the order...

  Not to mention it's weird to comment on comic You haven't read...

  I can't comment on the comic itself, since I didn't read it. I'm saying I've had enough Kirby at this point, and am not sad at all that I'm not reading it. This isn't on Unlimited, and I have no access to it, but I'm ok with that in this instance. As for Devil Dinosaur, I do hope it's good, and will grade it fairly.

  Why have a self destruct with a 30 minute timer?

  This could have been a lot worse.. but it really wasn't that bad.

  Hah! I was literally just about to count the number of these left myself.
