Issue #1: The Final Contradiction

At first glance you should never completely believe what you read. What is there is not real…Self Made is a story that has taken it’s tale from many many other stories. I assumed it was your basic dungeons and dragons story. It surly “plays” that way from the start. The story even has some magic thrown in as well to make us see what we want to see. I saw Teronak(the villain here) as a wanna be Mortal Kombat character. The story borrows from West World, Ready Player One and Edge of Tomorrow. The quest begins with Amala Citlali. She’s a warrior for the city she protects or what writer Mathew Groom wants us to believe she is more. The introduction of Prince Brycemere shows us that this story has a potential hero that will change Amala’s fate. The book has an interesting twist that looks like magic but turns into something more. I haven’t decided if it’s a good plot twist or a bad one. Ferigato’s artwork is solid in his change of perspective and use of thick and thin line. The book is like deja vu and I feel like I’ve seen it before or played it before. This first issue gives us enough information to decide if the book will continue to be in our pull list for the future.
