“Clearly one of the best original creations to come out of Dark Horse in recent memory.”—Comics Bulletin

I love a good monster apocalypse. Kings Road #1 starts off in the suburbs, with a normal family:mom, dad, two teenage kids and a dog. We quickly find out the family isn't as normal was we thought. Mom and dad are important people in hiding. Their children have no idea and the dog talks! Don't want to spoil who they are, but they must go back "home" and help save it.
This is an urban fantasy with some humor thrown in. Evil is trying to takeover and man's best friend might not be... The artwork/dialogue ration is good, but there are a few text heavy pages in the beginnin
g. The first issue is introducing us to the players, but nothing makes Kings Road stand out from the crowd yet; I'll be checking out issue #2 before making a final decision on continuing.
