Ultraman 1, This Is the Beginning of A New Age By Shimizu, Eiichi Graphic Novel - 2015

Remember that cheezy Japanese sci-fi with massive monsters that would destroy the city and a massive Power Ranger-like hero who would wrestle them and defend the city?

That was Ultraman.

This is the 2012 manga reboot. The monsters and heroes are smaller, but the actions is still plenty destructive.

It only took an afternoon to clear this one. It was fun though. It's nice to have an easy read once in a while.

There's aliens, exo-suit armour, blasters, a touch of science, a dash of father-son drama, lots of smart action panels and a heavy dose of predictability.

I'll look for volume 2, but it's not on my priority list.
