    1 thought on “Future Quest, Vol. 1

    1. Maybe I shouldn t have read this as I never saw the Jonny Quest cartoon so have zero knowledge about or nostalgia for the show but the recently relaunched Flintstones comic wasn t bad so I thought Future Quest might be ok too nope it wasn t Here s the biggest problem TOO MANY CHARACTERS A whole mess of characters are thrown at you as soon as you start reading heeeeeeeeere s Jonny Quest and Hadji ok, they re the main characters Race, Dr Quest fine, they re the supporting characters and then it s [...]

    2. It was fun and I really wanted to give this 5 start but I just couldn t Maybe if I read this in single issues I could have, but here it just doesn t deserve it When you are putting out a collection like this DC Comics, please take the reader into consideration You have an opportunity to tell the story in a straight line You have an opportunity to move backup stories to where they make sense The lack of a coherent straight line story here made this difficult to read What I could put together was [...]

    3. WOW If you were ever a fan of the Saturday morning action adventure cartoons of the late 60 s and early 70 s like me then you need to read this comic series All the greats are joined up in a epic adventure The writers do a very good job with a storyline that joins this vast cast together Very nice art that reminds me of the cartoons add a great touch Pure flashback joy to read Very recommended

    4. I have been looking forward to the new DC Hanna Barbera Universe with high anticipation This is the 2nd book out but my first read There is only one word to describe it AWESOME I grew up watching these cartoons on Saturday mornings and am so happy to see all the HB superheroes in a modern storyline Future Quest is typical superhero fare with a sci fi theme I have always loved Jonny Quest, and this re imagining is faithful yet current I m in love This is a very busy volume with masses of characte [...]

    5. Ok, in all fairness I m a HUGE Jonny Quest fan I m also a fan of both The Herculoids the originalSpace Ghost NOT Coast to Coast So it was almost a given that I d love this series Of course, it could have been terrible It s not It s fantastic This is a feel good, all ages, fun comic something that DC really doesn t do much of any Looking forward to future issues and volumes Keep em coming Love it

    6. The first volume collects the initial issues of the multi part crossover that brings together the dozens of Hanna Barbara animated heroes While Johnny Quest and his family, along with Space Ghost, have had four color adventures before this, DC brings them all together for the first time of which I m aware Jeff Parker does a great job of capturing the characters pretty much as we remember them, although there are a few bits that appear to be new or at least unrevealed in their previous incarnatio [...]

    7. Yes To be a kid again I have so many fond memories growing up and watching these cartoon characters Many of the heroes we follow in this story had great cartoon shows which really opened up my imagination as a child growing up in the 80s Johnny Quest was one of my favorites I really loved that opening with the mechanical spiders Space Ghost was also a guilty pleasure I remember the Galaxy Trio, Mitor, Birdman, and The Herculoids I do not remember the Impossibles though Many of you who grew up in [...]

    8. I grew up watching many of the Hanna Barbera science fiction adventure cartoons, especially Jonny Quest, Space Ghost, and The Herculoids Jeff Parker had done his research on these characters and has made a fascinating universe that they all inhabit The original cartoons were very lean on origin stories, the characters just _were_ Parker has imbued carefully constructed origins for the characters that fit into their established narratives The interactions between the characters are believable, wi [...]

    9. This was the Hanna Barbera book I was most looking forward to Jonny Quest, Space Ghost and the Herculoids were some of my favorite cartoons to catch when they aired in reruns The series starts off strong with this all consuming creature Omnicron attacking the galaxy Space Ghost, the Herculoids and the Galaxy Trio are from Omnicron is trying to escape to our world and Dr Quest and Birdman are on the case We get a lot of the classic characters from Jonny Quest like Dr Zin, Jezebel Jade, and even t [...]

    10. This is a reboot putting together many of the Hanna Barberra characters of yesteryear We get Johnny Quest, Space Ghost, Birdman, The Herculoids, and Their entourages also tag along and Race Bannon is still a bad ss They team up to battle F.E.A.R and there s also a cosmic threat going on, which manages to bring all the characters together in a somewhat plausible way That being said, this still fell a little flat to me I recently read Scooby Apocalypse and loved that one, but this one didn t see [...]

    11. First, the things I like about this book are the art and the first issue The first issue sets up a really interesting story, and combines characters from different series in an interesting way Things start to fall apart from the second issue though The story starts going into flashbacks and exposition It tries to explain who the characters are and how they got into the first issue I would have preferred it if they didn t explain the characters and just let the story proceed That way, readers who [...]

    12. Unlike DC s other Hanna Barbera reinventions the Flintstones, Dastardly Muttley, Scooby I m not sure any of these characters made much of an impact in the UK, or if they did, they weren t part of my childhood I know the name Jonny Quest I m dimly aware of Space Ghost and Birdman, though only via a vague knowledge of their comedy reboots Others here, such as the Herculoids and the Impossibles, I m pretty sure I ve entirely avoided for all my 40 years So it s without much confidence that I conclud [...]

    13. With a Universal threat making its way to Earth heroes from all over the Hanna Barbera universe must come together and face the threat before all life ends as we know it Just picking up this volume and looking at the cover floods me with memories of watching some of these cartoons when I was younger yes I know it dates me but I am still young at heart With a decidedly modern take on a number of hero oriented cartoons such as Jonny Quest, Space Ghost, Frankenstein JR, Birdman, The Herculoids, The [...]

    14. This volume was disjointed and contained a lot of set up, so I m hoping the next will be cohesive now that the characters are introduced It s fun revisiting characters from my childhood and meeting new ones, so I m looking forward to the second volume.

    15. It s as good as comic books get I totally loved this book If you re a fan of Darwyn Cooke or Jeff Parker, this is a must read The art is top notch A perfect comic book.

    16. It was fun reading this in trade format It s nice to not have to wait a month for each segment of the story this time around Definitely one of the best comics in recent years.

    17. Future Quest is an 80s 90s kid s dream come true A bunch of our favourite Hanna Barbera cartoon superheroes are pulled into the same fight and have to work together to save the world When I first heard about this book, I was intrigued and couldn t wait to get my hands on the goods.Volume 1 was available on Netgalley, and I surprisingly received a copy of it It starts off with a bang and the first couple of issues rekindle the magic of our youth The focus on Johnny Quest and the gang made it part [...]

    18. I enjoyed the first half of this a lot, the second half lost me a bit I loved the nastalgia of seeing the older characters together, and that artwork was beautiful That first few issues is what earned this the 4 star rating Also that Darwyn Cooke coverI received an advanced copy of this from NetGalley

    19. Far better than it has any right to be thanks to the late, great Darwyn Cooke being involved in this project s early stages, but beware that all your fave characters may not make it out alive.

    20. I really like the idea of trying to make a shared universe out of these 1960s cartoon characters, and this series does a good job My only problem is that they re often weak about introducing characters to new readers I know who these people are, but I m old and in many cases haven t seen the original cartoons in decades I think it might have been better to introduce the characters slowly, and spent a little time with each before expanding the cast At the very least, stick a who s who type entr [...]

    21. Not gonna lie, nostalgia has played a huge part in my enjoyment of this series I adored Jonny Quest, Birdman, the Herculoids and Space Ghost as a child and these reimaginings of them are brilliant That s not to distract from the story It s a pretty good plot that ties in the various planets and timelines coherently Some issues are stronger than others, of course, especially the ones with action and suspense but there are the odd ones where nothing really happens and it s a bit slow The art is g [...]

    22. Nostalgia is a tough issue for me I am and irritated when companies trade on nostalgia, supplying it only as a gimmick, not delivering any other substance What s is that to me, nostalgia is simply the act of saying remember this really great original idea someone else had a long time ago Wherein the selling point of that idea was that it was original and connected to its contemporary time To re release that idea with little to no change is not only unjust to that original idea, but clearly a [...]

    23. Let s be honest this is only five stars if you have any memory of these cartoons I wasn t alive for their first run but did watch them as they were rerun later Although the Impossibles and Dino Boy never made it to my viewing area I have VERY fond memories of Birdman, Space Ghost, Jonny Quest and the Galaxy Trio Having said that this series is hitting it out of the park in terms of being true to the original cartoons but still bringing a complex characterization to the heroes that obviously a 6 [...]

    24. I mainly chose to check this series out because of Jonny Quest I m a fan of the series, and hearing that there were going to be new comics with the characters got me quite excited There hasn t been any new content for the series for quite a while, and while this isn t exactly what I wanted for the series, it s something.This first volume was pretty great The story is a bit run of the mill it s one of those various characters come together to stop the end of the world crossovers , but it s still [...]

    25. Disclaimer I have never seen the cartoon this was based upon DC Comics and Hannah Barbera recently teamed up to resurrect classic cartoons in comic book format I have already read Scooby Apocalypse which started rough but grew on me Then I read the new Flintstones which started great but quickly tanked Having never seen Future Quest was it originally called Johnny Quest I wasn t sure what to expect What I ended up with was complete confusion Like other reviews, I could pick out the main characte [...]

    26. Future Quest, Vol 1 by Jeff Parker with art by Evan Shaner, Ron Randall and Craig Rousseau is a really great reimagining of lots of the Hanna Barbera cartoons I watched as a kid This book features the cast of Jonny Quest, Space Ghost, the Herculoids and some other surprises.When a mysterious series of strange portals show up reflecting other events while Johnny, Hadji and Race are out investigating, it seems like a problem that will be a bit over their head Fortunately, other heroes from other t [...]

    27. This is ridiculous, but also fun I only know a few of the original series so there wasn t a huge wave of nostalgia when I read this, but it was just funny to see how what were clearly very different series and characters were being fit into one world and storyline.It s been a week or so since I read it so the details are hazy, but basically there s some cosmic evil trying to rip a hole from its world dimension into the one of the main characters And there s an evil organization called wait for i [...]

    28. Sin duda y tal cual lo menciona el autor al final del volumen, tenemos ante nosotros el New Frontier de Hanna Barbera, la presentaci n de lo cl sico para una nueva generaci n, aunque no me tocaron tal cual en su fecha de estreno los personajes que aqu se presentan, si estuvieron presentes en parte importante de mi infancia, sobre todo porque eran las caricaturas que pasaban en Cartoon Network, en esa poca en que empezaba su transmisi n y las caricaturas o estaban en ingl s o en espa ol y punto, [...]
