Review: Leap #0

Up to now, Uproar Comics’ stock in trade has been gory zombie-horror books, and the first issue of this “space-faring neo-science fiction epic” series marks their first foray into “proper” sci-fi in the space ships-and-E.T.s vein. It’s also part of a larger transmedia project that will include an animated version of this story, mini-games, and […]
