Another comic from Columbus, Ohio's Hunter Productions, this time in the science fiction arena. It's essentially light science fiction (in terms of its science) with a nod to grim 'n' gritty politics and personal motivations, along the lines of Border Worlds
and Alien Fire
. Those two series were done with a hell of a lot more skill and energy than this one, however.
The one thing I'll take away from this comic is the overwhelming amount of text it holds. While I think you can do comics with a hell of a lot more text than is normally allowed -- I agree with Jon Lewis and (to a certain extent) Chris Ware on this -- several pages of Millennium
#3 are illustrated story. The writer seems very intensely interested in the story, but the quality of the prose didn't allow me easy entry to the material, and once there I didn't find anything new or particularly noteworthy. The art looks like basic young person art, crude figure drawing and equipment that looks like it was ruled out on the page.
(Millennium #3 cost $2.50; Hunter Productions is P.O. Box 14860, Columbus, OH, 43214.)
This review was written in the late 1990s as part of a then-ongoing freelance gig; I apologize if it reads oddly or seems incomplete.
