REVIEW: Time Trial #1 (The CHRONOS Files) by Rysa Walker (Creator), Heather Nuhfer (Writer), and Agustin Padilla (Illustrator)

****(4) out of 5 stars!

Having not ever read anything from Rysa Walker’s CHRONOS FILES universe, I was a bit lost reading this first issue of the new stand-alone comicbook series, even though it was obviously created with newbies like me in mind.  Basically, the entire episode was minimal back-story, trying to get the reader familiar with the main characters and their world.  But I found it rather lacking in that area; more depth - both about Clio and the other main players, as well as their world - would have been greatly appreciated.  Still, it was an enjoyable enough story, and the time-travel aspect is definitely appealing.   I anticipate that future issues will have much more actual plot, which I look forward to reading.  

The graphics are well done, clear and concise, for the most part; but no so overdone as to distract from the happenings.

I received a few copy of this Issue #1 from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
