Review: Giga #1

Writer: Alex Paknadel
Artist: John Lê
Colorist: Rosh
Letterer: Aditya Bidikar
Designer: Tim Daniel 
Release Date: 10/28/2020

Nobody knows why the skyscraper-sized mechs known as ‘Giga’ fought their bitter, centuries’ long war. All they know is that when the fighting finally stopped, the dormant Giga became humanity’s new habitat and new gods in one. When disgraced engineer Evan Calhoun finds an apparently murdered Giga, his society and the fascistic tech-centered religious order that controls it are rapidly thrown into chaos.
From writer Alex Paknadel (Friendo, Turncoat, Incursion) and rising star John Le comes another Vault & White Noise partnership about what happens after the mechs stop fighting.

There was a TON of hype for Giga #1, with loads of copies sold before release, and even selling out beforehand, I believe.

Giga has a solid start, with a powerful emotional connection in the first issue, and a highly interesting premise. The giga are huge and the feeling translates well to readers, leaving us awestruck looking at them on the page.

The art really is something spectacular to look at, and the giga designs are super cool. Everything is beautifully colored, and the lettering is fantastic.

I don’t want to say much plot wise to avoid spoilers for anyone hyped for it.

Grab Giga #1 if you can – out today!
