Stargate: Daniel Jackson #1Stargate: Daniel Jackson #1
Written by Doug Murray
Art by John Watson
Cover by Chasen Grieshop
Dynamite Entertainment
Price: $3.99
Release date: July 14, 2010

Well everyone’s favorite space traveling archaeologist is back in Stargate: Daniel Jackson. This is the first issue in a 3-issue miniseries in which good ol’ Dr. Jackson takes a front seat in all the action.

The story starts with Jackson, Mitchell, and Vala getting back from a mission in which they took fire. When they are back on Earth, Dr. Jackson runs into an Iraq war vet who presents him with a stone from the Iraqi antiquities museum. The stone has Ancient writing on it, but it appears to be Babylonian or Sumerian. It becomes Dr. Jackson’s theory that the Ancients were involved in the cradle of civilization. Dr. Jackson sets off to Iraq to find the person who originally had the stones with the Ancient writing on them. It turns out that the stones combine to be a gate address to a planet in which a rumored “island of treasure” resides.

I love this book! I think that the writing from Doug Murray rivals that of any episode from the show SG-1. This is a great and fun story and it is nice to see this character that we all know and love finally take center stage in his own series.

The artwork is very well drawn and it is very clean and even colorful at times. I do have one problem with the artwork, though; the characters look kind of like their TV counterparts but at the same time they look a bit different. Artist John Watson delivers with the background and the mood and feel of this story.

The stargate isn’t in this book as much as I would like it to be, but the story makes up for that. I really feel this book is worth the $3.99 and is a must for any Stargate fan or any science fiction fan for that matter.

I give Stargate: Daniel Jackson #1 a 5 out of 5.
