Part bounty hunter saga with nods to Alien and Firefly, The Disciples starts off with a slow build that turns into a big bang in the first issue of what may shape up to be a very exciting series.

The Disciples #1 starts with three companions heading to Ganymede, one of Jupiter’s moons. It and the other moons in the solar system have recently been colonized in a Gold Rush-style land rush. Ganymede was settled by a religious cult (that started in Florida, obviously). One of the members of this cult is the daughter of a senator, and our three heroes have been sent to bring her back. Of course, the start of their journey doesn’t go as planned, and right from the beginning they encounter one creepy-ass alien who does not seem to come in peace.

The blend of sharp, punchy dialogue from Steve Niles, and gorgeous artwork from Christopher Mitten and Jay Fotos, makes The Disciples #1 a fun read. The story keeps the momentum going from start to finish, leading to a great cliffhanger. The creative team behind this book knows what works with sci-fi, and they’re using it to their full advantage.

The Disciples is definitely a comic book to pick up.
