CBR Review: The Traveler #1

I recently reviewed The Traveler #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The second of the Stan Lee overseen superhero comics from BOOM! hits the shelves this upcoming Wednesday and is more action-packed and mysterious than Soldier Zero. The concept of The Traveler isn’t as easy to grasp immediately, because Mark Waid throws us into the deep end, having the hero fight against his enemies without much of an explanation. It’s a novel approach and one that grabs you right away, driving the issue forward, but also not leaving much of an impression. Without context, the action lacks meaning and a point beyond ‘hero stops bad guys for reasons we don’t know yet.’ Even lacking that context, Waid and Chad Hardin make the debut of The Traveler a dynamic read with enough teases and clues to entice the reader back for another look."
