When DC announced a few months back that is releasing a new line of Hanna-Barbera comics, re-envisioned for the 21st Century, I was rather skeptical of what they would be like. Future Quest #1, written by Jeff Parker, art by Evan Shaner and Steve Rude, plus a host of other contributors, turned in a darn good yarn, updating classic Jonny Quest for the modern era. The art and story brings back fond memories of watching Jonny Quest on the TV when I was a kid. complete with nemesis Dr. Zin and his robot spiders, right out of Memory Lane.
Future Quest is a mash-up, with superheroes abounding and what appears inter-dimensional beings. Who knows.
So, with this first issue, I think Future Quest is off to a good start and I am looking forward to the second issue. So is my daughter, who gave it a big thumbs-up, and she has never seen the original Jonny Quest cartoons, so that’s saying something. Looking forward to issue #2.
