    One thought on “Kaptara, Vol. 1: Fear Not, Tiny Alien”

    1. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/I picked up Kaptara for a multitude of reasons: (1) The liburrrrrry didn’t have Howard the Duck; (2) John Waters blurbed it; and (3) Sam hated it. Now, I don’t make a habit of requesting things Sam hates, but since he hates almost everything sometimes it happens. It also confirmed that I most definitely have the mentality of a 12-year old because I thought this was full of hardy-hars.It started on the very first page . . . Between the uniforms and the [...]

    2. Chip Zdarsky and Kagan McLeod’s Kaptara is a supposed sci-fi “comedy” that’s about as funny as watching someone die of ebola. The series is a parody of 80s cartoons like Masters of the Universe and Thundercats though I don’t know who’s been waiting for anything like that. An astronaut called Keith crash-lands on the alien planet Kaptara after being sucked into a wormhole on his way to Mars. On Kaptara he meets character-types from the aforementioned titles as well as Smurfs parodies. [...]

    3. *Received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for honest reviewOk. I was really looking forward to reading this, and I think my high expectations may have caused me to be a little let down. I love the potential for this series, and the art is absolutely beautiful and vibrant but the characters are really lacking depth. I'm hoping this will improve as it goes on.

    4. I received this book for free from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.Video review: youtube/watch?v=unYr_This is a graphic novel about space, aliens and just total weirdness. I absolutely love Saga, so thought this might end up being similar enough in vain for me to also enjoy, this sadly was not the case. This is probably more a case of this particular graphic novel series not being my cup of tea, rather than it being terrible. So make sure you read over reviews and make [...]

    5. (Mike's thoughts before reading) Chip you mad Canadian bastard, you Bette blow my mind here.(Mike's thoughts after reading) UmmHere's the basics: Shit goes sideways right quick for these under-prepared space-farers.And while it's happening I'm thinking, "Why did these mostly-nice people have to get hammered in the anus so fucking quickly after we see them 'start' their adventure?" Which is weird, because clearly they've been at their space-training (let alone their world-conqueringly amazing spe [...]

    6. This book suffers from the same problem as Zdarsky's Howard the Duck: it's not funny enough to be exciting just for what it is, and it is not serious enough to be a good story. There is not a single character in Kaptara I could give a damn about, nor is there a plot for which I want to come back. It's all just a bunch of ugly looking dudes telling bad fart jokes on some far away planet with aliens. If you write something like this, there must be at least some amount of good story elements or you [...]

    7. This comic is so weird. But it's funny. It's kinda like He-Man on acid. Kinda. Or maybe Conan the Barbarian written by Ed Roth. Hmmmm. That might be the same thing. And I need my own Motivational Orb to follow me around. And what's with Melvon the naked wizard?I love the 2-page spread at the end, and the explanations! I’d hate to see the inside of this writer's head. In fact, I have to give this an extra star just for that ending. Favorite quote: I'm such a nerd! I want to beat me up! I really [...]

    8. Don't let the two-star rating deter you. This wasn't bad; it just wasn't my cup of tea. I had some doubts about whether I would like an entire series of Chip Zdarsky (current run of Howard the Duck, illustrator of Sex Criminals) humor, especially since I don't generally like funny things, and, in the end, those doubts turned out to be correct, mostly.I enjoyed Kaptara for about the first 2.5 issues, and it was a good mix of witty, dude speak, and liberal jokes, but in the end, I just wanted the [...]

    9. This one sits at a 3.5 for me, but there's enough here to push it over. Character depth is severely lacking, with constant banter in place of developmental dialogue. The story is also a bit oddly split between being a Star Trek style space story about wormholes, and being an over-the-top He-Man parody. I think Kaptara might have been stronger if it had stuck more closely to the latter concept, but maybe Chip has something in store for us that blends the genres in a fun way down the line. Anyway, [...]

    10. Thanks to Jim for rec'ing this one! This was so much fun. There was wackiness, intriguing art, and a journey through a foreign planet encountering all kinds of shenanigans. I really enjoyed how each group of inhabitants that we meet has its own distinct culture and backstory. Zdarsky is fleshing out this vibrant world filled with colorful characters and unique histories. I enjoyed the scandals and intrigues of Kaptara more than the characters' quest to save Earth from the threat of invasion, but [...]

    11. Alien planet.Cat-tanks.Naked Wizard.That alone would make me pick up a story. Kaptara has all of that and oh so much more.It's like Saga meets Black Science only a heck of a lot funnier. The story doesn't take itself to seriously, and in this case, that's a good thing.This book is bonkers. I love it!

    12. I did enjoy this story. But overall, it never sucked me in, and I never thought it was as funny as it wa ted me too. Some good art. Some funny characters and situations, all of which struggle to mesh. This was an enjoyable enough story just not able to pull off everything it wanted to.

    13. What did I just read? Uck. I didn't like this. The description of this book said: "Keith Kanga crash lands on KAPTARA, a world filled with danger and weird danger and dangerous weirdos! And if he can't survive, then Earth, the place where YOU live, is doomed! Come check out this sci-fi comedy from Chip Zdarsky (SEX CRIMINALS) and Kagan McLeod (Infinite Kung-Fu). Collects KAPTARA #1-5."I'm not sure what I was expecting but it wasn't this 1984-Saturday-Morning-Cartoons-on-Crack-Pink-and-Purple-Fur [...]

    14. Chip Zdarsky's art on Sex Criminals has made him one of the big names in Image's current renaissance; here, as writer, he brings some of the same smutty glee to what seems a fairly niche project - an adult-oriented He-Man piss-take. So a misanthropic gay astronaut finds himself stranded in a strange world which initially seems much more to his taste than Earth (all those muscles!), until he realises he's surrounded by disturbing freaks and idiot psychos. Meanwhile, the skull-headed lord of evil [...]

    15. This is a total blast! Starting out as science fiction the space travellers end up on a fantasy world planet inhabited by people who suspiciously seem to be from He-Man of the Universe. From that, I'm taking this to be a cross between a parody of He-Man and barbarian fantasy in general. The book is absolutely hilarious while having a well-plotted storyline. The characters are all wonderful whether they are the good guy, bad guy or weirdly insane guy. The main character is a black guy who is mode [...]

    16. This is just pure, unadulterated, super-silly fun. It's now filling the weird-shaped hole that God Hates Astronauts left in my heart.

    17. Alright so, I've talked crap about this book in my reviews a few times calling it one of the worst books ever. I figured I should give a full, snark-filled explanation of why it's one of the worst books ever.What's it about:A space ship full of people crash lands onto a planet as our s***ty protagonist needs to find his way home.The story is bland. It's another oh s*** this planet's in danger but this guy has to get home so we gotta focus on both of those things without adding anything unique to [...]

    18. I was actually surprised how good this was, since the cover gave me the impression of a dark and grave story, but this was actually hilarious! There was that darkness and gravity too, but overall Kaptara is more like a space adventure with characters full of persona. So, we have this group of humans traveling through space and they end up in a worm hole of sorts by accident and through it to a planet called Kaptara. The planet is full of weirdos and Keith tries to find his other crew members and [...]

    19. Weird and glorious! Twist on discovering a new world. Captivating plot and illustrations. The main character is a queer POC and the other human character is a female POC. Makes this book that more unique. One of the best parts was the cursing. You're not going to be on your best behaviour while crash-landing. "Fucks" will freely come out, and the author doesn't shy away from it. There are so many species created throughout these few issues. Not just weirdly drawn characters, but those with their [...]

    20. Keith Kanga is a scientist on a trip to Mars when he and his shipmates are marooned on the mysterious planet Kaptara. Thus begins the freaky fun adventures of a rag tag group of aliens intent on getting Keith home and saving Earth from the evil alien Skullthor. This was a fun read with lots of cool, psychedelic art. Trippy colors throughout make this fun to look at and pithy, subversive jokes and one liners make it fun to read. I can't wait for more!!

    21. La verdad es que la cantidad de referencias de cultura pop me sacaban un poco de la historia, pero me lo he pasado muy bien leyéndolo. También porque es Chip Zdarsky y eso siempre es bien. Muy El Mago de Oz en el espacio y on crack.

    22. It kind of reminds me of all my favorite sci-fi Image books mixed with He-man and Chip Zdarsky's humor. If that sounds appealing to you then you will love this book.

    23. Not as funny as I thought it would be. The old 80's sci-fi/fantasy parody vibe was amusing and a really neat idea, but it wasn't pushed far enough. All the tropes were there, but that was about it. There was no commentary or deeper humor below the surface. And all the actual "jokes" were more miss than hit. It also didn't help that most of the characters were shallow or that the main character was pretty intolerable. Keith was the worst. First of all, the writer made the mistake of trying to mak [...]

    24. This is a fun and twisted variation on classic He-Man cartoons with lots of fun little details from classic cartoons added in for the reader to find and enjoy. A bizarre mix of fantasy and science-fiction that works surprisingly well to tell a solid story. It felt a bit rushed as I was reading, yet it felt like the pacing was perfect once I got to the end and absorbed all the craziness I'd just read. In the end, the best way to describe it is madcap. You finish reading and you're still not compl [...]
