Tales Of Colossus
Mark Andrews
Image Comics
$17.99 US (Paperback)
*** 1/2 (out of five)

It’s new and improved — just don’t call it Colossus Redux.
Six years after this book was first published, writer/illustrator Mark Andrews has decided to go back and do it right. He felt his initial attempt at telling this story — about a medieval knight magically trapped in a hulking metal body — was rushed, and as a result sloppy.
Well, he was right. And while the new result still might not be everyone’s cup of tea, it is a nicer read. This isn’t Lucas making Greedo shoot first or Speilberg removing the guns from E.T., it’s more like taking an analog cartoon from the 1980s and digitally remastering it.
Andrews, an Emmy Award-winning director/story supervisor who has worked on such projects as The Incredibles, Star Wars: Clone Wars and Samurai Jack, has a pretty good story to tell and if he’s happy with it, chances you will be too.
