Future Quest #8

   So my theory is that Future Quest is so attractive to fans of Saturday morning cartoons that the top artists are lining up for a chance to draw an issue.

   For example, this issue is drawn by Ariel Olivetti, and it's stunning work, with a powerful, painted style.

   My only complaint is that one scene is a bit too horrific - it doesn't fit the high spirits / high adventure tone of the rest of the series.

   But once we get past that, there's a lot to like here. Birdman and Mightor in action! Space Ghost and the Impossibles! The return of the Herculoids! And Jonny Quest, Hadji, Jan and Buzz try to find a way to help! (Not to mention Race, Dr. Quest and more!)

   It's a brilliant reimagining of the classic cartoon characters as they gather to fight a terrifying menace.

   Love it!
