Rapture #1 of 4)

   It starts with a quest that involves death traps, supernatural creatures, riddles and giants - which is what I would call a good beginning.

   From there, the mini-series Rapture from Valiant Comics becomes a more traditional team first issue - which is to say, it's all about building the team.

   Because the threat is a supernatural, end-of-the-world kinda thing, the team is a bit out of the ordinary.

   It's being assembled by Tama, the world's Geomancer, and includes Ninjak (because you'd always want him on your team), Punk Mambo, a voodoo priestess who provides magical tools to the arsenal, and Shadowman, another magic-based character who's, well, pretty creepy.

   The story is by Matt Kindt and the art is by Cafu, and it's a fun start to what promises to be a heavy-hitting series.

Grade: A-
