    One thought on “Mazeworld”

    1. An interesting story, accompanied by nice graphics, about second chance and redemption, inspired from a true fact.

    2. Arthur Ranson's art, as ever, is a joy, his intricacy perfectly suited to the twisting architecture of Mazeworld; even the panel borders sometimes contain labyrinths of their own, and by that point you're starting to see even the lines of faces as shadow-mazes of their own. His demons, scoundrels and looming pyramids recall the ancient, decayed worlds of Clark Ashton Smith, and make one wish he'd illustrated some of Steve Moore's Smith-homaging Tales of Telguuth for 2000AD. Alas, as in Ranson's [...]

    3. One small ideea from the story was taken from a true fact and this makes the graphic novel more dramatic.A fellow condemned to death goes into the Mazeworld and becomes, until the end, a great Hero.The graphics are well made and the story is interesting enough to keep you wanting more.

    4. I'd heard of this story which first appeared in 2000AD, a UK comic, and I knew Arthur Ranson's art from the Look-In comic but this was the first time I'd met Mazeworld. The story hooked me from the start. A hanging man encounters an alternative world whilst dangling! We then follow his adventures. What was intended as a computer game, then became a one-off in 2000AD became three stories. The story doesn't move smoothly as I'd like but the concept and characters make up for this and the artwork b [...]

    5. Five star art, three star story. Fun and sometimes inventive comic fantasy story from the pages of 2000AD.

    6. This was great. It reminded me of a late 70's/early 80's B-horror/fantasy movie that would've appeared on Mystery Science Theater 3000 but I would've secretly enjoyed the movie on its own.
