'''Linkara:''' So let's dig into ''(holds up today's comic)'' "Dart #1" and see what was so awful and see what was so awful about a mid-'90s Image comic. Can't imagine what would be wrong with it.

'''Linkara (v/o):''' The cover is... a bit odd in its coloring. It looks very washed-out and light, which admittedly makes it look different from a lot of Image's other output at the time, where the name of the game was dark or incomprehensible. But no, we can see ''this'' cover just fine. And it's a pity that it looks like crap. Aside from the fact that Dart's eyes look ''huge''...
 
 
''(Cut to a clip of an episode of ''Power Rangers RPM'')''
 
 
'''Flynn McAllistair, Ranger Blue (Ari Boyland):''' ''(to the other Rangers)'' Big, googly, anime eyes!
 
 
''(Cut back to the comic)''
 
 
'''Linkara (v/o):''' ...something seems off about her proportions. The head ''seems'' bigger, thanks to the massive amount of hair flowing everywhere and the giant eyes and lips but tiny nose. I think this would actually look fine if those were reined in a bit. Just look at how much hair that is! Starfire is jealous about the personal blanket she's sporting. Then again, the cover itself does not exactly impress, even if the artwork was good. It's not a good sign for your first issue when it featured your title character ''literally sitting in garbage''. I'm not fond of the logo, either. I give it points for looking unique, and I ''think'' the idea is to give it a pointy look for, you know, darts and all, but it ends up just looking more techno-y, especially with how some of the letters are stylized to look like the number 1.
 
 
''(The comic opens to the first page)''
 
 
'''Linkara (v/o):''' We open in Detroit.
 
 
'''Narrator:''' Detroit--1990. A soiled playground of crime and corruption...
 
 
'''Linkara:''' Don't worry, I hear that Robocop is coming in to fix all this.
 
   
 
'''Linkara (v/o):''' Now, at first, it may appear that the artwork is just really amateurish, but what we're actually seeing in these panels is a bunch of kids playing with action figures. Aaaand then when we pull back, we see that the art ''is'' bad, just differently, as we see a bunch of big-eyed children playing.
