Sue Doyle: I always enjoy Simon Davis’s artwork and although this prog's storyline is not original it does have some novel ideas: it introduces our new member to some genocide and the reasons behind the name Damnation, not something you expect to type in a sentence anywhere.
Clean dialogue, superb art I think that this is one which I’m growing to like more and more rather than an instant wow, but hey that’s no bad thing.
John Amans: One of the new stories of the prog and with that brings the all of the problems of new stories (originality, unknown characters and readers perception) with the added problem of being crammed in a prog with some real quality series. Added to this the basic problem is that Damnation station simply reminds us of other stories centred around Alien warfare .
Reading some of the past reviews it struck me that this week's episode encompasses all of the previously mentioned comments. Though the artwork is very colourful and atmospheric but I have no idea who the characters are. One of those got wasted this week and I couldn’t remember who he was, what the story is really about and I don’t really get all of the sympathetic “don’t kill the alien kids” stuff either.
I read last weeks to reacquaint myself a little with what was going in but still found it all too rushed and confusing. Despite all of this, I have seen a lot worse!
