'Knight Rider, Vol. 1' is a sort of reboot of the original series, and this volume serves as a sort of origin story.
The story starts with Michael Knight out on a date with scientist Katherine. He's got a smart car, but it's not quite the one we know yet. They all work for a shadow organization and Katherine is in charge of Project:Rider, a top secret project that seems to have to do with the car that Michael drives. When they are attacked, they learn of a betrayal within their very organization. The car goes through a few upgrades and becomes more familiar to those who have watched the show.
Except the car seems to have a weird affectation, that I won't spoil here. It just made the whole story a bit strange. Then there is Michael acting touchy-feely. The origin story is the first four issues, then there is a different additional story with different art. It seems like it's got something workable, but based on this, I'm not so sure.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, IDW Publishing, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
