Jim Zub’s new indie title continues its unearthly ride this month with the Comixology-only release of Stone Star #2.

Stone Star (referring to an intergalactic traveling ship that provides entertainment) is a fun read. Dail, the young scavenger and thief has been caught up in the midst of the abduction of the Drenne royal family. It’s time for swordplay and trickery, in the hopes of rescuing them! When this becomes ‘complicated’, how will Dail and Kikanni escape the evil doers?

Zub welcomes new readers onboard in a smooth way, by means of explanatory captions.
By the second page, we’re up to speed and racing along with Dail and crew.

I like Max Dunbar’s line art. It’s imaginative and descriptive without being overwrought with detail. Espen Grundetjern contributes heavy tonal colouring in the early pages of the issue but opens up the palate nicely with the breathtaking atmosphere of Quell-World.

Altogether a fun adventure easily jumped into. Give it a try!

Comixology-only, Stone Star #2, $2.99 for 20 pages of story, Rating not provided, assume Teen

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
