In part two of five issues, Image’s Sea of Stars picks up where it left off; in outer space.

Space trucker (Deep Purple soundtrack, anyone?) Gil and his son Kadyn have had some uh ‘problems’ en route to their destination. In fact, Dad is floating along, stranded without much hope of survival, and Kadyn has been ushered into a new group of alien friends who are just fascinated with him!

We’re quickly up to speed, so to speak, and we also realize that Dad needs to save his own life before chasing after Kadyn.

Jason Aaron and Dennis Hallum write and Stephen Green (Rico Renzi on colours) illustrates this colourful, kinetic journey through the unknown regions of space. It’s catchy, entertaining, heartfelt stuff. The drawings are nicely thought out and clearly rendered, and the colouring by Renzi is magnificent. Lots of fun to read, so jump into your suit and catch this blast of fresh, non-recycled air, at your local comic shop!

Image, Sea of Stars #2, $3.99 for 26 pages of content. Rated 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!!
