Another issue of Lightstep from Dark Horse and this one takes a mighty leap for outer space adventure!

This time around in Lightstep, we are deep in space. January Lee is banished from her home world. She wouldn’t kill her brother in a compulsory battle. So now, she’s rescued by a roaming “radio pirate” named Jazzman. Well, she is gorgeous, with a finely refined body clothed tightly in futuristic fabric. And he is a devilish rascal, with abs of iron and legs like telephone posts. What’s not entertaining about that?

The story is not just about the ‘beautiful people’, however. There is great evil orbiting around the place, and an impending time/space battle is a life or death situation for the two travelers. Can January quickly develop the skill of ‘future thinking’ in order to defeat an approaching threat?

Milos Slavkovic is writer and artist of this stunning story. Its writing is mightier than Jazzman’s abs, its words are shapelier than January’s tights, and the illustrations are absolutely breathtaking. This title is a tour-de-force, and you really should check it out.

Dark Horse, Lightstep #2, #3.99 for 31 pages of content. 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!!
