Stone Star Season 2 #1 Reviews

Drop The Spotlight: “Exactly the kind of thing I look for in a comic book, a great story, well-written characters and dialogue, artwork that’s beautifully colored, I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this!”

Fanboy Factor: “Max Dunbar is outdoing his previous top-notch environment and action work in this new season, bringing in a whole new A-Game of visual interpretation. Together with Espen Grundetjern on colours and Marshall Dillon on lettering, this team is offering a fun, funky take on mechs, men, women, and beasts.”

Reading With a Flightring: “This is so charming and so well told that you can get lost in this world and left wishing you could explore the city itself.”

Comic Watch: 8.6/10 “The dynamic artwork and superb world-building make Stone Star an incredibly fun read for anybody looking for a new series in the genre.”

Fanboy Factor: “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.”

Modern Gafa: “The artwork beautifully brings us into a world that’s original and full of colorful aliens and the writing makes sure we want to stick around too.”

Nerdenthum: “The world is getting bigger and the prologue in this issue helps us to understand it much better. It’s an action packed and interesting world that is well illustrated.”
