Rising Stars Volume 3: Fire and Ash – J. Michael Straczynski

Rising Stars 3

This is the last volume in the series and it does not disappoint. There is plenty of story left to tell and while the ending might not be as dark and gritty as you would like it does certainly maintain the spirt that has pervaded this work.

It begins with an excellent recap for those who put down the last volume some time ago. With less characters now everything seems more focussed. This story has aged and matured and this is the wisest book looking to impart a lesson and maybe some optimism we can all take away.

The art feels just as good and thematic as it always has done. There are a lot of night scenes and plenty of good contrast.

Farewell and Thumbs Up!
