Rising Stars Volume 4 – Fiona Avery

Rising Stars 4Rather than attempt the disastrous task of continuing the story past its definitive ending this volume presents two spin-offs that focus on individual characters. We have three issues about Matthew Bright’s days as a cop and Lionel Zerb’s communication with the dead.

These have been written intelligently and with reverence for the original source material and timeline but don’t compare to the epic story Straczynski was telling. There are some interesting techniques used but the Zerb story wanders all over the place as if being written as it was published.

The art and colouring is excellent. It is vibrant and detailed and even the lettering gets the odd flourish.

If you can’t get enough of the Specials then check it out otherwise you won’t miss anything vital.

Thumbs Up.
