Comic Bastards weighs in with a very cool review for Star Mage #1.
Some quotes include…
The thing I really dug about Star Mage is that it takes a ton of Sci-Fi tropes and adds it to the “chosen one” storyline and finds a way to make it all work. I’ve read other stories that have attempted to mix and match influences, but in sci-fi it becomes painfully obvious what a creator is going for and that usually kills the story. With Star Mage I was able to acknowledge the influences and still just enjoy the read.
This was a fun issue pure and simple. I think as far as first issues go it was successful in setting up the backstory and preparing for the real conflict of the series. I’m looking forward to reading more and you should definitely keep an eye out for it once it becomes available. If you backed the Kickstarter project then you made the right choice and will be happy with the final product.
