The Orrery is a clockwork solar system where planets whirl on vast metal arms and the sun of cogs is worshpped as a god. But the sun is dying, the planets are freezing one by one, and cults burn as heretics those who warn of the danger. To save her home, young Wren knows she must first escape it and find the key to restart the sun. An incredible new SF-clockpunk series from the bestselling artist of New Deadwardians and the writer of Scarlet Traces.

    We end the issue on a fantastic sight, the mechanical details of which hint at greater revelations to come. But then, with its terrifying vistas and mind-bending concept, this issue is a minor revelation unto itself. It's always a delight to see a unique idea executed with flair, and now that it's accessible on this side of the pond, "Brass Sun" should earn its fair share of worshippers. Read Full Review

    I was pulled into the world of Brass Sun and carried along by the art and story until I hit the final page, left craving more and astonished that so much had happened. I'll definitely be back for more and I understand the heaps of praise that are regularly piled onto 2000 AD (which is where this was originally presented). If you didn't experience this when it was originally presented in 2000 AD, take the opportunity provided by this comic to immerse yourself in the world of Brass Sun. If you're like me you'll be glad you did. Read Full Review

    Brass Sun opens strong and finishes even stronger. The story and world established by Edginton is enough to peak your interest but the way it unfolds and the characters living in it will instantly bring you back. Culbard's beautiful art helps further build the complex world and characters of Brass Sun. Praise be to the Cog, praise be to Brass Sun! Read Full Review

    If you are always up for an adventure, are a fan of sci-fi/fantasy, or just a huge nerd for world-buildery, I can safely recommend Brass Sun's story. Despite this recommendation, however, I have to emphasize that I am not reviewing this story in a bubble and am reviewing the product being released today, a 208 page,25.00,hardcover collection. And in my opinion, hardcovers are the kind of thing you buy only if youknowyou are going to love a story, or have already read it elsewhere and plan on rereading it and showing it off for the rest of your life. If you're heeding my recommendation and think Brass Sun is worth a shot, buy it digitally at 9.99, or wait for the paperback. Read Full Review

    Summing the issue up I must say I rather enjoyed it, the joy of a miniseries is that I know that what will unfold will have a complete beginning, middle and end which I must say I find particularly enticing, certainly I want to see what the second issue has to say as hopefully the characters fill out and a clear goal is established allowing for a tight, concise story to be told.
