"Starburn" is the fastest ship in the Galaxy, its the kind of ship you don't buy you steal! That's exactly what its current owners did. The Motley Crew of space scoundrels and smugglers will take on any job for the right price.
Overall, it's a strong first issue from a team of upcoming creators. Like any good introduction, it successfully establishes characters first and then builds the plot for the final page cliffhanger. The artwork is of an especially high calibre, it can comfortably stand next to the fantastic science-fiction comics that publishers such as Image are producing right now and will fit perfectly into Markosia's upcoming line up and back catalogue.Fans of Firefly and/or Guardians of the Galaxy will feel right at home when reading Starburn #1.

This book could not have had more perfect timing. With the Box Office success of Marvels most intergalactic franchise it is good to see someone else telling a good story that reads as though it were a script for a movie or series. This is definitely a book worth the read even though it serves mostly as an introduction issue that aims to introduce a very colourful bunch of characters. The Starburn launches at exactly the right time, when the world desires space adventure the most! Read Full Review
Overall, it's a decent read with a plot that moves along briskly but it won't leave a lasting impression on the reader. Today's comics and television have embraced a decompressed story telling format, allowing for slower and deeper development of character which ultimately leads to a bigger payoff for the reader or viewer. Starburn's main weakness is in its lack character development so that readers have a reason care about who lives and who dies. Focusing on deeper development of just a few of the characters' backgrounds and motivations would have made some of the events affecting them more impactful to the reader. Read Full Review
