"LOST IN THE WILDS OF HEAVEN," Part One: Being a space trucker sounds like a cool job, but in reality, it can be boring as hell. So when recently widowed Gil gets a long-haul gig across the universe, he figures it's safe enough to bring his young son Kadyn along for the ride-that is, until their "big rig" gets bitten in half by a gigantic Space Leviathan! Now separated from his son-with a breached suit that's venting oxygen at an alarming rate-Gil must defy the odds and stay alive long enough to rescue Kadyn. But meanwhile, Kadyn seems to be getting all the help he needs from a talking Space Monkey riding a Space Dolphin... or maybe it's the more

    But Why Tho? - Max Funkey Jul 3, 2019

    Overall, Sea of Stars #1 is a strong first issue. Plenty of time is spent establishing the emotional stakes of the rest of the series, which I appreciate. I am fascinated with seeing where this series will go. If you enjoy science-fiction or are looking for a good way to dip your toes in, this is a great series to check out. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Jul 3, 2019

    Artist Stephen Green, put a lot of love into Sea of Stars #1, hitting it out of the park with some incredible detailed panels. I'll be shocked if he can keep up the pace through the rest of Volume #1. Sea of Stars #1 comes with 2 covers; CVR A GREEN, and the CVR B by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. There are some retail variants according to Jason Aaron. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Jul 3, 2019

    The best thing that I can say about Sea of Stars is that it gives readers enough to keep you interested and coming back for more. I do wish we would get to know a little more about the characters. However, it's a great introduction that teases mysteries and sets up an intriguing premise. I don't know where it's going to go but that's part of the fun and I'm looking forward to more. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 3, 2019

    Sea of Stars is off to a pretty solid start with its first issue. The pulpy space fantasy edges in the direction of cute without compromising a sense of danger and adventure. The final page of the issue suggests that theres real menace coming on the horizon of the next issue. As cute as the first issue is, its really a father-son story of adventure that feels like it could go in interesting directions as a father searches for his son who is being cared for by weird aliens.  Read Full Review
