    Starhenge is the book that I didnt know I needed until right now. If its been some thirty years of on and off tinkering to get to this point, then it has been well worth the wait. One never wants a good thing to end before its begun but Im already champing at the bit to see a collected works. Read Full Review

    ‘StarHenge' #1 is a cosmic epic in the making, set in the dark ages of Celtic Britain, contemporary America and the stars themselves as writer/artist Liam Sharp weaves a saga for the ages with suitably stunning art to match. Read Full Review

    Yes, this issue is a lot. But it's a good form of a lot, something that you should read over and over to fully get the nuances and richness from. Absolutely incredible. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Jul 9, 2022

    Starhenge #1 is a fascinating first chapter in what looks to be an intricate piece of science fantasy. Boosted by strong visuals, it's easy to overlook some tonal inconsistencies with the narration. Read Full Review

    Wildly imaginative and visually astonishing, Liam Sharp's StarHenge will be a challenge for some to engage with, but is a real treat for those who take the dive into this comic's stunning use of mythology. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Jul 8, 2022

    'Starhenge' is an immersive experience full of exquisite art and a classic story reimagined through a magical sci-fi lens. Enthralling to be sure if not a little confusing but worth the trip. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Jul 6, 2022

    A large variety of spaceships and alien architecture fill the pages set in the future, and they give this universe a grim look and feel. One splash page, where several ships wage battle, lighting up space with orange explosions and laser fire, is especially beautiful. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Michael Farris Jr. Jul 6, 2022

    Starhenge #1 is nothing if not ambitious, and while there is much to digest in this first issue, there is much more promised that will bring this sci-fi, Arthurian epic into focus. While some readers might not have the patience to stick it out, there are sure to be spellbound fans eager to summon the following issues into their collection. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 6, 2022

    I wanted to really like Starhenge #1 and as a concept I do. But, the flow of the narrative and art aren't quite polished creating a slightly jarring experience. You can piece together what's going on but it takes a bit to really connect the dots as things are laid out and a lot of questions remain. It's a sci-fi story that you just go with the flow, even if that flow is going to turn into a time traveling loop of a time. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jun 14, 2022

    So, when all is said and done, Starhenge #1 starts a story that feels interesting at its core but struggles with some severe clashes in tone. With how prevalent the narrator is throughout this story, this clash hinders the book to a severe degree. Read Full Review

    "Feels Like Something Special"

    Star Henge Book One: The Dragon and The Boar
    Writer/Artist: Liam Sharp | Additional Art by Matylda McCormack-Sharp | Publisher: Image Comics

    I have been a fan of Liam Sharps work for years and was excited to support this creator-owned project as soon as I saw the solicit on the Comic Hub App. Liam does double duty as Writer and Artist which is a combination that proves to be comics gold.

    Star Henge is a high concept project that blends Sci-fi and Fantasy. Book One lays the groundwork for the series, introducing characters and laying the worldbuilding foundation.

    If I am interpreting the issue correctly, humanity discovers faster than light more

    It looks great, but i'm not sure about that plot. Especially the one set in the modern day.

    The art in this book is something else. For me it is the main selling point of the comic. But the story is a bit hard to read. I don't think it's supposed to make sense, but the allure of this wears down quickly. The characters talk a lot without saying much. The illustrations and paneling are awe inspiring but at the same time convoluted. It is a comic I admittedly enjoy for its uniquely epic artwork and overall narrative, but find hard to recommend.

    Don't think the casual 'chill' narration fits with the story. It feels jarring.
