The world's first and only superhero has disappeared after undergoing a cataclysmic fall from grace in the eyes of the world. Middle-aged and unable to support his operations he had made a preposterous claim that the world was in danger, a notion derided by the media and the public at large. But what if the claim is true? Outcast writer and infamous murderess Charlie Chance, AKA The Pet, finds herself searching for the one man who was able to bring her to justice - Captain Stone.

    Cap Stone #1 is a very engrossing issue about Charlie Chance's life story and how she became the Pet. It's an engaging story that details her thinking and her relationship with her father, the master thief Craven Panther. And the gorgeous artwork makes all of it that much more enjoyable. While reading it the first time I wasn't sure how this was connected to Captain Stone nor did I have any idea how he was a superhero. However it ultimately did connect to him in a manner that would make the search for him in the next issue(s) that much more intense. So I'm glad I decided to read this issue because now I want to see where the story is headed and don't want to miss anything. Read Full Review

    McCormack and Sharp have written a tantalizing mystery.  In Charlie, they created an interesting character and created a need for her to discover what happened to the missing title character.  With this impressive  first, the creative team has promised a lot.  Hopefully they can deliver.

    Despite feeling betrayed by the advertising of the book, the story and character development of Charlie Chance is top notch. Her character is very relatable, but there is also a big mystery surrounding her. Liam Sharp's artwork is really the highlight of the book providing a psychedelic setting as well as different styles throughout the book. The cliffhanger does not really work due to a complete lack of information on Captain Stone.ProsLiam Sharp's psychedelic artworkExcellent character development of Charlie ChanceConsA sense of false marketing in regards to learning about the missing superhero, Captain StoneA cliffhanger that lacks any punch due to a lack of information on Captain StoneOverall Score: 8.5 Read Full Review

    If you pick up Cap Stone #1 prepare to be challenged and don't expect any answers in this first issue. It's a seriesfor the discerning reader who likes painterly artwork anddreamy prose more than linear storytelling. Read Full Review

    This is somewhat eased by the qualityof writing and the artwork so I'm willing to give it a pass. Butunless next issue perks up and gets a move on, I'm consigning this tothe 'wait till it's out as a trade' category. Read Full Review

    Maybe there's hope for efficient and interesting motion comics to the point where some might make a good transition to the printed page. But Captain Stone #1 is the negative paragon of everything such transcriptions will have to fix in order to make this work in the future. Read Full Review
