ComiXology dropped Stone Star #1, new series for its digital originals line yesterday, from writer Jim Zub and artist Max Dunbar.
Stone Star is a mobile asteroid where entertainment abounds, and competition and celebrity are intertwined. Gladiators fight to find their fortune, but there are other secrets lurking beneath the surface as a new season begins. Evoking the very best of science fiction, cyberpunk, and modern-day sports entertainment, Stone Star follows the story of Dail, a teenage thief who is pulled into the arena and has to decide where his loyalties lie. Zub and Dunbar have created a fast-paced adventure full of stunning sights, intense action, and colorful characters.
“Stone Star is a wild mix of everything that ignited my imagination growing up – strange creatures with a fantasy flare, weird worlds, and unexpected danger,” says writer Jim Zub. “Max is channeling that excitement and unleashing it on every page with a level of kinetic action and detail that readers have never seen from him before.”
“It’s exciting to surprise fans with a new series no one knew was coming,” said comiXology Originals Head of Content Chip Mosher. “We love Stone Star Zub and Dunbar have really delivered the goods and we know that new and existing comic fans will enjoy the heck out of this rollicking sci-fi adventure. And with digital distribution we can surprise and delight readers everywhere with new content they didn’t know was coming. It’s a blast!”
