HASH(0xa0929f84) out of 5 stars Maybe this would appeal to very young readers Dec 20 2014
By Alt - Published on
Format: Paperback
Darien's dad was an astronaut which should exempt him from being picked on, but he's a nerd so the jocks pick on him anyway. It's a law of nature. Darien's dad apparently crash lands on Mars, but more than a year later Darien's eyes start to glow as he's being hoisted up a flagpole by the jock brigade. Somehow he finds himself on a spaceship where a Star Mage tells him that he has the heritage of a warrior, having been born to Dalidor the Magnificent, a great sorcerer. That's news to Darien, although being a nerd he seems perfectly willing to accept his nerdish new reality.

Darien is suddenly thrown into a quasi-Star Wars scenario and discovers his latent magic powers. All of which is silly, predictable, and lacking any semblance of actual drama. Darien is likable enough and his dialog is less stilted than the other characters, who are trying too hard to be godlike or badass.

This story might appeal to a very young audience (in fact, I suspect it would) but for more mature readers, it's just kind of dull. The art is a little too "gosh wow" for my taste.
HASH(0xa0931558) out of 5 stars Mixing science fiction and fantasy rarely works. And it doesn't work here either. Dec 17 2014
By Wayne A McCoy - Published on
Format: Paperback
'Star Mage, The First Series' combines science fiction with fantasy. This is something that rarely works, and it doesn't really work here either.

Poor Darien Connors. When we meet him, bullies have tied him from the flagpole at his school. His father is an astronaut on his way to Mars, and no one has heard from him. But lucky Darien. He's about to find out some crazy unusual things about himself. He's from another planet and his parents are named Dalidor and Kaela, and he has two brothers. Except most of them are gone and one of his brothers (who looks old enough to be his dad) has gone evil. Good thing he's got innate wizard powers that never manifested to him while he was on Earth. Hmmm.

It's a story that's been done before, and, unfortunately, better. Also, made up names and spells are okay and part of speculative fiction, but the names for things in this were so weird that they sounded more made up than usual to me ("Isatumi!", "Girru" and "Dingergisbar" for example) and that becomes a problem because it kept pulling me from the story. Then there are all the plot twists that eventually became laughable. It was a quick enough read, but there are much better things you could be reading.

I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, IDW Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
HASH(0xa09342c4) out of 5 stars Plenty of "been there, done that" feels in the story but it slowly builds and, most importantly, entertains. Dec 24 2014
By Mariano Ortiz - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The story does try very well to create it's own universe and characters. It slowly builds up and develops it's characters as it progresses so for a first volume, it does a good job. The artwork is also great. If you're a fan of science fiction, fantasy, and adventure, definitely give this a try.
