    Gil’s a spaceship captain, hauling goods from one place to another, and joining him on his latest assignment, because he couldn’t get a sitter and his wife is gone, is his lil boy Kadyn. Something happens! And they’re separated. Dad’s gotta find his boy - but it looks like a misfit band of aliens has gotten to him first. Boy oh boy, what’s gonna happen next??? Jason Aaron and co’s newest comic is Sea of Sentimental Smoosh! Only one issue in and I can already tell where it’s all headed.

Jason Aaron and co’s newest comic is Sea of Sentimental Smoosh! Only one issue in and I can already tell where it’s all headed. The tagline at the back pretty much says it all: “A father. A son. And a whole lot of space between them.” Get it? Both literally AND emotionally cos they’re dealing with wife/mom’s death. And the aliens who find Kadyn - it’s like Timon and Pumbaa, Bagheera and Baloo, etc. This is such a corny Disneyfied comic. And just as an aside - Dennis Hallum. Marvel readers have probably seen his pseudonym “Dennis Hopeless” on a buncha books - I knew it couldn’t be his real name, and it wasn’t. But what an idiot - the point of working at Marvel is to establish your name with the widest possible readership before trying to take it with you when you do your creator-owned stuff. Changing it AFTER YOU LEAVE Marvel defeats that point completely! How doofy of him - how… hopeless! Sea of Stars #1 is not a bad comic, it’s just not my cup of tea. The writing and art is fine but the story doesn’t appeal at all and this first issue hasn’t made me want to read more. I’m sure comics-reading dads will love this one to bits though.

    I love the cross between sci-fi and fantasy here. Really beautiful artwork. I liked the cliffhangers it left us on. I’m optimistic that this will be a fun new series. There are definitely feelings of Bone, which is very cool.

    I love the creatures, especially when Kadyn joins a couple. The art is beautiful too. It feels a bit like Saga meets Lost in Space.

    Okay, so this is adorable. The first book is so cute and entertaining. All he wants to do is see some quarksharks! Is that too much to ask?! Come to think of it, I kinda wanna see some quarksharks, too. Bring on the quarksharks! Not sure how serious this is going to be going forward, but I'm pretty okay with the current level. Unfortunately, (for our characters) I think things are going to get *craaazy* pretty quickly... Or maybe quarkly. (* Okay, so this is adorable. The first book is so cute and entertaining.

    Lovely art, but not necessarily my kind of story. LOVE the creature design, though.

    A little far out there yet a good story so far. Beautiful art. I’m very intrigued to see where this goes.

    I don’t know. It’s cool and the art is beautiful but maybe I’ll just have to read another issue or two.
