Shaper Issue 1 Day Of Release Review with Spoilers
This is a good debut issue for this newest entry in the space opera area of science fiction. We are given a sense of mystery and a sense of history for both the characters and their universe. The only problems within this issue are the school hallway's design, which looks too modern and realistic, and the amount of crosshatching used. An example of the crosshatching occurs on the last story page where it is used to create shadows, instead of relying on the colorist. Since this is the first issue of what the author says/hopes is a "Space Opera" I am letting slide the lack of real character development and supporting cast.
I recommend this issue for those looking for a simple enjoyable start to a new series.
