ComiXology, Amazon’s premier digital comics service, dropped a surprise new series, the first issue of Stone Star, a 5-part sci-fi, action-adventure comic series by Jim Zub (Champions, Avengers: No Road Home, Rick & Morty vs Dungeons & Dragons) and Max Dunbar (Champions, Dungeons & Dragons). Stone Star issue #1 is digitally available to read now for members of Prime Reading, Kindle Unlimited, and comiXology Unlimited and is also available for sale on comiXology and Kindle for $2.99.
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!”
