Shooting Star Comics Anthology

Shooting Star doesn’t stick to a single genre in its anthologies. In fact, each one crams in about as many different genres and art styles as is possible in comics. Naturally, the result, as is the case with most anthologies, is a collection of hits and misses. When this is on target, the stories are good and deserve their own series (and several have graduated). When it misses, it raises the question: With all the excellent comics writers and artists out of work, why did the editors choose these guys? Shooting Star would be well served by raising its standards.

One of the best of the bunch is “Aym Geronimo and the Postmodern Pioneers” by writer J. Morgan Neal and artist Todd Fox. It’s an origin of sorts for the mystical Native American hero in the title. Aym, a Native American woman who lives in the outside world, has joined her brother Wind in a “vision quest.” While there, she sees an ancestor appear before her. A series starring Aym would be worth picking up, since this short story ends before it’s ready.
