Mystery and adventure!
A reader of ours who had just finished “Star Power & the Ninth Wormhole” told us that he felt the pace of that story was very fast. Not rushed, but fast. We told him that it was a conscious decision on our part to make that story as fast and furious as possible, akin to the pace of the original Star Wars. We were just beginning “Star Power & the Search for Black Hole Bill” at the time, and told him that that story would be much slower paced, character driven, and somewhat somber at times, akin to The Empire Strikes Back. Now that we’re gearing up to begin “Star Power & the Mystery of the Zel Gux Dynasty,” we’re taking what we learned from both previous stories: we’re picking up the pace and keeping things very character driven, but we promise there won’t be any space teddy bears akin to The Return of the Jedi.
It was nice to slow thing down for the majority of “The Search for Black Hole Bill,” but Garth and I are eager to kick the adventure back into high gear. While we’re going to keep the spotlight firmly on our characters, this story is also a great opportunity for us to explore the lore of the galaxy outside of the between-Issue fillers.
“The Ninth Wormhole” and “The Search for Black Hole Bill” were character-driven action stories. This is going to be our first adventure tale, and we couldn’t be more excited. We won’t skimp on the character spotlights, either.
