Writer and reviewer Robert Sodaro has reviewed Five Star Comics #1 on a website called The Examiner. Mr. Sodaro's title is "Comic Book Examiner," and you could fairly say that he has examined Five Star Comics in depth. Among his comments:
If you are looking for a modern-day comic that delivers a Golden Age feeling, then you’ll just need to get your hands on . . . 5 Star Comics. In a comicbook world populated by mainstream sameness and Indie Wannabes, 5 Star Comics is a delightful breath of fresh air. . . .
Each of the five stories evokes a feeling of classic comics that this reviewer hasn’t had in years. Everything from the style of art to the storytelling itself evokes such an amazing feel that you wonder why other creators cannot successfully emulate this style and return to simply creating good comics. . . .
All throughout the comic, the reader is treated to the pure delights of rapidly-told tales that hit the ground running and don’t waste a single panel or line of dialogue. Each story has something to say and does it in a fashion that makes the reading of it quite enjoyable indeed. So, if you are looking for a good read, then you’ll want to check out . . . 5 Star Comics, you’ll be glad you did (we certainly were).
That sounds like a comic book we would like to read! In any case, you can read Mr. Sodaro's review in its entirety by clicking here.
