Reviewer: LadyDorian, avid yaoi fan and eternally youthful dreamer

In the darkest recesses of space, Earthians wage war against an unnamed enemy. Two very different classes of men—Fighters and Navigators—must work as teams to achieve victory. It sounds pretty straightforward, yet things are far from simple. Abel, a young Navigator, realizes how dangerous life on base can be when he is paired with the sadistic Cain, a Fighter with a mysterious past. Now, Abel finds himself drawn into Cain’s world—a reality bursting with intrigue, violence and lust. From the very start, STARFIGHTER draws you in with a suspenseful, well-conceived plot and uniquely beautiful artwork that (to traditional manga fans) may appear scratchy at first, but quickly evolves into a true masterpiece. Deep-space battles come to life; reds and blues crackle and sizzle against gray-toned backgrounds. Hamlet Machine’s manipulation of color is simply stunning, and the sex scenes are both realistic and highly explicit (yes, man parts look like real, detailed man parts). But perhaps one of the best qualities of the artist’s work is her skill at drawing facial expressions. Eyes speak volumes, and passion shines bright as day: Hamlet Machine masterfully projects a degree of emotion that most mangaka can only convey through the use of over-exaggerated blush lines and buckets of sweat drops. The characters themselves are unique and worth following (as any fan can tell you, Abel is not your typical uke). And though the comic can be read online (at starfightercomic.com), the print copy of the book contains some steamy artwork that can’t be found anywhere else (not to mention it’s got that fresh, new peni—I mean—new book smell). Bottom line: STARFIGHTER is a must-read and an integral part of any yaoi/sci-fi/manga fan’s collection. Please buy a copy and enjoy it a thousand times over!

Reviewer: Mallory

A really interesting story with some very interesting characters(with all his outrageous, I can't help but love Cain), not to mention all the hot sex they have along the way. I really cannot wait to see where the relationship between these characters takes us. As for the art, it's refreshingly different and original, but very precise in anatomy and posture. It may seem a little messy at times, but it just adds to the atmosphere of the story. Overall, I absolutely love this book and I can't wait for chapter two!
