This is easily one of my favorite comics. I have been reading it online since the first page, and can't tell you how thrilled I was when it came into print. The writing is energetic, and keeps you wanting more. Every page feels like a cliffhanger, without going over the top or becoming heavy-handed. The action sequences are beautifully orchestrated, as well as the... hmm... more intimate scenes. The rhythm between panels is smooth, pauses in all the right places, keeping you on your toes when it needs to. And unlike a lot of webcomics, this one is actually touched with splashes of color, fully shaded (quite frankly she pulls off some of the best lighting I've ever seen in, or out of comics) with extreme attention to details in the background. heh Not that many people will care, but I thought even the typography was great, too. All in all, if you don't buy it for a fantastic si-fi yaoi read, then buy it for the magnificent art.

Starfighter is wonderfully overwhelming. Hamletmachine works in a cold, monochrome world, electrified with neon flashes that power the tension of uncertainty and distance Abel finds himself suddenly trapped inside; the creator is an expert in creating realistic, dangerous relationships. To say nothing of her spot-on anatomy, hamletmachine has the ability to develop a dynamic between her main characters at once alluring and frightening, setting her audience (as all great artists do) effectively in her protagonist's shoes and pacing their trust of Cain as the story unfolds. Although the first chapter may seem lighter on plot than the first few pages might lead one to believe, the end ties it up neatly and eases any concerns about timing or otherwise (one of which might be that in such a character-driven series that the action scenes would suffer but rest assured they're clearer and more exciting than most published manga). Additionally, the sex scenes don't sacrifice eroticism for realism; the two elements are blended wonderfully (they're definitely my favorite out of any manga I've read). I can't praise this series enough. Hamletmachine is extraordinarily gifted both as an author and an artist and I hope everyone who has a chance to read Starfighter does. I promise you won't be disappointed.
