Reviewer: Talia

While I do enjoy the story of Starfighter, I have to admit that it's the art that drew me into it and continues to be my favorite aspect. The use of minimal color and figure ground is smart, thoughtful, and very powerful. The imagery is often very heavy or stark, with a hard, metallic, techy quality to it that one would expect from a space adventure. The contrast between Cain and Abel (especially considering the origin of their names)is interesting, and their dynamic is strong and a definite driver behind the story. They are two very different extremes and while some have criticized them as being stereotypical or flat in regard to characterization, I feel that they are appropriate representations of two opposing forces (black/white, evil/good, whatever you want to see in it) that are inexplicably drawn to each other. While the attraction between the two is abrupt--perhaps a little too abrupt--, the progression of the story gradually reveals that there is something much deeper and complex in store for them. This is not a gratuitous smut story (though the sex scenes are sexy!), and it's obvious that what's to come is going to be riveting.

Reviewer: Brellie, deviantArt nerd

Starfighter is not exactly a romance--it has almost an "Ender's Game" feel to it, a sense that not everything is as it seems, with the characters or the world they inhabit. Coupled with space dogfighting and intense sexual scenes, this is an outstanding comic.
