Featured in Heavy metal Magazine #306, we have an exclusive first look at the second chapter of Steve Orlando and Ivan Shavrin’s Starward! With a new chapter every two months, Starward will be collected into an expanded, stand-alone format, as an Elements comic, by the end of 2021.
Issue #306 will feature debut stories by Ryan K. Lindsay and Sebastián Píriz’s Black Beacon sci-fi series, as well as new chapters of Ron Marz’s historical horror story SWAMP GOD, Matthew Medney’s sci-fi tale DARK WING, Brendan Columbus’ horror series SAVAGE CIRCUS, plus an in-depth interview between Heavy Metal’s Joshua Sky and Kevin Smith about his venture into NFTs.
Without further ado, check out the Starwars chapter 2 preview below.
Orlando’s series is Heavy Metal’s first YA story and follows college student and summer lifeguard Stephanie Cohen, who realizes she’s a reincarnated cosmic warrior who must defend reality from chaos as one of seven Starward Sisters. In Chapter 2, Stephanie learns about her warrior self and her quest to find her sisters so they can fight the demon Kaos and protect the universe from destruction. Steve Orlando weaves in humor and fun into this epic YA tale, beautifully illustrated by Ivan Shavrin.
