    Craig and Finestone layer the foundation of their expanding universe with an engaging issue. The introduction of more rogues proves dangerous through solid writing and strong visuals. This series has such a vintage vibe to it that if you’re into superheroes, this should be on your radar for New Comic Book Day.

    Drew Craig is the artist, writer, and creator of The Savage Strength of Star Storm. I would definitely recommend this comic. The story is a fun read for everyone.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    The Savage Strength of StarStorm #3 presents an ambitious premise that sets the stage for an action-packed battle between Grant Garrison and The Tiger Claw Clan. The comic’s well-planned plot and extensive worldbuilding lay a solid foundation, reflecting Drew Craig’s evident passion for the story. But the below average dialogue and one-dimensional characters hinder the reading experience. The art, while showing glimpses of potential, is inconsistent and is unsuccessful in fully capturing the essence of the story. As Drew Craig’s debut work in the industry, there is room for growth and I believe he does have the potential to grow into a much more competent writer and artist.

    The Savage Strength of Starstorm #3 is a mixed bag of fun and flatness. When Craig is focused on building out his characters, the book is wondrous. When that crosses paths with the larger epic building silently in the background, the book’s lack of balance can feel omnipresent and diminishing.

    There’s SUCH a strange and distinct reality being brought to the page by Craig. It has a language and reality all its own that doesn’t quite feel like anything else. The style is really cool in places, but the story is SO derivative of so many different elements in the superhero genre that it’s kind of difficult to walk away from the substance of the story with any kind of impression at all. Given enough issues, it would be interesting to see where Craig is taking the story, but at the outset, it’s just kind of a weird visual exercise.

    The second spread in The Savage Strength of Starstorm #3 is impressive, featuring Starstorm in a battle against an oversized T-Rex with an engaging layout and detailed dinosaur that’s bound to astonish readers. Those two pages are about all readers need to lay their eyes on in another issue filled with odd tangents and more than a dozen new characters that do little to build upon what preceded them. Tiger Clan, a team of seven interchangeable, interstellar bounty hunters, serve as the new antagonists for this issue and beyond some “shocking” actions at the end never earn the space they consume on the page. With dull designs and a standoff that provides almost no novelty, they make for a disappointing departure from the T-Rex, which somehow also possessed more personality. Stack another lackluster roster of Justice League knockoffs at the end of the issue, and it’s apparent that The Savage Strength of Starstorm is dedicated to throwing half-baked ideas against the wall and largely ignoring its own artistic merits.
