Full disclosure, I freaking love this series! Something about the concept and Lee’s writing speak to my childhood! I’ve said it before, but this series is definitely a nostalgia trip for me.
All that aside, TOS picks right up where issue 2 left off and begins expanding the universe even more! We get to meet the Space Way Pirates Lee has been teasing for some time and begin to learn about the lives and worlds of mortals. Through the story we begin to see Tol’Asha form a more compassionate and maybe even “human” side.
The Pirates are a fun group and I can’t wait to see them in their own stories and see more interaction between them an Tol’Asha in TOS.
Issue 3 is another great installment, and you can tell this a passion project for Lee, it feels like he has as much fun writing these books as I do reading them! My one critique is that the lettering is a bit simple and could use some work. It’d be nice to see more attention paid to it in issue 4.
If you’re looking for a fun series that screams of 80’s-90’s nostalgia, Tales of the Stars is your series. Immortals, Stars, Dragons, Space Pirates… what more could you ask for?
