Title: Solar Flare # 1 Publisher: Scout Comics Writer: James Haick Illustrator: Branko Jovanovic Colorist: Song Ye Price: $ 3.99 US Rating: 2 out of 5 stars Websites: www.scoutcomics.com Comments: The backgrounds are drawn good with some detail. The people though are not focused enough. Life is just going on while we keep getting a count down and a picture of the earth. The buildup to the solar flare does not build up any suspense. You know it is coming but so what. There is no frightening moments. No anticipation. There needed to be a lot more to this story. The people as well you learn very little about. This could be a thrilling exciting story. Maybe in future issues once the story and characters are gotten into more it will be but it is not here.
Title: Solar Flare # 2 Publisher: Scout Comics Writer/Creator: James Haick Artist: Branko Jovanovic Colorist: Song Ye Letters/Design: Andworld Designs Price: $ 3.99 US Rating: 3 out of 5 stars Website: www.scoutcomics.com Comments: A guy wakes up to a bright sunny day while its still early morning. The heat and other aspects from the solar flare is causing all kinds of problems. No one that we see though has any clue as to what is going on. We do start to get to know a few of the character. Jake being the main one he is just an ordinary guy who also has no idea what is going on. The art is done with a grey, green wash. It is to dark making it hard to see details in it. Jake's mother is illustrated fairly good to show she is just an ordinary mother who cares about her son. Jake is just worried about his family and friends. This issue ends on a cliffhanger that will have you coming back.
