Synopsis: Starfinder: Angels Of The Drift, five down-on-their-luck mercenaries sign on to help a robotic avatar of the hyperspace dimension bring starship technology to a previously uncontacted planet. But with sinister forces bent on exploiting the new world, it’ll take all the heroes’ guns, wits, and magic to make it off their space station alive…
Set inside the Tabletop RPG Universe of the Starfinder Roleplaying Game. This story focuses on Captain Navasi and her crew of mercenaries who get approached by Rute’bahja a Spectre and a Native of the Drift. He is on a mission to inform a previously uncontacted world about faster-than-light travel. The problem is. Navasi is not the first person that Rute’bahja has approached about this mission, which fast becomes a problem for Navasi and her crew as they battle to get off the space station in order to follow through on their mission.
The story includes a colorful group of characters and has a fun blend of futuristic technology with magic. One of Navasi’s crew mates is an elf that can see the future but is unfortunately never around when Navasi has a bet at the races.
The art throughout this book works really well. So well that it almost felt like I was reading an expensive animated movie.
Having absolutely no knowledge of the Starfinder RPG Game. I can’t wait to see where this story goes and learn more about these characters.
This first issue is very much set up. But I am hoping that it is set up for a regular comic book adaptation of the game’s universe. So hopefully this is a success for the folks at Dynamite.
