Full review on Starburst.
From UK-based small press publisher Accent, this anthology does exactly what it says on the tin – it’s a collection of five short tales, or moments, all with a classic adventure story feel.
It’s a nice variety of settings, pleasantly depicted in creator Colin Mathieson’s uncomplicated art style, and the two colourists do a good job of giving each tale a distinct atmosphere. The adventure story tone of the comics can seem old-fashioned, the Zulu-esque Day of the Dead Moon in particular, and the stories tend to end exactly how you’d expect from their set-ups. It’s a style that will put off some readers but charm others. All the stories are action-packed enough for the collection to rattle along at a quick pace,though, so you won’t get bored and will easily get through the whole thing over a lunch break.
