MAIN CATEGORY

This book is at least 30% off the print price.

A. Degen has taken the superhero myth and put it in a baroque blender; the result is the cerebral, sensuous, and uncanny Mighty Star and the Castle of the Cancatervater.

Equal parts Dalí and Astro Boy, Degen’s mostly silent narrative is both metaphysical and mighty.

Comics Grinder

•Comics review blog

Offbeat. Off–kilter. Dialed back to just the right frequency. When you expect conflict, you may end up with a muffled sedate response. Sex. Violence. Superheroes. Leave it to a cartoonist like Alex Degen to balance all that with such a wry and ironic sensibility.

“Degen’s ability to show characters overcoming oppressive philosophy may have been hindered by his non-dialogue method, but it was by no means maimed. Mighty Star remains a solid read, and it’s one I’ll return to.” – Joel W. Vaughan
