Check out the Review of Rogue Sun #15 Here!

The Writing:

The storytelling in this issue is top-notch. The introduction of characters like Killswitch and Charon adds depth and intrigue to the narrative, leaving readers eager for more of their backgrounds. Parrott masterfully weaves the backstories of various characters, maintaining a perfect balance of action and character development, making it impossible to put the book down.

The Art, Colors and Design:

The artwork and colors are a visual feast for the eyes. All of the action sequences in this issue are rendered with breathtaking detail and energy. The collaborative efforts of artists Abel and Marco Renna create seamless transitions between scenes, enhancing the overall flow of the story. The intricate details within the sun stone provide a glimpse into the series’ rich history and sets the stage for what’s to come. 

The distinction in color palettes between the land of the living and the sun stone is a clever choice, grounding readers and aiding in the story’s clarity. The brighter colors in the living world intensify the action sequences, effectively conveying the chaos that unfolds. In contrast, the lighter color palette in the sun stone provides a sense of reflection and discovery, adding depth to the narrative.

The character designs in this issue are nothing short of exceptional. They provide readers with a deeper insight into the rogues and unveil transformed versions of familiar characters, contributing significantly to the overall cohesiveness of the universe.

The Letters:

Becca Carey’s use of distinct speech balloon designs is a clever touch. It allows readers to easily follow character tones, even when characters are off-panel. The design for Lady Calamity, in particular, stands out, with its whimsical and enigmatic demonic nature.

Final Thoughts:

Rogue Sun #16 is a non-stop thrill ride, filled with unexpected twists and turns that keep readers at the edge of their seats. This issue serves as a perfect setup for the impending all-out battle, leaving fans eagerly anticipating the next installment.
