Star Cross Comics brings is ‘The Relentless Tin Soldier,’ it is written by Nicholas Greer with art by Sika Murti and colors by Walter Pereyra. It also features a back cover by Graham Nolan.
In the city of Minneapolis, Benjamin Pearson is a rookie cop learning the beat with his training officer Sergeant Robinson. Ben is idealistic and thinks he can take on the corruption of the city. Soon, he is targeted by crime boss Marco Colletta who makes a call to the Toy Maker, a psychopathic engineer. With these troubles, Ben soon realizes that he will have to be more than a police officer, he will have to become a hero.
To begin with, the artwork had this very cool retro feel to it that made it stand out. I especially enjoyed the rendering of Ben as the Tin Soldier. They did a good job with his illustration and the overall design was a cut above. Both covers, the one by Billy Tucci and the one by Shelby Robertson, were excellent.
The comic book definitely gave me vibes from the 90s, focused on dynamic storytelling and character development. While Ben is idealistic, you feel like you can root for him. The villains did not have much play, but I am excited to see how they are going to continue the story further.
The comic was funded through a successful crowdfunding campaign that I supported.
