The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of THE ZOOHUNTERS #1 from Aspen Comics. Peter Steigerwald writes and draws.

Ty has been sick for months, in quarantine for the plague that has decimated his people. But today he gets out, greeted by his father and the news about his mother. With no choice but to learn his father’s trade, Ty and his father begin to get to know each other again, and Ty starts learning about the alien species that his father hunts and traps for a living.

This is a touching story about family and about growing up, and it adds an interesting layer to what could easily have been just another adventure story. Ty and Abros are much deeper characters and much more sympathetic now, and that’s a good move for the overall story. The art is beautiful, too; it’s imaginative and colorful, which are helpful with alien races and landscapes.

This is a book with a lot of emotion in it, and it will be cool to see Ty grow up and get to know his father. And we’ll also get our share of cool sci-fi along the way. Get this one on your pull list.

THE ZOOHUNTERS #1 is available now at your FLCS or at aspencomics.com.
