The comic gets released on March 26. So when the 26 comes you can buy it here!
Metabarons Genesis: Castaka starts off with Baron Berard of Castaka fighting his daughter's (Edna) husband for succession. Also, the beginning of Castaka take places between the pages 22-26 of The Metabarons and Das Pastoras does an amazing job taking those pages and re-imagines them into his own vision.
|Das Pastoras is amazing with facial expressions. He's able to portray a range of|
emotions through his characters' face.
Das Pastoras's artwork just shines throughout this comic. As you can see from the images above, he does an amazing job combining Richard Corben and Moebius into his own vision. Das Pastora's use of watercolors and his mastery of the anatomy brings the visuals and visual storytelling to another level in Metabarons Genesis: Castaka.
One problem I did have with Das Pastoras's art is the way he textures his colors. There are times where I felt the characters were colored in a way that they came off as clay figures than actual people and it threw off the rest of the coloring feeling of the comic. This is an artistic choice of Das Pastoras and a choice I really don't like but it doesn't lessen the comic.
Metabarons Genesis: Castaka brings me back to the way day I first read The Metabarons. I get transported away into a universe that's full of tragedies and hope, a universe and bloodline so fully realized, vast, and complex that with every re-reading I keep finding new things to discover and changes the way I see how comics can be done.
