Review: Brass Sun – The Wheel of Worlds


A large, gigantic mechanical solar system is dying. The brass sun that gives life to the dozens of worlds has started to slow, freezing the outer worlds and killing off the inhabitants.

On one such world, known as Hind Leg, a young girl named Wren is given part of the secret of the lost key that has the power to restart the sun again. Charged with travelling across the various worlds to pick up other parts of the key which was broken up after The Great War, this unlikely heroine alone possesses the power to save the galaxy from extinction!

From the creative team behind New Deadwardians, Ian Edginton (Stickleback, Ampney Crucis Investigates) and I.N.J. Culbard (The Picture of Dorian Gray, Deadbeats) Brass Sun is a unique fantasy adventure, executed with panache.

When I originally read this series in 2000AD I thought “Here is something special” and with the release of this collection, now all of you can see it too.

The first thing that see is in the art, bright, yet dark, details, yet sparse – it pops of the page and drills into your brain. From the open scenes to the close up work, you really are getting something unique.

And the story!

Ah! World building is one thing, but here we not only get the development of a world but a creation story, mythology and rivalries. The characters are well rounded – each one has their own motivations and some excellent character arcs.

Brass Sun was a series that I looked forward to week after week. Now you can see why!
