Thanks to Mad Cave Studios for the review copy!
Right off the bat, BECSTAR has me intrigued. Only five pages in, and we already see a pretty violent attack on a secure compound, a blood-thirsty android on a mission, and a priceless treasure with the ability to grant foresight. The Clairvoyance Rod, as it is called, has a rather nasty side-effect of extreme paranoia for whoever holds onto it too long. After the rods original carrier, Furlough, is quickly defeated by the evil Lord Mordecai’s android, Ozgar, it ends up in the surprisingly able hands of young Paprika. Though scared and confused after narrowly escaping death-by-android, Paprika manages to track down the one person she has been told can help – Becstar. Becstar, a seemingly bored, aimless captain of the Restcal-08, strikes me as a Han Solo type, with her reckless, selfish attitude and her loyal (though admittedly less furry) firstmate Sally.
