Sneak Peek: Captain Stone Issue 5 by Christina McCormack and Liam Sharp

Captain Stone #5 - Cover

This title has had mixed response (both in its digital and print form), but Liam said last year that both he and Christina wanted it to start as a slow-burn mystery that the reader partakes in, offering clues and hints and intrigue as to how things might resolve…

“It’s a lot easier as an idea than it is to execute,” he acknowledged in an interview about this and Titan Comics other launch Madefire title, Mono on SlackJawPunks. “… Each character has a spin on the Cap, based on their unique experiences.

“It was like a puzzle, putting it all together. The historical references are all based on fact too, so it was important everything worked as a timeline – just in case anybody ever wanted to look up the Mexico Olympics, or the various earthquakes and volcanic eruptions we mentioned…”
