The Mirror Reveals More Than Beauty in “STAR BRIGHT” – New storybook from Jonathan Luna in November

  STAR BRIGHT AND THE LOOKING GLASS is Jonathan Luna‘s first solo creator-owned work after wrapping up THE SWORD (with brother Joshua Luna). In STAR BRIGHT, to be published in November by Image Comics, Luna departs from his superhero and science fiction comics, and works in the dreamy, fantasy-tinged aesthetic of his fine artwork to create a tale of beauty, vanity, and friendship., “After the conclusion of The Sword, I took a two-year sabbatical, but I was always creating,” said Luna of his break from comics. “I played with photography and film, and I learned how to paint with oil, acrylic, and watercolor. I finally decided I wanted to do a fairy-tale picture book.” The end result was STAR BRIGHT AND THE LOOKING GLASS, which tells the story of a wild young woman who discovers her own beauty when she finds a mirror in her forest home. The awakening of Star Bright’s consciousness of her own loveliness also opens her heart to vanity. But when a wicked sorceress steals Star Bright’s beauty Star Bright will learn from her woodland animal friends what the true virtues in life are. “Everything I’m doing with Star Bright and the Looking Glass is so different from what I’m used to. It’s my first time writing alone, and prose for that matter,” said Luna.  “I can’t really pinpoint what led me to do a fairy-tale picture book. There’s definitely been a certain kind of imagery in my head that I’ve been dying to put on paper. I’ve been into pop surrealism…
