REVIEW: 

An epic beginning to a space opera graphic novel series jam packed with absolutely everything. Kicking everything off with a birth this graphic novel takes it from 0 to 100 in less than 3 seconds flat. This book entrances  readers with stunning graphics and a plot that grips you. This is a no holds barred gore fest with blood, guts, and nudity.

There is something for absolutely everyone within these pages. At the heart of a novel is a young family trying to stay alive in an interplanetary war. Marko and Alana are a pair of love struck deserters from opposite sides of an interplanetary way. They must fight to keep their little family alive in this time of bloodshed. Narrated by the infant in the future looking back at her history. This is a loving and caring family that has its quirks but ultimately is the heart of the novel.

This family are on the run from a wide variety of characters who want them dead for various reasons. Some of these characters and their motivations are revealed in this work increasing the scope of this world. Outstanding illustrations coupled with a compelling plot blend to make this an unforgettable book.

Tackling topics such as slavery, war, child slavery, the sex trade and more seamlessly, this is an outstanding start to what is sure to be a phenomenal series. Gripping in such a way that you would swear you were watching it on the big screen.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
