I think im in the minority because this was just eh for me. I liked the concept, but there were way too many swear words for my liking. I dont think i will continue with the series. ( )

Everyone said it was good. And everyone was not wrong. A star-crossed eomance. Spaceships. Weird alien life. Ghosts. Cool tech. It was high stakes and colorful and had the right amount of humor. And I still got a feel for the characters even though all that other stuff was going on. I will definitely be picking up the next volume. I want to know what happens to all the crazy eople I'm now so invested in. Even if some of them have wings or TVs for heads. ( )

The first chapter had me hooked. What follows didn't disappoint, and the artwork was delightful throughout. ( )

I absolutely loved this graphic novel. I've had it on my TBR pile forever and wish I had gotten around to reading it sooner. There is a lot of action, some great characters, a huge world, and tons of creativity. I was quickly completely drawn into the story and can't wait to read more.

This is definitely an adults only graphic novel; there is quite a bit of sex and violence which is depicted in detail. There is also a lot of humor and snark in here which I really enjoyed.

As mentioned this is absolutely action-packed; there are tons of gun fights and space battles. However, there are also a lot of tender scenes and adventuring throughout.

The story bounces between a few different viewpoints; that of the two star-crossed lovers with their new baby, that of a prince tasked with hunting them down, and that of a bounty hunter who takes a job hunting them down. Even with all these characters and viewpoints the story never gets confusing; it’s easy to follow and weaves together nicely.

The illustration is very well done; again it was easy to follow and also nicely detailed. I loved the full color throughout and really enjoyed the artwork in general.

I was surprised how quickly I was drawn into the story and how engaging I found all the different characters. At times the story leaves you nearly breathless with the intensity and when I reached the end I wanted more!

One of the best parts is how there is a ton of snarky humor in here; so despite the intensity there is still some light-hearted fun to everything.

Overall this was a phenomenal graphic novel and I can’t wait to see what volume 2 holds. I would recommend to those who like sci-fi graphic novels; actually I would recommend to everyone...I really really liked this one! ( )

I bought and read the first two issues when they first came out and somehow never got back to this series. I did buy the trade though and am so happy I finally read it! ( )

After us locals die, we get to live on as "spiritual defenders of Cleave."
But clearly, that's a suck-ass evolutionary plan, since your two armies had no problem wiping our people off the map.
