This is a marvelous piece of space opera. Humans are deemed somewhat primitive, irrational and untrustworthy in an alliance of universal species. The main (human) character, Caleb Swany, is the first homo sapiens to enter the Interworld Diplomatic Office. The first assignment deals with a conflict human mining colony and indigenous Javlod people. This is part 1 of what apparently will develop into a series, and suffers a bit from carrying the load of introducing things and setting the stage.

This is a great piece of European Sci-Fi comics. The art by Pellé borrows lightly from earlier masters, but on the whole the style is distinctive. Furthermore, the portrayal of a muddy mining colony benefits from excellent use of color. ( )
