So, so great. I wish it was longer. Grabbed me from the first page. Diverse cast, thoroughly imagined world building, so much information shared in a minimalist way. Loved it. ( )

A neat little story about an inspector set out to investigate objects found within Europa's oceans. But then, I do tend to like Ellis' space stories. ( )

Cool story and good artwork, though a little choppy at times. A fun read. ( )

I'm not sure why I even wanted to read this. I spotted it at the end of an Ex Machina volume. I'm glad I did read it. It's tightly written; and has strong art work. I'm disappointed that there's only one 6-issue volume. I want to know more about Nathan Kane. I think I may have liked this mostly because it pokes fun at Microsoft and Windows. ( )

The messages of the book seem to be that exploration is sexy, computer company monopolies are insanely evil, and guns are very bad but necessary to stop bad guys. The last page tosses in a nod to the idea that we’re not prisoners of our heritage, but it’s all undercut by the way the big guns save the day by blowing up all the problems.
