I really wanted to like this but I just didn't. Too pulpy? Too masculine? Too many words? I don't know, but alas, it was not everything I wanted it to be. ( )

It's the story that saved this one. The story is really good, the humour is magnificent & the characters are so interesting. The graphics, however, because computer-based, are not to my liking. There are good things about the graphics, & I think they would have been terrific if hand-drawn. It's worth contuining simply because I love the story, though. The extras in the back of this one were awesome, & some of them appear to be good, real illustrations. I really like this series. Super-inspiration for becoming a librarian! Grad school, here I come!

Yay! a graphic novel for bookworms! it's hilarious and full of scholarly refs and jokes. its only fault (at least in perfect bound book form) is the print is way too small for the reading glasses-dependent crowd (which would be a big demographic for this book...) ( )

A decent romp around with a intergalactic librarian adventurer, although I did feel like his other comic Nil was a lot better. ( )
