Editorial Reviews

Review

"From the handpainted cover to the top-notch lettering, everything about Galaxion is under Tara's control. While other sci-fi does little to dispel the genre's reputation for cold technobabble, Galaxion presents us with warm characters we can really care about." -- Mark Crilley, writer/artist of Akiko, May 1997

"I like this book. I like the way the characters interact and the way the story moves along. ... I just plain like it." -- Linda Medley, Castle Waiting, December 1997

"If you haven't yet sampled this Tara Jenkins blend of romance and science-fiction, you should, ... Definitely recommended." -- Tony Isabella, October 1997

"Jenkins' Galaxion is simply one of the best self-published titles by a newcomer I've ever seen. It's good science fiction adventure by a writer/artist with loads of potential." -- Long Island Voice, November 1998

Get ready to blast off to comic-book storytelling heaven!" -- Comic Attractions Magazine, May 1998

[5 stars] "It's not hard to see why this series is starting to get the buzz in the rest of the industry that it so richly deserves. Wonderful characterization that focusses on the story and the people in it with art that backs up the emotions the story brings out in its readers - how can you not love this series? Highly recommended." -- Small Press Feedback, Winter 97/98

From the Author

"As any author will tell you, there are stories that cry out to be told, that won't let up until you've put pen to paper and poured out your heart on the page. Galaxion is one of those. It is a story that has been with me since I was in grade school, and has stayed with me ever since. I'd always planned for it to be a novel-- the fact that it has since metamorphosed into a comic remains mindboggling even to me, but (as any author will tell you) stories have minds of their own. I'm just enjoying the ride!"

Format: Paperback
As a huge comic book and science fiction fan, I enjoyed Galaxion very much. It's fun, entertaining and exciting. The art is very high quality with great diseign concepts ( I espiecally loved the strange ship diseign of the Galaxion, which looks like a huge sea shell). I recomend it to comic fans in search of great small press books and Science fistion fans who enjoy the likes of Star Trek: Next Generation and Star wars.

Format: Paperback
Tara Tallan's new series is reminiscent of some of the best Manga for teens. An intriguing mystery surrounding the disappearance of Earth's first interstellar mission keeps the plot moving. The adventure is laced with humor and the characters are appealing. A fun read.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the artistic skills of the author as well as the characters depicted. The Star Trekian plot looked like a winner. The story development was going on just fine and then the book just ends. I don't know about you but a story that just quits after 150 pages without a resolution to any of the plot lines just doesn't work.
