Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School–Ask 26 artists to come up with a story that somehow relates to robots and space; what you get is Project: Telstar, a compendium of creative narratives that touch (however loosely) on those two topics. Some, like Vincent Stall's "A Wish Tonight," give an imperceptible nod to the subject matter–the only reference to either robots or space is Sputnik spurting across the sky as a man and his wife take his father to a nursing home in the quiet of night. On the other hand, "Long Slow Flight of the Ashbot" takes the challenge literally, consisting only of a robot floating in space toward the end of the universe. There are serious selections that tackle issues like relationships, war, and identity. "We Were Not Made for This World," for example, follows the existential musings of an escaped assembly-line robot as he trudges across the desert. Not all are so heavy: Scott Morse's "Southpaw" is a comical spread about a match between a tiger and a boxing droid. Most, if not all, of the stories are clever and well written. Their charm is enhanced by the three-tone coloring throughout the book: black, white, and metallic blue. Well-known artists are showcased as well as some newcomers to the industry. The art covers a variety of styles and is eye-catching. Due to the subject matter, Project: Telstar has appeal primarily to sci-fi fans, but the talent it contains will also draw comics aficionados across genres.–J. M. Poole, East Rochester Public Library, NY
