You have to get this if you love Alvin and/or Ender. This graphic novel is a great blend of alternate past and future. It is also the first time I have seen such a beautiful rendition of native americans for just a comic book.
Alvin's story is more amusing to see it from another perspective. You need this perspective to appreciate how simple, yet full of foreshadow, the first two Alvin books were. The story shows great care where racial lines are between the whites and reds, yet somehow Alvin trusts.
Ender's story is also an outsider's view of the Ender's universe with the first colony. There is a great potential story line of discovering more about the "bugs" that Ender is so intimate with.
