A plausible science fiction story backed by real science is bolstered by a smart team that obviously knows its comics. I would say this graphic novel would be accessible to anyone with a 8th grade reading level and interesting for folks of all ages. The reason I jump to the K-12 metric is that I can't imagine a better companion piece for a middle-school science curriculum. Getting kids interested in science is a huge challenge here in the states and this graphic novel does it with style. Banish your expectations about "educational young adult fiction" with its unfortunate reputation for ham-handedness and forced explication of educational material. The creators know how to package great educational content in an emotionally mature, action-packed and entirely non-patronizing fashion.

Its a great gift for family members and friends and can start great conversations about science, technology and the current state of our society's ambitions.

Nobody had written a review for this graphic novel so I wanted to try and give it a boost.

I picked this up because I was interested to check out "hard" (more realistic) sci-fi, and learn about Venus.

I liked the story a lot. It throws you into a believable prediction of our future and makes sense. It presents its points in an exciting way and you care about the characters and what happens to them.

If it succeeds you will finish reading it and then get on Wikipedia to learn more about Venus! Looking forward to more output from this creative team.

I bought this after getting references from kickstarter and seeing the great reviews.

waste of money.

i give a lot of importance to the art in graphic novels. if i wanted to read dialogues, i would buy a novel. the so-so story could have been so much better if it was clearly illustrated. Pictures should convey what is happening.. i dont want to "read" sound effects superimposed on dialogue boxes superimposed on the scence. Thats plain awful.

authors / artists of the book : if you want some good references for clear and precise drawing, please refer to herge.
