Again, this is a fast-paced adventure story, but its true appeal is in its world-building. There is something new and interesting about the habitat revealed on pretty much every page, and while certain elements of the story are well-worn tropes, Roy finds ways to make them seem fresh and vital to the story. His art, as expected, is sensational. My only complaint is that the story is somewhat short, but even so, it's a masterpiece. I hope Roy revisits this world someday.
There is still plenty of working hi-tech left however: 3D printers, mech-robots, and the like. The problem is what happens when something no longer works because its mechanic died, or because there are few ways to fix something that might otherwise be in perfect working order save for one little part. Not to mention that pesky food & water situation. Feels very much like TWD in that way, but in no way as a rip-off. Some of the other TWD similarities are plot spoilers, so I won't go into them here. The various factions start to fight and/or cooperate over dwindling resources and knowledge bases. Security vs. Engineering vs. Medical, etc.
Great, detailed art, just a little cartoony but still based more in realism. If you like Prophet Volume 4: Joining (Prophet Tp), also by Roy Simon, you'll also like this. Art style that comes across a bit like European comics with a little Richard Corben and a pinch of Tim Truman.
You'll read this in one sitting and wonder if they've already started filming the movie.
Giving it 4 stars because it was a gift for my boyfriend and although he enjoyed, he didn't go too wild over it.
