This issue covers the childhood of slave boy Thorby, starting with his arrival on a planet far across the galaxy from Earth. Baslim the crippled beggar buys Thorby in a slave auction, provides him food, shelter, and a superior education, and ultimately freedom. But Baslim inadvertently involves the boy in his own interstellar intrigue, in which the beggar is arrested, leaving Thorby in the hands of a space captain . . . to be continued . . . and I can't wait for the next issue, even though I've read the novel before.
If your only exposure to Heinlein is from the film Starship Troopers, don't expect to find as much violence here, though you won't be disappointed in any other respects; the story is very engaging. More than anything in Starship Troopers, Thorby's character reminds me of young Anakin Skywalker as a slave on Tatooine in The Phantom Menace. Likewise if your only exposure to Heinlein is his best-selling Stranger In A Strange Land or later adult novels like Friday, this is not an "adult" graphic novel, but an excellent one.
As far as I can tell, having read the book over a year ago, it's a faithful enough adaptation. The art is good, the writing good, the story clear. The images depict the Sargon space port very much as I had pictured it when reading the book. The "flavor" is just right.
