*Starred Review* Vaughan, writer of the hugely successful Y: The Last Man, isn’t one to think small. In this opener to his ambitious new series, bits of sf space opera and classic fantasy mesh in setting a sprawling stage for an intensely personal story of two lovers, cleverly narrated by their newborn daughter. Though recently soldiers from opposite sides of a massive intergalactic war, moth-winged Alana and ram-horned Marko simply want peace and anonymity to raise their daughter (an abomination to the powers that be) away from conflict and hatred. Vaughan’s whip-snap dialogue is as smart, cutting, and well timed as ever, and his characters are both familiar enough to acclimate easily to and deep enough to stay interested in as their relationships bend, break, and mend. While Vaughan will be the star power that attracts readers, do-it-all artist Staples is going to be the one who really wows them. Her character designs dish out some of the best aliens around, the immersive world-crafting is lushly detailed and deeply thought through, and the spacious layouts keep the focus squarely on the personal element, despite the chaotic cosmos they inhabit. Add another winner to Vaughan’s stable of consistently epic, fresh, and endearing stories. --Ian Chipman

On the other hand, let me warn Amazon customers. Amazon ships this book in its infamous cardboard folders with no protection whatsoever. And it’s quite a thick book that barely fits in the aforementioned cardboard folder, so every hit the box takes during the trip to your house is going to be absorbed by the book.
Every single corner of the book’s cover and back cover, except for one, was dented and even coming apart. A real shame. I repeat, Amazon ships this book with no protection whatsoever, so be wary, especially if you do not reside in the US.
- I don't read graphic novels often and picked this one up because it was highly recommended. I have to say it did not disappoint. The characters are full of life and depth. I loved Alana because she is a strong female character and fighting for the one thing she loves the most... her family. What I liked the most is that she is a realistic character and not sugar coated. She has flaws like jealousy and anger but a loyal partner and loving mother. Marko is yin to Alana's yang. He is trying to practice a more peaceful stance and has a calmer personality. In no means is he weak but his strength comes from knowing his abilities and what he wants in life.
- The plot is intense and I mean INTENSE. There really is not a dull moment in this graphic novel and reminds me of the movie Love Actually. I know i know they have nothing to do with each other but the way they are set up are similar. there are many characters involved and there is an intricate web that connects all of them. This may not be apparent now but i have a feeling soon the novel will start tying them together and I cant wait.
- I loved the illustrations in this graphic novel. They made me feel as if these places existed and made me want to travel the universe looking for them.
- As I stated before the plot is INTENSE. I have to say it's a good and bad thing. I liked the depth and complicatedness because it made me think. Yet sometimes it was a little over whelming trying to keep track of everything. If I didn't keep a book journal I don't think I would have been able to keep everything in order. I hope that the characters will all meet in a central pace or event and not have stray tangents that dont really make the story better.
