It's rare that I leave a review but this book is definitely worth it. It's not just for sci-fi fans. The book perfectly blends different genres and all with rich and diverse characters (and I mean REALLY diverse) in an equally rich and diverse universe. Even better that the art is fantastic and the writing is realistic in dialogue. Looking for adventure and romance and awesome plots and even more awesome characters? This is for you. You won't be disappointed and will definitely want to keep reading.

This is a story like so many and yet unlike anything you have heard of before. It is about love, strength, action, revenge, murder, it has bounty hunters called 'freelancers', ghosts, aliens of all types, and so much more. This is the story of Hazel and it will keep you reading and wanting more.

This comic book series is on par with game of thrones and that makes me wish for a TV series adaption of it. First off this series is not for kids as there is a lot of gory violence, sexual content, graphic nudity, and strong language and some drug use. However it has a lot of interesting and unforgettable characters. Its game of thrones like plot makes the series unpredictable as you are not going to know who is going to die and there is little to no foreshadowing on who is going to die and how it is going to come. Some unforgettable characters includes a robot with a tv screen for a head and dresses in colonial era clothes as well as a very adorable and naive alien who looks a lot like a baby harp seal named Ghus. I think Ghus is going to steal a lot of the show in this series because of his cuteness and lovability. The series two protagonists, Alana and Marko also have a lot to fight for as they try to struggle through power hungry villains, hazardous ordeals of nature, racism, war, temptation, and for Marko a lot of violence. I recommend this series for any sci fi fan who is 18 or older because this comic is not for kids and teens
