Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“. . . there is a distinct lack of chores in space, which makes for a free-wheeling ride peppered with as much grisly monster-filleting action and bodily fluid humor as a young reader could want.”—Booklist

“With nonstop action, humor geared to multiple levels of cultural awareness and the promise of more episodes to come, even readers stubbornly resisting the trendy format’s lure with find that, as Supermuscleman sneers shortly before gorily blasting his own foot, ‘Resistance is futile.’”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“Punky heroes, interplanetary action and unpredictable bouts of silliness characterize these hyperbolic color comics. . . . the pirate humor and gothic panels—abundant with Jolly Rogers, drippy slime and creepy-crawly creatures—provide surprises in every space vignette.”—Publishers Weekly
