Overview

  • A new deluxe hardcover edition of the epic graphic novel that iFanboy gave
    Five Stars, urging readers to "run out and grab it...because we're talking about the post apocalyse and all the masterful world-building provided by the best stories in the genre." MTV Splashpage praised it as a "timeless tale that would sit quite comfortably alongside the greatest works of science fiction and fantasy." Forces of Geek called the book "not only gorgeous, but creatively pushes the boundaries of the printed page" while Publishers Weekly lauded Inaki
    Miranda and Eva de la Cruz's "standout" artwork and writers Michael Geszel and
    Peter Spinetta for "constructing a believable world that has been run by teenagers for generations."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Creating a cinematic spectacle of a graphic novel, artist Miranda and colorist de la Cruz combine for impressive wide-screen vistas in this story of an apocalyptic future where mankind has been condemned to live no longer than 21 years. The story follows Sundog, a member of the Sky Shadow tribe located in the ruins of what was once the Pacific Northwest. After an artificially engineered virus drastically reduced human lifespan centuries ago, the world of Sundog and the rest of his tribe has been reduced to hunting and gathering and fighting off savage competitors. When an aged man appears from the sky with the promise of a cure, Sundog is convinced by Fallingstar, a girl he cares deeply for, to go off on a quest to recover it, and an adventure to find the way to grow old commences. Writers Geszel and Spinetta have put great thought into constructing a believable world that has been run by teenagers for generations, although the story dawdles at times. Miranda's artwork and layouts are the standout; from its sweeping landscapes to its hectic action sequences, it continually conveys a sense of epic adventure. (June)
