    This is one of those delightful little sci-fi worlds where the aliens are outlandish without regard being given as to how nature might have formed such a creature. In addition to that, I was somewhat ecstatic when I noticed the author using Esperanto as a language to differentiate the two warring species. While not much is done to render itself as standing outside the star-crossed lovers story, the setting is unique enough in its own flavor that one would have a hard time being bothered by all of the archetypical writing in the story. Personally, I’d prefer a well-written story from an old style than something grasping so hard for originality that it starves itself of any real creativity. I won’t even rave about the quality of the art, or harp on the laurels of the authors, as there are others better suited to the tasks. Let it suffice for me to say: “You should read this.”

    Very excited to see where this new series goes!

    From Brian K. Vaughan, the same creator that brought some of the most undeniably fun comics of the last 10 years, including the post-apocalyptic feminist adventure, Y: The Last Man, and the alternative superhero history of New York City circa the early 2000’s, Ex Machina.

    With this series he steps into deeper realms of science fiction and fantasy. The world is very inventive and the politics seem realistically complicated.
