This was such a fun graphic novel to read. The adventure story kept me wondering what would happen, and the illustrations added a lot of humour and depth. I’ve been describing this book to colleagues as Jellaby meets “Firefly.” I don’t know if that’s the most particularly apt comparison there is, but that’s what it made me think of (and it has piqued some people’s interest). The book has been on a number of ‘Best of’ and ‘Must Read’ lists, and I definitely agree with those lists. I can’t wait to read more.
