  1. This looks quite good Lashaan! I have no idea who the author is but is seems like putting him in charge of the story really paid off. The art isn’t drawing me in though the cover is intriguing. I like how you talked about Moth… I love when just the name sparks interest, I kind of just want to read it to see what that is about… 😉

    1. It sure does, doesn’t it? 😀 Oh? You really never heard of him before? He’s the author of The Girl With All the Gifts, for example. 😮 Ah, and in all honesty, I’m not the biggest fan of the artwork, but I appreciate what was accomplished by them here. I think what I like the least about everything is the character designs. Otherwise, I do like how the world is drawn! 😀 Ahhh, he’s a peculiar character. He evolves relatively quickly too, which might seem odd sometimes, but it’s fascinating to see what he’s capable of as he gains “power”. Oh, and about the cover, each issue (#1-6) was drawn by Yuko Shimizu and they put one of those covers as the book’s cover. I would have loooooooved to see the whole story drawn by Yuko Shimizu as the art is soooo much more compelling too! Thank you for reading, Dani! I appreciate it a lot! 😀


  2. Yea dude. This one going on my TBR for sure. The name “M.R. Carey” popped in my head when I saw the writer’s name above, but I was still surprised when you mentioned it’s the same dude. I didn’t know he did comics too. I loved how Girl With All the Gifts was written.

    1. Hahahah I do love to spoil an author’s pseudonym. 😀 Mike Carey is a huge comic book writer too. It’s probably why he decided to write novels under his M.R. Carey name. 😀 Hope you’ll enjoy your time with it if you do pick it up. Be ware, again hahah, that the artwork is not the same as the one on the cover. The cover art is done by an artist who did all the cover art for the single issues in that style. They just picked the cover of one of the issues to be the cover of the collected edition. 😀


  3. It looks lovely. I enjoyed The Girl With All the Gifts, it showcased Carey’s storytelling skills, and the art in this looks very promising. I’ll try to get my hands on it 😉

  4. Very interesting, I like Carey, both his comics and novels (Felix Castor series – very good urban fantasy), so I’ll make a note to one day read this 🙂
