  1. Perhaps I’ll make this my intro to Jeff Lemire’s work. I really like the sound of this one. I’ve had a craving lately for some sci-fi and this fits the style I was thinking of. The artist looks to do a good job of conveying emotion in characters. I like the toned down color scheme. Like you said, it helps develop the tone of the work. Thanks for this review, Lashaan. It’s not a book I’d have otherwise been aware of.

    1. I’m glad to hear your interest in this title too, Todd! There are so many places where you could start with Jeff Lemire’s work but it all comes down to what you’re craving for in particular; the man has pretty much explored everything and anything! The advantage of this title is that it’s just one graphic novel with no spin-offs or sequels! Thanks for reading, my friend. I look forward to the day you try his work.


  2. Nothing by Lemire has attracted me yet and this doesn’t change that.
    At the same time, nothing about his work has truly turned me off either. It’s just been a series of meh’ness. I am glad he’s not a meh for you. Finding something that you can truly enjoy is not something to take lightly.

    1. He has sooooo many titles under his belt today that anyone exploring his work is bound to run into a couple of bad ones, and I’m no exception. I stick around so that I don’t miss out on the good ones even if occasionally there are some average/bad ones too. Hopefully, he won’t do something outrageous that will just keep me away from him. 😀

  3. Mmmm the concept is a little bit frightening (to have AI raising children) and I am not convinced by the art here :-((( So I am sorry to say that it does not seem something I’d love to read Lashaan. But your review is excellent!

    1. Thanks, Ola! My all-time favourite by him and the only 5 stars I gave was for his “Doctor Star & the Kingdom of Lost Tomorrows” graphic novel. Otherwise, depending on what you’re in the mood for, I enjoyed his Moon Knight, first volumes of Sweet Tooth, Descender (I think I mentioned the watercolour by Dustin Nguyen that you’d probably enjoy), Sentient, and the first volumes of Gideon Falls (its mystery had a hook in me and the artwork made it even more enthralling) and the first volumes of his Black Hammer universe.

      Soooo… Plenty of places where you could start. You just have to go with what you’re craving for (artistically and story-wise!). 😀
