Kim’s mission to the other Antares planet – the one from which came the mysterious beam that took her daughter – is underway, and the young woman desperately wants to believe she will find her missing child. One amongst her team has no shortage of faith, though: the insufferable Jedediah Thornton is convinced they are going to meet an advanced alien civilisation. And he will stop at nothing to ensure humanity’s representative is a man of proper morals…

Well, as I think most regulars know, I am a big fan of Leo's.  He not only comes up with good stories but his art -space craft, planets and environments and even life forms are wonders.  Look at the pages below: there are even better ones in this book.

Am I going to recommend this book?  Oh come on -of course I am!  I was always left a little cold by sci fi/fantasy comics but Leo actually got me excited about the genre. 

One of Cinebooks best creative talents!


  1. Honestly, this is not a criticism - and the line art looks great...but the guys inside the dust-pan shuttle should - SHOULD - have greater saftey given to them than lap latch seat belts. I just think they should... y'know...broken bones ...dislocations .... all from jolting around during entering the atmosphere...ah...perhaps the shuttles designers DO believe in God afterall....'Pucker up, guys....after a few billion billion kilometeres journey by sophisticated space's going to be a close call with a jellyfish 'cos we don't have any safety features 'cept these belts....let us pray...." ahem...

  2. Ha ha ha ha ha. Hey, man -you been in space? Ever flown a space shuttle? Ever encountered an extraterrestrial jellyfish? DO NOT criticise until you do....windshield wipers, now there.....
