Publisher’s Summary: Protecting the City Enduring’s population of 20 billion aliens gets even harder when rookie Green Lantern Jo Mulein is thrust into the middle of a massive protest that’s about to get out of hand. What do the protesters want? The right to feel.


Review

Lack of representation and the suppression of the thoughts and concerns of the unrepresented is an issue that still, surprisingly, plagues our country. Voices, especially those that are atypical in whatever space they are sounding within, often become lost in the noise of fear and misunderstanding. N.K. Jemisin intelligently provides readers with good reason to take a step back and reevaluate how they view the world and, more specifically, how they open they are to the opinions and feelings of others.

In addition to being timely and thought-provoking, Far Sector is highly-entertaining. Issue #3 drops readers into the middle of a protest and, as tensions continue to grow, reading this story becomes more and mores emotionally involving.

Not only has Jamal Campbell fully realized the world that Jemisin has penned, but he has also elevated the story, and in doing so, has provided readers with an immersive escape route. Campbell’s world-building and attention to detail is impressive, but, for me, what really pulls me into this story is Campbell’s expression work; characters look, move, and react authentically, making it easy to forget that they are fictional constructs.

The Worst Dudes #1 Review

The Worst Dude is funny, irreverent, and profane as well as delightfully packed with swashbuckling adventure. Definitely worth a look.

Jupiter’s Legacy Is Not Watchmen and That’s Okay: Netflix Original Series Review

Jupiter’s Legacy hits incredibly hard while offering viewers a well-crafted blend of caped-crusading-escapism and social commentary; this combination makes for a grounded viewing experience that’s as exciting as it is though-provoking. Jupiter’s Legacy is a must-watch series.

Eve #1 Review

Eve is more than just a typical “save the planet” story. It is more about a little girl’s courage and a love that endures even in simulation. Armed with the fake bear and a dinghy, her adventure starts.
