"A cosmic murder mystery! Gavin Smith [corrals] an army of characters, each clamoring for their own space, and gives us a beautiful wending road that takes us to the sensational conclusion. I love Jason Aaron, but I enjoyed this better than the graphic novel it's based on." - Tade Thompson, Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author of Rosewood and Far From the Light of Heaven
