    A couple of star-crossed lovers from two different species on opposing sides of an interstellar war are on the run in a wooden rocket ship with their infant daughter and her ghost babysitter as they are pursued by the forces of both sides including a royal family member who is a robot with a television for a head as well as a bounty hunter who has an oversized cat who can tell when anyone is lying.

    Geez, why can’t any comic book creators come up with something original?

    Ah, but seriously…. This second volume of Brian K. Vaughan’s wild story is just as good as the first. One of the things I love most about this series so far is that despite all the crazy elements, Vaughan makes everything so relatable. This may be taking place in space during a massive war that involves everything from magic to worlds dedicated solely to prostitution, but whether it’s meeting the in-laws or telling us about how Alana and Marko met, there’s a very human element to all the wackiness. That’s what makes the whole thing so damn awesome.

    Dear Mr. Vaughan,

    I do not know what process you go though to produce comics like these. I do not know what dark alchemy you perform, what infernal pacts you have agreed to, what terrifying drugs you must imbibe. I have no idea what arcane rituals you must perform every day, what odd odd habits of diet and exorcize you must maintain to keep your mind limber and sparking, to write things like this.

    I just wanted to say, whatever it is you're doing, please keep doing it.

    Sincerely,

    pat

    I put in requests at the library for these books. Did I take the time to look at how many holds they have on them? Nope. So I've ended up with Volumes 2 and 3 first and weeks to go before I'll get Volume 1. I still read this..because I'm a rebel like that. Plus my library sends letters out on over due books that scare me.

    This is a fun book. Told from the point of view of the young baby. It's well done and funny. Plus the art work is wonderful.

    Plus you have this guy..You know I had to go there.

    … but I never felt so attached to that of a bundle of characters in a same series. I’m thinking, and thinking, and truth is that I love every one of them. Alright, so I mayhap want to dispatch of that annoying robot prince, but I’m sure he’ll slaughter himself some day, and I’m pretty patient. Well, relatively patient.

    Did I ever mention how much I love the fact that it is the lovebirds’ little Hazel who narrates the story? I can’t wait to see her all grown up. This sequel is different from the first book because it doesn’t only go on with the plot and how things were left but also goes back in time to moments that led to the present, and I must say that I was HOOKED.

    This series continues to blow me away! Loving it!

    Loving this series so far! It's bizarre as hell, but AMAZING! Reminds me a lot of the old Star Wars movies.

    This comic book is an incredible adventure right from page 1.

    I seriously could not put this story down. It made me laugh, smile, and even tear up at one point (Barr…).

    I never knew what to expect from the incredible ensemble of characters and I think that made the plot that more epic.

    The chemistry between all of the characters is phenomenal.

    Izabel, Gwendolyn, and of course Alana are so damn badass.

    And that ending was AMAZING.

    Why have I waited so long to read this series?

    On to the next volume!

    review to come, but man, am i loving this series!

    okay, time for a real review!

    it's hard to know where to begin….

    this series is all told from the POV of a girl, detailing the events and adventures of her baby-years and before, including the romantic forbidden love between her parents.

    it was not, however, love at first sight.

    but it's not all lovey-dovey stuff, nor even lovey-punchy-with-a-rifle stuff. there's also … this

    and how much do i love alana? not only for her dry wit

    and how much do i love alana? not only for her dry wit

    but also for her enthusiasm about BOOKS! well, okay,

    book in particular. but still, it's adorable, especially because of this familiar scenario where you're talking about a book you love and your excitement gets in the way of your powers of articulation and you get this reaction to your blathering:

    been there, my friends…

    but also deep in my heart is lying cat

    nooooo! no killing lying cat! lying cat is for SNUGGLING!

    there was much peril for lying cat in this volume. at one point i made an audible squeak. not even embarrassed about it.

    i want my own lying cat. i also want these things

    anyway, an excellent second part to a series that is quickly taking over my life and my heartspace.

    you're welcome, book! so glad to be a part of this journey!

    • We're showered with some much-wanted backstory on my favourite duo:

    • Get introduced to a new set of badass mofos:

    • Feast our eyes upon more gloriously graphic art:

    • And of course, get a glimpse of the most adorable little bean that is young Marko:

    • Bonus content – Harambe makes an appearance (forgive me):

  • Maureen

    The art is beautiful, the story is so complex and intriguing and I just love it a lot so far.

    EVERYONE WAS RIGHT ABOUT THIS SERIES
