One of my fave science fiction comics ever, a can't-miss if you're a fan of dystopias or high-action sci-fi. In the near future, criminals from poor communities are deported to a "correctional colony" on a desert planet where they work in the mines or try to survive in the gang-controlled neighborhoods. The story roughly follows the intersection of two main characters: Isaac, a young black man who is transported, and Lena, a brown queer woman who's been living on the planet for some time and whose gang controls a section of the only city there. Gangs come into conflict, characters struggle for power, and by the end of the second volume, a Big Secret is revealed.

This book just about crackles with electricity. The art is bold and striking, the colors are rich, and it's full of action and even a little magic. Only two volumes were produced, which leaves the story incomplete, but well worth reading anyway.

(All of the primary creators are people of color. The cast is overwhelmingly people of color, many are women, and some are queer. Yay diversity!)

This comic is fantastic, art and story wise. Something kind of new with the gangsters, mixed with a running man kind of storyline. Super enjoyable and really human. Loved it.
