The premiere issue of an unforgettable new sci-fi epic that asks the question: what makes us human?

Enter the future where pollution, poverty, and armed conflict have been obliterated. Only off-world on the terraformed moons of distant planets does war still exist. Corporations command more power than governments and when they go to war, they use their own military force — armies composed of bio-engineered clones. For generations, these clones have not questioned why they live and die while their makers risk nothing. But now, one of their own will stand up against injustice, sparking a revolution that will change the entire galaxy, igniting INSURRECTION!

    Major Spoilers - Scott Hunter Mar 7, 2011

    As for covers, Cover A shows Tim standing in some warzone, on top of some fallen machine, with buildings and a green sky in the background. For starters, the place he's in doesn't look like any location in the book, nor does he really fight anything this issue. However, the colouring might help it stand out on the rack, and the title looks pretty good. Cover B shows some soldiers fighting one of the large machines from the book, so it immediately beats Cover A in terms of relevance. This cover is also really well-drawn and looks quite impressive, and although it doesn't really have that much to do with the plot or characters of the book, neither does the first third of the book itself.Worth Checking Out Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Mar 17, 2011

    Artist Michael Penick's artwork is done in a traditional comic-book style. It's really something of an old-school approach. Overall, his linework reminds me of the art of Eduardo Barreto, but there's also a bright, crisp quality to the comic art that puts me in mind of classic DC science-fiction comics of the 1960s. Other influences are apparent as well, notably a design sense that's reminiscent of Star Wars. Overall, his clear, solid storytelling is appealing, and I'd love to see more of it in the near future.

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan K Lindsay Mar 12, 2011

    That rating sounds so harsh but there's really nothing to see here. Posturing politics and small moments that won't make you want to come back. Read Full Review
