Sasha knew sabotage was inevitable.  He expected it from the outside - from the other multi-national coalitions building ships - but when he discovers sabotage is coming from within, Sasha is on a mission. He and Roger must work together - something they've never been good at - to try to stop the mysterious saboteur before they destroy everything.
Written by Peter Calloway (TV's Legion, Cloak & Dagger, American Gods) and drawn by Alex Shibao (Independence Day), THE LAST SPACE RACE is an imaginative investigation into wonder, hope and humankind's grandest purpose - a truly original story AfterShock couldn't be more fired up to tell.

    The Last Space Race continues to have some interesting ideas behind it but the delays between issues and the awkward nature of how the story is framed out and presented means it's a hard one to really connect with. There are things I like in this issue in getting to know Sasha better and why he's such a danger to this mission and I really enjoyed the time in space seeing them react to danger. But it's also easy to forget about the big picture and why all of this is happening because of the delays and when you realize you're on the fourth issue and began reading it six or seven months ago.

    There's not a ton of big action, the tension and drama make up the lions share of the issue, but that's fine with me. If your looking for big action scenes and battles this is probably not the book I would suggest. However, if you are looking for a good read with a sci fi bent and great characters, this might be the book you're looking for. Read Full Review

    I was let down by the story and art in this issue. Something goes wrong, but was it sabotage? It's very unclear. Did we need all the backstory on Sasha? Not at all. It seems this issue could be skipped and nothing really lost in the overall arc of the story. The visuals went from good to average, and this includes the colors. Four issues in and the characters and reader are no closer to the alien ship. I've grown impatient. I'm still on board for the next issue, but I'm expecting it to be better than this installment.
