When Sarai and her fellow emissaries from the Empire disembark from their ship, they find themselves on a planet teeming with life and mystery. The natives, whom they intend to "civilize," are not as malleable as expected and their only other human contact, a man, causes further conflict within their ranks. House of Women is Sophie Goldstein's second solo graphic novel, following 2015's muchlauded The Oven.

    Graphic Policy - pharoahmiles Jan 14, 2018

    Overall, a powerhouse graphic novel that I wished I knew about sooner as it is will not leave you soon after you read it. The story by Sophie Goldstein successfully combines science fiction, thriller, and horror, into a richly woven tapestry. The art by Goldstein is elegant, off putting, and vibrant. Altogether, a science fiction tale that draws you in with an interesting but familiar premise and then subverts all your expectations in the most glorious way. Read Full Review
