There's an intergalactic space station out there bigger than our solar system where  wants everyone to come along and meet up. The beacon made it sound like a utopia, but what Niko finds upon her arrival is a lawless expanse where everyone is out for themselves and she's so late she doesn't even have a seat at the table.

    Lindsay holds a mirror up to the current refugee crisis showing that even in a world as large as the Utopia it's first come, first serve. Perhaps the wider point is that we are all refugees in a way drifting through space looking for our own Utopia.

    Lindsay has written some instantly lovable characters who are wholly unique in their own right and Sebastian Priz was the perfect artist to bring this vision to life. There's a certain charm to his art that's both simplistic and incredibly detailed. Pages leap to life as Priz flexes his art skills. The character designs are unique and the colors are perfect for this art style. Read Full Review
