    UNBORN #1 is a space horror/drama that feels like its taking you in one direction but surprises you with a twist that opens the door for a completely unpredictable and welcome reading experience. The dialog and interpersonal relationship writing are very strong, and the facial expressions from the characters sell the emotion poignantly. Read Full Review

    Unborn surprised me, and in a good way. I didn't know what to expect, but what I got was a sci-fi thriller that takes no prisoners. Gogol and his team have created a fantastic start to this fantastic voyage, and I want to see if the team can make it back home in one piece. Pick this one up; it's outstanding. Read Full Review

    I was not a fan of the decision to dedicate several pages to the mission logs but this was otherwise a great story. SPOILERS FOLLOW: I was particularly intrigued by the handling of Captain Trang’s pregnancy and the death of the baby’s father. Trang seems to suggest she has no intention of keeping the baby and is struggling with trying to tell the father, who was mortally wounded by the monsters. If the story progresses such that Trang comes to see the value of the life of her child and decides to keep it, it would show a surprisingly counter-cultural level of moral maturity. I’m definitely intrigued to see where this story goes, what happens to the baby, and what meaning, if any, can ultimately be found in this series’ title.
