    This is one of the most rewarding comic book reading experiences I've had of all time. I couldn't put this book down for a second, my heart literally raced as tensions rise, and I felt deeply for a computer A.I. that is as human as any character in the book. Science fiction is a favorite of mine and this book is clearly in my top five all-time favorite stories in the genre ever. Read Full Review

    Sentient is a truly original science fiction story that borrows traces of Lord of the Flies and Bicentennial Man infused with the human journey to beat insurmountable odds. The story by Lemire is heartfelt, harrowing, and redemptive. The art by Walta, Wands, Fletcher, and Powell is superb. Altogether, a story that shows the answer to the question, that if you can ever prepare your children for the unthinkable and to trust that you that your nurture leads to their better natures.

    If you're fan of sci-fi and/or horror comics, Sentient is so far up your alley and at this point so old that you probably already heard of it or own it, but let me implore you that if you haven't picked up a copy: please, please consider buying direct from TKO Studios. You're gonna end up with a staple sci-fi story from two master storytellers recounting a tale of survival and found family. And if you've read any of my reviews, you damn well know I love nothing more than a good found family story and this folks is a great one. Read Full Review

    Needless to say, I really recommend reading Sentient. While TKO Studios publishes stories in bundles, they're (as far as we know) stories without a follow-up. There's power in these short stories, and Sentient has this kind of power. You can order Sentient here. Read Full Review
