When I saw the cover + Jenn Woodall, I just knew I had to read this one! Thanks to the publishers for allowing me to read this one! I had fun! Tons of fun!
I will do a what I love/what I didn’t love review. Just so very tired and so much more to do~
😍 The Cover! It looks so much fun and I love the poses of the girls. You know already, these are not to be messed with!
😍 That it takes place in space. In a school. It isn’t until we go outside that you really get that this is outside. Until then it just looks your average high school, well, OK, maybe not average given the violence and such.
😍 The friendship between these three girls and how they were thinking, or well, Stab making up names for their crew. Ranging from Cosmic Daggers to The Planet Stompers. I loved how they stick together no matter what situation and are there for each other.
😍 Loved that Agatha wanted to be named Stab, and frankly, I don’t blame her. Stab just fits better with her!
😍 Loved seeing how everyone in the school looked. Sometimes with graphic novels people don’t really stand out and are just a bit same-ish, but in this one? There are plenty of fun peeps to see with wild hairs, fun clothes, various body-sizes, and more.
😍 The space suit design of the kids was awesome. Not your standard suit but something else entirely.
😍 That Earth is dead… or is it. I was saddened when we learn of Earth demise.. but just like many sci-fi books there is a twist. Oh yes!
😍 The ending and what was revealed there! That just made me smile and I am definitely rooting for our characters and curious for the next book. Because if they get THAT finished? There are so many new possibilities.
😍 The art was fantastic. Even though space can be a bit bland, the author went with bright and fun colours.
😍 Loved how there was plenty of flirting, furtive glances, and some more!
😍 My fav girl quickly became Yuki! I love strong woman, and with Yuki that is literally the case as she has lots of muscles. Plus, I love that, unlike the other two she stayed mostly normal. XD Though she is there if her friends need her.
😍 I have so many questions on the mysterious student council! I hope that we see more of it in the next volume.
😶 It just felt a bit, especially in the beginning, as if I should have read an earlier volume, while this one is clearly the first one. There were just a few bits here and there that made me feel like I missed out. Graphic novels are good at that, I know when I started reading them years ago it was quite a struggle at times. Manga is a bit easier in that, they at least give you an introduction.
But as you can see, just one little point that was a small issue at the beginning, as soon as I got in the story it was all fine! I cannot wait for the next volume and I hope we see a bit more of the world outside of the school. I know they live in dorms, but you can’t seriously mean there is nothing else, right? Plus, with that ending? I just need more!
