A species of aristocratic TV-headed warmongers. A spaceship that is also a magical tree. A sex-themed dreadnought hiding hideous crimes. A cyclops pulp fiction writer with a secret message. His ex-wife, a warm-hearted drug dealer (who is also a magical tree). At the heart of this wacky, action-packed sci-fi series are new parents Ilana and Marko, enemy soldiers from warring species, desperately trying to raise their illegally-conceived child at the fringe of intergalactic society. Like the novels of D. Oswald Heist, this gloriously campy comic book masks a heartfelt story about the hypocrisy of war. You will regret missing this one.— Jalen
