This was too fucking weird and really felt like a bunch of adult men trying to write female characters. The plot moves too quickly and jumps the shark nearly every "issue" - aliens! gunshot wounds! I also found the offensive language to feel a little over-the-top, but without the merit of actual character development. Coloring is beautiful, art is okay. Won't continue reading.

Not many good reviews but I LOVED IT and am totally hooked!!! Badass teenagers & new ways of playing with space/time travel are my jam! Can't wait to learn more about these characters and their villain.
