Graphic Novel Review: Rogue Planet

[ Image Source: ComiXology.com ] Just amazing artwork. If you click this picture, it takes you to a source to buy the individual comics that are available for release now, unlike this graphic novel, that will release on 02 Mar 2021.

I completed this as an ARC in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley.com.

Have you ever seen a comic running through a tablet that looks 3D? Holy Cannoli. Nonstop, dropkick, knock your face off, extra-pulpy SciFi monster-butter on top of SciFi bread with space jelly of whatever flavor you want, here with Rogue Planet. I really enjoyed this one! 🤨

Amazing. 🤯 This is the cover for issue #3 without the typography.

Cosmic space horror explosion of monsters with gritty, humorous dialog. At first the artwork reminded me of Saga in style, but better, ( note: I didn’t read Saga on a tablet ) in regards to glowing on a lighted screen, and on more than one occasion, seemed to leap off and run away in somewhat of a psuedo-three-dimensional emulation sorcery. I blazed through 180-ish pages on a 10″ Kindle ( unrelated note: even though I was ready to send the device out into oblivion in regards to the new update that’s blocking me from accessing critical services on the open internet. Amazon, why have you betrayed your valued customer? ) I can’t say enough on how much I enjoyed flipping through these high-octane, creatively done odd pages of absolute fun and perfect reading for a Friday night. I really don’t even want to tell you about the story or what’s in it not to spoil the fun! And, don’t be fooled by these snaps, there’s plenty of dialog in this book:

Recommendation:

Honestly, I’m not sure I’ve felt this particular way about a comic graphic novel ( I’ve read quite a bit of comics since I was a teenager ) or any comic for that matter, because the way I gauge the value of a book is by it’s entertainment value and this shoots stars across the sky, but this is for adults with some strong themes that come along with the genre. I’d say, get a digital copy of each comic so you can enjoy the effects the lighted screen gives up some 3D type effects, then buy the hard copy graphic novel when it comes out next year, in March. Every ounce of matter that can fit into ★★★★★ five stars out of five, for this excellent bit of fun.

Guys, until next time – may you find all the happiness that your life can fit in it’s happy spot – S.D. McKinley

Good looking out, there, Mr. Bookstooge. That’s fixed, now. I’m really surprised my very first Net Galley review was this good! I appreciate it! 😁

You are welcome 🙂

and just so you know, I wasn’t even notified of your “like” this time. I figured since you had commented on the jeeves review about the comments that I better come check.
Let me know if you need any more info from me. I’m always happy to provide data to straighten that kind of thing out.

I’m self hosted all the way sitting probably in the AWS infrastructure. The load times are quite poor and I’m honestly not enthused with the service, even though they give you some tools for safeguarding your site with automated snapshots to revert to a place in time if need be.

I know all about the technology industry and how servers work all the way from the HTML and CSS to the way a Linux computer handles memory. Truth be told, I could run my own server that would run circles around this one, unfortunately I already paid for a year . . . 🙆‍♂️

Glad to know there is someone else in the house that can take value from this! 😄 It seems like these newer comics are def geared for tablets, even created on them. It adds a dimension to the viewing experience.
