*I received an ecopy of this book via NetGalley. This has not influenced my review.*

This was great! Sci-fi, action, mystery, twists, humor, romance, friendship, lovable characters—a bit of everything, with beautiful art, to boot!

The characters were so lovable and easy to root for. Ren was sort of shy and anxious. Mars was excitable and eager. Jia was withdrawn and jaded. Phoebe was friendly and fun. Phoebe was especially great and sort of hilarious sometimes. There were a couple other characters too with smaller parts. And they all had good hearts. I liked them all.

This was set in a future society that was queernormative and accepting, and there was lots of queer rep. Multiple characters were nonbinary. There was a m/m romance in the story. There were more characters of different sexualities.

The romance and friendships were woven in with the sci-fi plot, and they were really cute.

The story was great. Mysterious and dangerous and interesting and twisty. I was confused about some things in the beginning, but it made sense eventually, so just hang in there. It was fairly calm for most of the book, the characters spending time together, doing things with the time travel project, trying to uncover secrets and whatnot, but it got a little more action-filled near the end. There were some heavier things, but they weren’t overly dwelled on, so the mood never got dark.

I loved the art style! So bold and fun and colorful! Expressive characters. Amazing use of color palettes for each scene. Nice backgrounds when necessary, but sometimes just solid color that really worked for the aesthetic. Really well laid out, never confusing. The whole thing was just so pretty.

The description mentions this started as a webcomic, and I actually looked at it to double check something, and it appears the story has been redrawn and rewritten with some differences. Just something to be aware of if you were hoping to use it as a preview or something.

Overall, I really liked the mysterious sci-fi story, the lovable characters, the cute romance and friendships, the beautiful art, and really just everything about this graphic novel!

    This sounds cool, I want to read it. Good to know that the art has been redrawn and edited from the original webcomic though. I’m actually quite glad of that as it helps it feel like you’re getting something new. I always wonder if it’s worth paying when you can get the webcomic free with these things.

      I really enjoyed! In this case, the webcomic was only chapter 1 or something. But I think it’s perfectly fine to read webcomics for free, the creators wouldn’t make them available if they didn’t want people to be able to enjoy them that way. But there have been a couple times when I read a webcomic and loved it so much that I bought print copies, so you can always support them after reading if you want to!
