FINAL ISSUE! The stunning conclusion of the 10-part science fiction adventure story set in a frozen world like no other starts here!

Part of me is sad to see this end and the other part of me thinks this is a perfectly complete story. Though with this being said I wouldn’t mind seeing what home looks like and the girls reaction to it. Honestly I doubt they’ve ever been warm a day in their lives and it would be interesting to see what happens when they go someplace that isn’t a frozen tundra. I say this because this is how much the boys have been able to get me invested and engaged in this series and their lives. Having witnessed the tragedy in the girls' lives and watching their dogged determination and will to live you have to admire them for their persistence and ingenuity. This has been a truly unexpected delight to read, we know these creators are amazing but I found this thanks to ComiXology and I might not have heard of it otherwise which is why you need to pay attention to the digital comics platform.

I love every single moment of the way that this is being told. The story & plot development that we see through how the sequence of events unfold as well as how the reader learns information are presented exceptionally well. The character development that we see through the narration, the dialogue, the character interaction as well as how we see them act and react to the situations and circumstances which they encounter does a magnificent job in continuing to flesh out their personalities. The pacing is exceptional and as it takes us through the pages revealing more of the story the more we appreciate and admire these girls.

I am greatly appreciative of the way that we see this being structured and how the layers within the story continue to emerge, grow, evolve and strengthen. I am also liking the way that we see these layers opening up new avenues to be explored. While wherever home is isn’t likely to be explored it’s still the biggest avenue that we want to see explored. How we see everything working together to create the story’s ebb & flow as well as how it moves the story forward are impeccably handled.

Jock is utterly amazing and his style of work is instantly recognisable. What he is capable of doing with this sensational linework and the varying weights and techniques being utilised to create this kind of detail within the work that we see is extraordinary. We actually see a lot of backgrounds being utilised throughout the issue and they enhance and expand the moments. They also work within the composition of the panels to bring out the depth perception, sense of scale and the overall sense of size and scope to the story is marvellously rendered. The utilisation of the page layouts and how we see the angles and perspective in the panels shows a masterful eye for storytelling. The various hues and tones within the colours being utilised to create the shading, highlights and shadow work shows a phenomenal eye for how colour works. Because this is a frozen tundra how we see all these shades of whites, blues and blacks being utilised is beyond stunning to see and it has the ability to actually send shivers down the readers’ spines.

The events in this issue really do take a turn that I hadn’t seen coming and I’m super thrilled by that. If you can keep me guessing all the way up to the last page then you’ve gone above and beyond what anyone and everyone has come to expect out of the writing. Also why does Millie have this 99.9% DNA Match with that robot exoskeleton? That was never addressed and I wanna know how this relates to the dude hunting them and this home planet. Another something to ponder as the reader is engaged in this story so far beyond what we are shown. With some of today's most intriguing writing and sensational characterisation wrapped up in these brilliant interiors just makes me want to see more stories from this creative team.
