This series ender combines sci-fi action with a depth of character development you normally don't expect from graphic novels. It will definitely appeal to fans of the Lunar Chronicles series, even those who normally don't read graphic novels. Iko is the narrator and main character in Gone Rogue. In many scenes she's fighting the bad guys with real skill. In just as many scenes, she contemplates her identity, as an android possessing so many human traits and emotions. Even the main bad guy, between raids and ambushes, has some depth. You can see why he longs to have his humanity back and why he doesn't trust his government.

The illustrations by Stephen Gilpin (who's known more for younger kid fare), show both the inner and outer struggles of the characters as well. Fights with hordes of mutants and androids and soulful glances get the same quality of attention.
