Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this graphic novel is set in the wake of an alien invasion in which most of the planet's human population has been wiped out. The surviving characters fight off griffin-like dragons, resulting in much gunplay and explosions, though no human blood or casualties are shown.
Is It Any Good?
The choreography of the action sequences rarely makes sense, the dialogue sounds strained, and the characters are one-note stereotypes. Christopher Moore is an accomplished satirical novelist (Bite Me, Lamb, The Stupidest Angel), but he and his collaborator, screenwriter-director Ian Corson, display no facility for comics scripting in this muddled, unfunny, annoying graphic novel.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
