Book Description

2 Mar 2010
Where did the space heroes go to die? From Warren Ellis, the writer who reinvented science fiction in comics in the alternate-world style of the award-winning Ministry Of Space and Aetheric Mechanics, comes a retropunk "future of the past" where spaceships still belched smoke and arguments were still settled with laser pistols. Grounded space pilot Mary Raven has come to the interzone settlement in the middle of Ignition City, Earth's last spaceport, to recover the effects of her dead father... or so people think. Mary really wants to know how he died, and who did it? But, today might be her last day on Earth, trapped on the last spaceport where no-one cares about murder and the only real currency is fear. She has her dead father's raygun, and that's enough for space hero-turned-arms dealer Lightning Bowman to want her dead. But she also has her dead father's diary. And when she finds out something no-one else in the settlement knows... they'll want her dead for that, too! Featuring the art of Aetheric Mechanics' Gianluca Pagliarani, this full-color volume collects all five issues of the sci-fi epic with a gorgeous cover gallery full of design sketches, ray-gun fights, and giant metal machines!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 14 Jan 2011
By Stuney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a great book. Warren Ellis was on his game with this one. I couldn't stop reading once I started. The art is also very good and fits the story perfectly. If you're a fan of Ellis, this book is a must have. If you've never read Ellis before, this book is definitely worth a try. This HC has become a treasure in my collection. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Warren Ellis and scifi 30 April 2010
By Evzenie Reitmayerova - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
it is Warren Ellis and his new scifi story. the woman comes to the last space port on earth to find out who killed her father who was an astronaut hero.
it is decent scifi pulp story that takes place in the 50s and adds some alien technol'ogies and even aliens living on Earth.
pretty cool if you like warren elllis.... as usual too short but maybe part 2 will come sometime.
high quality print, good pictures.
