In this volume the story opens up further as we learn more about Father Prophet, whom we glimpsed at the end of volume 1. Gradually we learn why he loathes the Earth Empire so much, of which he was once its brightest star. But he has come to realise the Earth Empire's cruelty and so, with his allies in tow, plans to strike a deathblow to her far reaching hands. And hence a character we viewed as an antagonist in the closing stages of the last volume, becomes our protagonist. We even start to feel sympathy towards him especially as we learn more about his life, from lost love, betrayal, and in the present his close friendship with four others;
Jaxson: who we first saw in the last volume seeking his friend, he resembles a robot.
Diehard: once a human but his exo-skeleton is now his only identity. He craves for normalcy and a link with his past.
Hiyonhaoiagn: the 'old tree' who is basically, a walking talking tree, setting roots where ever he decides to sit. He has a penchant for 'fire water', a liquid which I presume is like an alien version of Vodka, but a 100 times more potent - and flammable!
Rain - East: a lizard like humanoid. An assassin whom John free's on the Scale World.
These characters are one of the reasons why this comic is such an enjoyable read. They may appear alien in appearance, but they share a mutual respect and love for one another.Read more ›
The characters and ideas are really left field which make it a refreshing read that catches you of guard in a good way
It definitely needs a couple of re-reads and is of no use without part one.
Now to explain my rating. The art style is without a doubt, an acquired taste. I loved it personally and it brought to mind the French comic artist Moebius. This won't be too everyone's taste. Those who love the artwork of modern superhero sagas, stay away....you've been warned.
The story/plot could do with some coherence, but I wasn't put off by this. A lot of the concepts in the story are implied, and you are definitely left with some food for thought.
A lot of the story is passed through narration, with not a lot of focus on dialogue.
Old fans of Image series can also find a few homages too (particularly Supreme...) among the truly alien (and alienating) concepts and images through the story.
Its worth noting too that you will have to read the first volume to truly get to grips with the story. You can't pick up from here even though a 'new' protagonist is introduced.
You will either grow to love this series, or be left cold by it...

Epic series! It has what a space opera is about. I found many similarities to the Metabarons and the Incal, which is a pro. Don't miss itPublished 15 months ago by Panagiotis Apostolopoulos
Great story - great art - story flows well as the character reincarnates - recognizing the face on the different characters as the story evolves gives an extra depth to the story -... Read morePublished on 17 Jan. 2014 by Danny Rudman
