If you like comics, I want to point out “Space Trawler” (http://spacetrawler.com/) by Christopher Baldwin, who sent me a copy of his new book recently. I don’t ordinarily read much sci-fi (in prose or comic form), but I was drawn into this and really impressed. The artwork is amazing – imaginative creatures, hilarious facial expressions, gorgeous color and texture. Personally, as an artistic minimalist, I can’t even imagine attempting to draw backgrounds like these – they would take me a million years, yet Chris manages two full pages a week on his website. The characters are layered and engaging – funny, cute, distinct, with great dialogue. The story is suspenseful and I love the strong women. If you want some smart fun, this book is worth buying, and the artist is well worth supporting.
