    A ragtag group of gays in space fighting the patriarchy. The art and colors are absolutely stunning. The characters are all interesting and well-rounded and the plot is super compelling.

    I knew almost nothing about this book before cracking the cover, and I was pleasantly surprised by how engaging it is. In 2169, a ragtag group of LGBTQ+ individuals comes together to fight a medieval-style patriarchy that has knights in high-tech battlesuits fight it out in battle royale jousts for possession of princesses. This volume offers a satisfying hunk of story while leaving me wanting more, much more.

    This book is the epitome of the memes "Be Gay, Do Crimes" and "Space is Gay." It's great fun, the art is so beautiful it makes me stare in awe, and as a Lesbian TM I can't tell you how affirming and wonderful it is to see a cast made up pretty much entirely of sapphic ladies. I can't wait for Volume 2!

    Light, fun and fast-moving with great artwork, coupled with fighting tired gender expectations. Can’t wait to read the next volume.

    THIS WAS SO GOOD! The art style is FANTASTIC and the premise of princesses fighting in suits to earn their own hand in marriage AMAZING! The world had me super intrigued and I need to know more about the political scheming its so fun. Also having a scifi with only women as main characters was just very nice (Also I read this online which is very nice to have a free version, but I really want to buy a physical copy because the art style is super inspiring!)

    "For this ragtag band of space gays liberation means beating the patriarchy at its own game" I was so immersed by the graphics and the storyline, that I got to the end of this volume and didn't even notice! I need more! Pan and Tara are so beautiful as human beings and their friendship is just beautiful to watch even though there is hardship there and a crazy cliffhanger! I was literally taking notes of my reactions and my mind was racing with so many thoughts. How cool their purpose is and what "For this ragtag band of space gays liberation means beating the patriarchy at its own game" I was so immersed by the graphics and the storyline, that I got to the end of this volume and didn't even notice!

I was literally taking notes of my reactions and my mind was racing with so many thoughts. How cool their purpose is and what it represents, the beautiful wlw stories, Trans storyline, god Cass and Bee are a blessing to this world and just overall ass-kicking women in general! So many different kinds of women are portrayed in this volume as well and it was refreshing. I love the concept of the favor and how Tara was able to give it to someone she cared about, instead of having it taken away by a stranger, if that is not some social imagery right there, I don't know what is and it made the story that much more powerful because this beautiful graphic is so relevant to current times. I love the kind of world Hannah set up and I am holding my breathe for the next installment! do yourself a favor and grab this volume! Word has it information will be out on Volume two soon!

    WAIT IT JUST...ENDS?? I WANT MORE!! This is so good (the art! space gays! the setting!) and a perfect end to the year/decade, though so far the story/this volume is mostly setup.

    I'm a simple woman. I see gays fighting the patriarchy in space, I give five stars.

    Bought at SPX 2019 (apparently pre-release date but no one mentioned it to me). Space lesbians, sci-fi knights in armor, fucking up the patriarchy. What’s not to love? The lines and colors and facial expressions were very well done, too.

    rep f/f side couple, sapphic mc, amputee side character who's maybe trans (based on her tattoo), Black side characters so this comic is the definition of be gay do crimes but in space and that's everything i ever wanted. I'm not kidding when I say this is one of my favorite comic of the year (and all time fav). I'm starting to think the "gays in space doing crimes while being apart for years + fighting the system" is my thing. Hannah's art side is breathtaking, i loved the color palette used, rep f/f side couple, sapphic mc, amputee side character who's maybe trans (based on her tattoo), Black side characters so this comic is the definition of be gay do crimes but in space and that's everything i ever wanted.

The characters are all interesting in their own way, we can understand their motives (Cass' flashbacks were the best); I can't wait to know what will happen to them, especially Tara. This is my first book for #FFFeb 🌈

    I'm simultaneously excited for more of this and anxious about what's going to happen! It's a rough world for our leads, and they're constantly jumping right into the thick of it.

    Robot fighting, damsel saving, space gays. I agree with another reviewer, this is very "Be Gay. Do Crimes. In Space."

    Delivered every bit of the “ragtag group of space gays” that hooked me from the back jacket with high impact art and clear, concise, engaging writing. I literally have a crush on every main character and I cannot wait for more. Queer and fabulous and highly recommended.

    Reading this was just a 200 page series of me effectively CHANTING "I'm in love" over and over like the huge disaster of a lesbian I am. Beautiful art, fun story, great characters....I CANNOT wait for more.

    In a galaxy where princesses are fought for and won by cosmoknights, who are paid by wealthy suitors, two knights have been secretly working to buck the system. When these two are dangerously injured in a bout, they come to Pan's mother for medical attention. But when Pan hears their story, she can't resist stowing away with them. Together, can the three actually make a difference? The coloring and color palette are absolutely stunning, and this was a space story I was actually interested in.

The action sequences were difficult to follow at times, but the strong character development makes up for that. I'm intrigued enough to probably check out volume 2.
