Ambition. It’s not a term I usually associate with children’s graphic novels. Your average everyday children’s comic is not particularly ambitious.

Superb sci fi graphic novel, with a bit of real science thrown into the mix. Group of six kids save themselves, and the world, in this fast-paced futuristic adventure story. And they're orphans - I've always had a soft spot for orphans.

I have to admit the title and cover made me think this was just going to be another comic about a group of kids who form a team and become superheroes or agents. I was wrong; it is much more than the average team-up. The plot is the main focus here and it is an exciting, intricate tale of murder,...
