Read Joyride, Volume 1 Online Free - Earth sucks.
The stars have been blocked out for so long that people have forgotten there was anything else besides the World Government Alliance watching over them. Uma Akkolyte is a girl who shoots first, leaps before she looks, and is desperate for any means to leave her planet behind. And so she does. When Uma jacks an alien spaceship and punches through the stratosphere she sets forth on an adventure with an unlikely crew who are totally not ready for all the good, bad, and weird the universe will throw at them.
From writers Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly (Batman and Robin Eternal, Grayson) and artist Marcus To (Nightwing, New Avengers), Joyride is a rebellious love letter to the sci-fi genre, exploring what happens when nothing stands between a group of teens and their freedom amongst the stars.

Energetic, fun, and hopeful. Strong characterization with great designs. To and Kniivila's art is striking, sharp, and warm.
If you like Runaways, Ms. Marvel, Guardians of the Galaxy, or Star Trek, you'll probably like Joyride.

A fun outer space adventure! Shades of Firefly, but the cast is a bit more CW than Fox. Not a bad thing, in this case. Looking forward to future issues.

I have never been someone that has read or reads a lot of graphic novels/comic books. But I have to say, I really did enjoy this story. The illustrations were beautifully done. I am looking forward to reading all of this series.

How to explain how much I adored this. I fell in love with everything about it from the first page. The art is gorgeous, the characters are amazing, the story is so exciting. And the relationships!! Don't even get me started on them. I'm just so in love with every aspe...

So... pretty fun but I will admit to being disappointed. The characters are complete YA archetypes (manic pixie dream girl- check!) and every human is white. Sigh.
That being said, it is beautifully drawn and may get somewhere less expected in Volume 2. Here's hoping.
