Review by Scott
Interesting. At the moment, at least it feels like a variation on Ender's Game with a heroine instead of a hero, but the distinctions are sufficient and the characters interesting enough to make it fun in its own right. It is after all, only superficially similar to Ender's Game. Card's style works well in the comics medium as he's talk heavy anyway. (Not mean to be a critique, just my impression.)Young kids, of both sexes, are selected to go work on a space station created by aliens, while the aliens aren't formics and their is no war, it is interesting how closely some of the adult/child relationships seem to parallel Ender already, and how the character rolls can at least be superficially parcelled out to Ender's Game equivalents. Still, Ender's Game was brilliant right? not a bad piece to reimagine, and Card has, in many ways, made a large part of his career refashioning his own work and spinning off of it.
