Wow this book blew me 5 meters across the floor, Stood up & shook it off!
It has a high end sci-fi impression to it, A more realistic feel to what our future may well be (think Cowboy Bebop).
Written by Kyle Higgins & Alec Siegel, Artwork by Rod Reis. Story is taken straight from the cold war where America & Russia nuke each other & many decades later they come together, Later they find peace & further advance technology to make humankind better. Hundreds of years go by & focus on space exploration. Now a new cold war brews...& it (of course) starts with a murder.
Our leading character Simon is awoken in the early morning by a phone call from his ex-misses Annabelle. who lives on the space ship "Hadrian's Wall". Her new husband is suspectedly killed while doing a EVA (extravehicular activity). Simon is a detective & a good one at that & when Annabelle finds out he is on board to investigate she is none to pleased...Simon is alarmed & wants to know who threw out his pain killing medicine, Since no-one should know about it.
Hmm...This is good, fantastic read actually. Best i've read in a while.
On the mature side & a read that's on any sci-fi nuts list, Plus the ship is most awesome (you only see it once) The first thing that came to my mind was the Japanese "Yamato" from "Starblazers" anime...very cool indeed.
