Edgeworld – Graphic Novel Review

Edgeworld by Chuck Austen (Author) and Patrick Olliffe (Illustrator)

On the edge of known space, on the backwater, frontier planet of Pala, magistrate Killian Jess, and native Palan Cheela fight to protect a planet, and people, the rest of the galaxy has forgotten. Battling military occupation, alien invasions, otherworldly infestations, drug running, gang violence, black market traders, and the disastrous, ecological aftermath of a brutal, planet-wide war, they must learn to work together and collect any allies they can from the castoffs, misfits, and aliens occupying Pala, in order to save the world they love.

Edgeworld is the first volume in an exciting, space western series. With plenty of engaging characters, mystery, danger, and drama – this story reminds me of the best parts of the SyFy show Defiance. I love the unique aliens and this frontier planet of outcasts. Killian is a complex hero with a heartbreaking past that has hardened him. And the artwork is fantastic as well – from the vibrant colors to the beautiful illustrations. I enjoyed every bit of this installment and look forward to more in the series.
