One Of The Best Books On The Stands
TV sector No. 10
8.5 / 10
High quality concept and high quality science fiction are shown in the greatest way ever done as a truly alien experience is illuminated in green.
It all started so many moons ago with a crime thriller in a city of 20 billion people, all “permanently infected with a bio-cybernetic virus called The Emotion Exploit that suppresses their emotions.” Far Sector # 10 and this dazzling, comprehensive, intimate saga is so far from it and remains one of the best books in the stands.

Let us marvel at it, framed through the lens of the exhausted police officer and combat veteran Sojourner “Jo” Muellin. We have arrived at a place where they can have “an” emotional sweatshop “that creates black market sentiments for a world without them” (as noted in the inquiries). This is deep, rich, conceptual science fiction work in emerald tones, a huge, heady feat of conception.
Then there is the execution that remains excellent. NK Jemisin’s script uses the framework of the process to develop and explore these gigantic ideas by developing very personal stakes. Jamal Campbell and Deron Bennett’s brilliant work of art is full of meaning and nuance, full of surprises and justice. Even before you get to the clean, sumptuous visual design (uniforms, the rounded hallway, hairstyles, and ultimately a star landscape), this book is the kind of pretty you would have liked to see but that you may find out of your league .
Wow. Only… with very few exceptions, each page was both a work of art and a literary triumph that escalated in leaps and bounds and small steps with equal skill. The only possible problem is that it all appears to end in two editions if a more fitting run for this series should run into the decades. EVALUATION: BUY.
