After the Gold Rush #4 Miles Greg, art by Elli Puukangas
Review by Maxx
It's been a while of looking at the ATGR books on the shelves and the guilt of not having actually read them finally got to me. When they were brought it I flipped through them and loved the covers. I'm glad we have 4 issues now. The story starts off a bit rocky for those of us that didn't follow the webcomic. I like a story that doesn't feel the need to explain everything to the reader, but I felt like I was left guessing for the first two issues. ATGR follows Scout as she crash lands back on Earth after having only known life in a colony on Titan. Miles Greb notes in the back of the issues that all attempts have been made to make the stories scientifically accurate and invites questions or corrections. I enjoyed #4 the most, the story finally is taking on more of a plot than just chance encounters and characters beyond Scout develop depth. I also enjoyed the cleaner lines of Elli Puukangas work and hope that we get to see more in following issues.
Definitely recommended for the scientists in your life - young and old. This book is appropriate for all ages.
Shop Assistant Sean recently read Outfoxed by Dylan Meconis. He's still going through a phase where he loves foxes, so this one really caught his eye. This is great story for a mature child reader (as our 10-year-old SAS could be categorized) and still appeals to adults. Here is what SAS has to say:
"It shows a useful moral, that you can't force someone to love you, no matter what you do. I love the art and book itself. The art is unlike most that I see in comics."

"The book is gross and disturbing and after you finish it you will most likely feel uneasy."
