Evolving from the pages of Critters, this series is a three-issue space opera that uses animals to portray the characters of this gritty novella of piracy and political terrorism in distant galaxies. Former leaders of a decimated, dying planet are evacuated to a enormous patrol ship, unsure of their future or the fate of their world as they “jump” through a universe filled with selfish carpetbaggers.

The black-and-white artwork and sparse backgrounds are somewhat lacking but the characters are expressive and add a cartoon feel, in contrast to the serious and sometimes violent storyline. There are numerous subplots which add depth to the story, but the new reader may become lost without more background to the series presented here.
