Title: Zed: A Cosmic Tale
Author/Illustrator: Michel Gagné
Year Published: 2013
Synopsis: When a cute little alien named ZED demonstrates his invention to the Hierarchy of the Galaxy, something goes wrong--terribly wrong! Before long, ZED's universe is thrown into complete turmoil and our little hero must face nearly insurmountable odds trying to survive and save the very fate of his home world.
Imbued with a dark edge, peppered with pure silliness, and wrapped up in a childlike sense of wonder, ZED's adventures will keep readers tickled and captivated from start to finish.
Originally published in comic book form over a period of eleven years, ZED has been completely revised and remastered for this definitive edition.
Review: Don't be confused by the Seusslike artwork. This is not a children's book. It is a complex story involving religion and politics. There are some brutal death scenes and a bit of gore.
The story is a fun read. There are so many different types of alien species. The spaceships also are so unique. The details in the artwork keep you from paging through this graphic novel too fast.
Although there are some adult situations and a little gore, the story is very light. It is overall a fun read with excellent art. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys comics about galaxywide conflicts with childish art that is in no way for children. I give this graphic novel a 4/5.
