Lost Vegas by Jim McCann & Janet Lee - Paul's Review

*I received this book as an eARC from Image Comics on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Title: Lost Vegas
Author: Jim McCann & Janet Lee
Year Published: 2013

The Eisner Award-winning team behind Return of the Dapper Men reunites to create a completely different, and far more dangerous cosmos filled with intrigue as one gambler-turned-slave has 24-hours to go all in and pull off the greatest heist the universe has seen! 

Aboard a luxury star-cruiser whose glamour hides deep secrets that endanger the entire galaxy, will Roland choose his own freedom, or expose the greatest lie hiding in plain sight? High-risk stakes where either choice means someone will lose everything! 

Ocean's Eleven meets The Fifth Element.

Review: Looking for a Space Opera set in a prison/casino? Well that's exactly what this graphic novel is. Imagine a heist movie featuring the diverse cast of a sci-fi space adventure. There's a handsome antihero, a quirky mechanic, and a sexy princess. Not to mention the psychic goo called Ink and the talking reindeer with science.

A lot of the world isn't heavily explained, but the world itself is diverse and colorful. The terms "peace" and "war" are used in an interesting way. 

I really enjoyed this graphic novel and look forward to seeing what happens next. I give it a 4/5!
