Do you like stories about people finding creepy things in space? I do! If you do too, read this book immediately! Alex Braith books passage on the Southern Cross for a journey to Titan. Her goal is to bring her sister's body back home. Amber took an administrative job on a rig and ended up dead. Alex wants to know why. It turns out the Southern Cross is exactly the right place to start asking questions. Cloonan and Belanger create an amazing level of tension as (strange) things start to happen on the ship. Loughridge uses these flat, dark colors that make everything look artificially but dimly lit. This is grungy sci-fi, not the shiny future where everything's white and chrome. I love it. The choice Alex and the ship's captain make at the end sets up the next volume to be even stranger than this first one, so I'm anxiously awaiting Volume 2.
