    I received an ARC copy of this book from Edelweiss actual rating: 3.5 Surviving doesn't make us evil. It wasn't wrong of us to endure, to look back at hell and dig our hands into the ground and cling for dear life. We are not wrong. Survival is a virtue.

I don't want to give too much away about the plot because it doesn't necessarily go the way you think it will, but it starts out as a fairly standard 'murder on a space ship' kind of thing and then turns into more of a study on the nature of mankind. The art is very good and sets the creepy atmosphere incredibly well. A good quick read that will surprise you with how introspective it becomes.

    I love the artwork for this graphic novel. The style was extremely pleasing to my eye, and I liked how body language and facial expressions were well utilized in the drawings. I also adore space station and survivor space colony stories, so this title was on point for me. The mysterious dark figure was a wonderful inclusion. This volume included issues 1-4. The story will be continued in April 2019. I was approved for an eARC, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.

    Very high-concept science fiction, coupled with rather sketchy artwork, makes for a less than satisfying combination. The ideas here are really wild--humanity, trying to outrun entropy, has set up a space station on the far edge of the universe, complete with its own "pseudoreality" field, so that when everything else gives way, there are still 2000 humans left. This is a huge station, built to house up to 15,000 survivors, so a lot of it has just been left to "rot"--the Dark Sector.

When a couple of highly-placed survivors suddenly seem to go mad, and a murder takes place, things really heat up. All of this is packed into four issues--could have easily doubled that and filled in some of the questions. The art is all right, but nothing special. It gets the job done. Surprised that there seems to be more of this story coming--it seems pretty self-contained, not a whole lot more to say, really.

    The first thing I noticed about this book, was the cover, and the beautiful art. I loved just the aesthetic in general, and I think that this is just a really well done book. Inside tells a story of humans trying to get out of their routine, go to a new place, and failing, but finding something completely unexpected and even hard to imagine after they've seen it. It's about a misunderstanding, and labeling mental illness. It's everything I wanted it to be and more. Check out my full review here!

For entropy has claimed the rest of the entirety of the universe – even the few ships full of humans which were destined to join the two thousand survivors on this, the last vestige of existence anywhere. Naturally after such a species-changing event she's reluctant to look again outside the station walls at what might have been there – but what if its influence is already inside? Such is the wonderful premise of this series. It's not a book that quite matches up to that imaginative idea, however. I couldn't really get a handle on who was who before it was almost too late, and the artwork didn't completely manage the senses of scale required. But in the end it isn't too far off being worthwhile checking out. It's a meaty sci-fi, it doesn't have too many routine tropes however familiar the setting may be and however standard the characters may appear, and it's surely such a rarefied concept that it won't be able to run and run and dilute its pleasures. All told, quibbles are minor and pluses are strong, so this is well worth a look. I like the idea of this ending soon, however, as it has a chance to go up its own arse if ever handled with an ounce of sloppiness.

    It's the end of the universe. There's entropy all over the place, that has already eaten everything left in reality, except for one (1) colony ship from Earth. Only 2,000 people left aboard, the entropy being kept at bay by something called a Pseudoreality Field projected round the ship. It's never really explained how this works (or I have missed it), and to be honest, I only understood the function of the Field in the last issue..

Anyway, this is humanity's last stand, and things start to go to pot when several crewmembers seem to think there's something out in the void, and it's probably not friendly. The story is quite bleak, and a bit ho-hum. It feels like there isn't enough time given to establish the setting and its unique situation, making what follows less impactful than it probably should've been. This story could've done with a slower build-up of dread, but I'm not sure you can afford to do that in a single issue series. Also not sure about the design of (view spoiler)[the entropy monster (hide spoiler)] - it just didn't look very frightening to me. That all said, I did like the ending of this arc, I liked that it was surprisingly upbeat. I'm quite interested where this'll go from now.

    I fell in love with the cover when I saw this on Edelweiss+. I've been meaning to add more Western volumes to my graphic novel reading (it being mostly comprised of manga), so after reading and liking the look of the summary I decided to snag a copy in exchange for an honest review. Overall, I liked it. It didn't blow me away, but it was pretty good. The story was unique - I liked that. The artwork was also good.

I didn't really connect with or particularly like any of the characters though - lead included, and that's mainly what's stopping me from giving four stars. A lot happens in Vol. 1. In fact, 128 pages felt extremely short for the whole story arc, like it was all a bit crammed in. I enjoy a cracking pace as much as the next person, but with Infinite Dark, Vol. 1 it felt as though things such as characterisation were sacrificed for break-neck speed. Would I read issue 5? Maybe, just to see where they go from here.

The humans on board have created their own society, but a vast majority of the ship is unoccupied. The Director of Security works with the rest of the command crew when a murder/suicide happens on the station. This graphic novel is full of interesting characters. It's a creepy, fun sci-fi mystery/thriller/cop drama. There's even a mysterious dark figure. I give this book a 3/5. The characters are really interesting, but the story dragged for me. I really liked the new technologies featured like the virtual therapy assistant.

    An interesting concept. A murder mystery on the universe's last surviving speck. The Orpheus was designed to help humanity survive the heat death of the universe, and it was somewhat successful. Most of those who were to live there never made it. It's down to 2,000 people. And now there has been a murder. What comes next decides humanity's existence. Talk about high stakes.

    A bit of a slow starter but the ending hits you in the gut. The art is interesting, sometimes it’s boring but other times it’s very detailed and amazing. “Surviving doesn’t make us evil. It wasn’t wrong of us to endure, to look back at hell and dig our hands into the ground and cling for dear life. We are not wrong. Survival is a virtue.” ARC provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

    **I received this in exchange for my honest review from the publishers via Edelweiss** It was a good comic but it went just a little too fast/was a little too short for my liking. Gripping story and I really love the creepier parts of Sci-Fi in comics so this made me quite happy. If it had been longer, paced out slower I would have given it four stars!

    The was a half way decent idea, but poorly executed and I was relieved when it was over that it was only four issues long. The art is really generic and uninspired, the characters are extremely one dimensional and the dialogue is crap. The premise and setting are decent, but the story telling is somehow both rushed and tedious. Don't waste your time.

    The premise sounded interesting. A last outpost of humanity. "Something is out there." A steep Lovecraftian vibe. And while the artwork was pretty good, the execution of the text just wasn't there. Got to the end of the book and just didn't feel like there was any connection to any of the characters.
