The review Social Fiction deserves

After an obtuse review in another pre-pub journal, Publishers Weekly has come through with a smart piece that gets this book and Montellier’s place in the history of French comics. My favorite bit:

Montellier’s firm line and punk ethos recall the early, science fiction–themed installments of Love and Rockets, but her vision is far bleaker, fueled by political rage, satirical wit, and a full-bore feminist drive. The anarchic sensibility feels both of its time and eerily prescient. It’s a thrilling introduction to an unmissable comics talent.

“Both of its time and eerily prescient” — exactly.
