"Bezkampis a delightful YA sci-fi world of alien races, unique dialects, family, adventure, and following your star." —Johnnie Christmas, #1 New York Times best-selling cartoonist on Firebug, Alien 3, and Angel Catbird

“Sattin and Hickman seamlessly create a gloriously nuanced system of contradictions with this stunning graphic novel. I felt drawn into its sequential stew from panel one and it was a feast for the eyes and mind.” —John Jennings, Eisner Award-winning scholar and artist of Octavia E. Butler's KINDRED graphic novel

“Sattin and Hickman have skillfully crafted an inventive, action-filled sci-fi adventure that simultaneously wrestles with family trauma, environmental destruction and the danger of destroying history. I highly recommend it!”  —Maia Kobabe, Genderqueer
