"The graphic novel, I think, is the perfect medium for storytelling. . . . To read a graphic novel is to engage your imagination, to engage all five of your senses, and to picture what the creator dreamed. And that's what this book does for me." ― Harlan Ellison
"Though they are set against the backdrop of a vast interstellar war, these stories are essentially about people; people who are never overwhelmed by the massive technologies of the Earth-Kyba conflict. It is Harlan's sensitivity to characterization that is one of his great strengths as an author, a quality I trust I have preserved in these adaptations." ― Ken Steacy
These five Earth-Kyba war stories by master speculative-fiction author Harlan Ellison ― winner of multiple Hugo, Nebula, and Edgar awards ― have been adapted and painted in full color by illustrator Ken Steacy. Unavailable for nearly three decades, this epic story cycle of mankind's war with an alien race is linked by a specially written framing device. This volume also features new introductions by Ellison and Steacy, never-before-seen pre-production artwork, and Ellison's short story "The Few, the Proud," previously available only in a limited edition. Suggested for mature readers.
