Across a Field of Starlight by Blue Delliquanti
Genre: Young Adult Graphic Novel
Publishing Date: February 8, 2022
An epic sci-fi graphic novel romance between two non-binary characters as they find one another through time,distance, and war. An amazing story that explores the complexity of human nature and what brings us together.
When they were kids, Fassen’s fighter spaceship crash-landed on a planet that Lu’s survey force was exploring. It was a forbidden meeting between a kid from a war-focused resistance movement and a kid whose community and planet are dedicated to peace and secrecy.
Lu and Fassen are from different worlds and separate solar systems. But their friendship keeps themin each other’s orbit as they grow up. They stay in contact in secret as their communities are increasingly threatened by the omnipresent, ever-expanding empire.
As the empire begins a new attack against Fassen’s people–and discovers Lu’s in the process–the two of them have the chance to reunite at last. They finally are able to be together…but at what cost?
This beautifully illustrated graphic novel is an epic science fiction romance between two non-binary characters as they find one another through time, distance, and war.
Really enjoyed this queer sci fi graphic novel focused on platonic love. The art and colouring is really beautiful. If you love space and found family, this one is for you.
Loved that it’s filled with diverse characters but that is not what the entire plot is based on. The character designs are very detailed and absolutely gorgeous. Lu and Fassen have a friendship beyond words and I loved them!
The plot was a bit hard to understand but overall I really enjoyed this graphic novel.
