Quote(s) I Like:
"This is what I get for marrying a vegetarian! Even the goddamn plants want us dead." - Alana

"Commencing my interview. Now be a dear and fuck the fuck off." - Prince Robot IV

"Forgive me if I don't take relationship advice from a dead teenager missing her vagina." - Alana

My Thoughts:
Outstanding graphic novel. Definitely a favorite for me. Storyline, characters and artwork are all amazing. 

The first couple of pages with Alana giving birth was too much. She kept snapping at Marko and saying strange things. Marko's way of cutting the umbilical cord was priceless. Finding out that Marko was once engaged to a woman named Gwendolyn was interesting, but finding out the rings that he and Alana wore were hers was even more crazy.

The Stalk was a creepy looking woman, but the way she ran away when the Horrors aka ghosts came out was too funny.

The babysitter Izabel was extremely sweet and definitely had some tricks up her sleeve. Loved that she helped Alana with the baby by giving tips on breastfeeding and burping.

When The Will went to Sextillion and found the six year old slave girl and smashed that man's head together --- OMG. Graphic as ever, but great job that he saved her. Lying Cat is amazing!

I laughed from start to finish with Marko and Alana. They are such a cute, rebellious couple and their baby girl Hazel is absolutely adorable.
