Second printings are headed to your local comic shops soon – and you can always catch up digitally! Don't miss the comic that has the industry buzzing. Don't believe us? Here's what the critics say:

Outmatched and on the run, Queen Emporia and her and her children are racing to break away from the clutches of vengeful dictator Morax. Oh, and did we mention he's her husband? With Morax's new fleet of security nipping at their heels as they teleport between alien war zones, dead worlds and the lairs of intergalactic beasts – can they escape in time?
