Inaugurating a new format: 2 stories in one thick book! In a remarkably poignant and topical story, Navee is pressed into service against a group of terrorists bombing at random throughout Wake! The group is an oppressed neglected people whose anger is beyond cooling but the victims they make are innocent... In the second story, agents from Wake on mission on Hurumaru, a planet in medieval stage, are giving no sign of life. Navee, Bobo and three other special agents are sent to find them. They arrive in the middle of a war of liberation of the Escots. Lead by Princess Moneva, the rebels are summarily executing all who carry the logo of Wake: the sign of the demons!
”The art is gorgeous, filled with incredible detail. Wake is sci-fi action-adventure done right, with beautiful art and entertaining, complex stories. Check it out.” – Slushfactory.com
”Grade: A. Gives readers their money's worth by packing in the plot and saturating their worlds with color and detail. Succeeds in making a strong impression.” – Oliver Chin, Comics Buyers Guide
”Buchet's art is so colorful, clean, and visually arresting that it is easy to overlook the complexity of the world created by writer Morvan.” – VOYA
”Morvan's conceptual and thematic sophistication is astonishing, the equal of, say, Alastair Reynolds's, and his talents are felicitously matched by Buchet's intricate, dense and amazingly harmonious and astonishing drawings. This series is a winner, and at two tales for the price of one, a bargain as well.” – Asimov's
”The artwork is exceptionally good. The story line quite complex and intelligent.” – SF Chronicle
