Joyride, Volume 1 Read Online Free - Earth sucks.
The stars have been blocked out for so long that people have forgotten there was anything else besides the World Government Alliance watching over them. Uma Akkolyte is a girl who shoots first, leaps before she looks, and is desperate for any means to leave her planet behind. And so she does. When Uma jacks an alien spaceship and punches through the stratosphere she sets forth on an adventure with an unlikely crew who are totally not ready for all the good, bad, and weird the universe will throw at them.
From writers Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly (Batman and Robin Eternal, Grayson) and artist Marcus To (Nightwing, New Avengers), Joyride is a rebellious love letter to the sci-fi genre, exploring what happens when nothing stands between a group of teens and their freedom amongst the stars.

If it makes a difference to you, I liked this comic enough to blurb it....

This felt sort of like a more YA version of Saga. The art was amazing, and the characters and world were interesting, but I did feel that it lacked a strong focus/driving plot.
Longer review to come.

The only thing that I don't like in this graphic novel is that Uma is the protagonist; I prefer Catrin than her because she possessed a pleasing personality than the latter. Nonetheless, this comic series is really exciting to read and based from the synopsis of the succeeding volume, it looks li...

They steal a spaceship from some slavers and take a guard, Catrin, who was chasing them along with them. Now they're freew...

Energetic, fun, and hopeful. Strong characterization with great designs. To and Kniivila's art is striking, sharp, and warm.
If you like Runaways, Ms. Marvel, Guardians of the Galaxy, or Star Trek, you'll probably like Joyride.

This review is also posted on my blog.
I received a galley from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Joyride truly was a ride full of joy! Listen, I'll be honest, I was sold from the very first line of the blurb I read & I was sure I'd love this comic book. I was not w...

The tag line on the back cover is: "Earth sucks. Steal a spaceship." Oh my god, were it only possible!
Pretty sure this wacky fast-paced graphic novel was custom-made for me. It's got a sentient space ship with robot simulacrum (thanks for the word, EDI), a snappy rebel female lead, a cautious mil...

A fun outer space adventure! Shades of Firefly, but the cast is a bit more CW than Fox. Not a bad thing, in this case. Looking forward to future issues.
