Page 45 Review by Jonathan

"Let me ask you something, serpent-bearer.
"You've come all this way, and why?
"A defunct guard, protecting nothing and her hapless servant, who breaks when they should build?"
"They've told you so little. What about my side of it?
"I only ever offered these machines salvation."

"I know you're a liar."

Do you like the Steven Universe cartoon? If you do (you must also check out STEVEN UNIVERSE: THE ANSWER by the way if you haven't already…) then this collection of the highly regarded and exquisitely pink, purple and pastel blue webcomic is most definitely for you.

Aside from the fact it is beautifully illustrated with characters comprised of curvaceously cornered yet pleasingly angular polygons the story is bursting with as much action as it is heart. A most fabulous fusion…

Here is the publisher to tell you a little more just in case you aren't convinced already, before I bombard you with lots of intensely sensual interior art almost exclusively warping into your optic nerves on wibbly-wobbly wavelengths between 380 and 500 nanometers…

"Ophiuchus is the story of the lone sentry of an ancient, inactive gate. One day, a strange being breaks through and infects her with a virus. And shortly after, she is approached by two machines, who implore her to follow them to the centre of the universe to put an end to that virus - a malevolent being which rots all worlds."

Just some fabulous science-fiction that makes a half-hearted attempt to be semi-serious but is too busy having fun!
