Review: A Small Favor

James has been alive for a long time – a really long time. He’s travelling the stars with his A.I. companion Liz, trying to discover the truth about what happened to him all those years ago, and what lies in his future…

“A Small Favor is a comic book series by Caleb Palmquist and John Grimes, with art by fifteen different artists (and counting)! The story is told over the course of 1,000 years, and every time period is drawn by a different artist. Contributors include Walter Ostlie (Shiver Bureau, Metal Shark Bro!), Nicolas Touris (Pixie Dust, Franklin and Ghost), Nick OG (Beyond the Wall of Sleep), and many more!”

Let me start out by saying this: what an awesome idea. A man’s adventures of 1000 years with his A.I. companion, with each time period drawn by a different artist? That’s fantastic!

But A Small Favor delivers on it’s great idea with solid writing and gorgeous art that transport us through time with James. I love this story, and how unique it is. There’s a really intriguing blend of space adventure/ sci-fi, with history, and a bit of mystery. Definitely something to check out if you’re interested in any or all of those genres.

I was lucky enough to get to read issue 0 and volume 1 thanks to Caleb Palmquist. And, starting today, the Kickstarter is live for A Small Favor: The Undying Soldier.

From the Kickstarter campaign:

“A Small Favor: The Undying Soldier #1 is the first chapter in an all-new A Small Favor story. While this issue continues the story of A Small Favor, it is also a perfect jumping-on point. Returning fans will have a lot to enjoy, and new fans won’t miss a beat jumping into the story.

The Undying Soldier tells the story of James, Liz, and Krydre as they search for the titular Undying Soldier, a legendary fighter in the Necan Cicadan War who is rumored to be immortal. Will they find the Undying Soldier? Will he have the answers they seek?”

So, now’s the perfect time to jump in on this and enjoy the world of A Small Favor for yourself. There are plenty of reward levels that can catch you up, or you can jump in during The Undying Soldier.

I definitely recommend this series if you enjoy indie sci-fi books. Go back this great series so we can get more pf James and Liz, and their fantastic adventures.
