Titan Review

Titan

By Francois Vigneault

I received a free copy of Titan from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

“Like the best futuristic science-fiction, Titan has a lot to say about the world that we live in right now.” — Mental Floss

When MNGR First Class João da Silva arrives on the moon of Titan to take charge of Homestead Station, he finds the massive mining colony plagued by tensions between the giant, genetically-engineered Titan workers and the Terran management. As anger mounts, what began as a routine posting quickly turns into something far more dangerous.

Phoebe Mackintosh thought she left her fighting days behind her when she turned her back on the “mixing” circuit. Now, she finds herself caught between a past she’d rather forget and a future she can’t predict.

Together, they must find a way to pull Homestead back from the brink of disaster… Or Titan might be the spark that sets the entire solar system ablaze.

Summary from Goodreads.

Set in the year 2192 on the moon Titan, we follow MNGR Silva who has just arrived on Titan at a mining colony. Tensions are high between the ‘native’ Titans and the ‘foreign’ Terran’s. We are introduced to this situation in the same way as MNGR Silva is, thrown into the deep-end.

The actual storyline follow an easy to follow plot, where every panel has a meaning. MNGR Silva is how we see the situation unfold on Titan, and we follow him throughout the graphic novel. I personally found his personality quite annoying. He came across as if he knew everything and would single-handedly solve every problem that was occurring on Titan.

The colour palette is white, black and various shades of pink. This, while a nice change from what I am used to reading, got very confusing at times. My eyes were not drawn to anywhere particular on the page, and nothing stood out to grab my attention.

For a more mature reader.

2/5
