After a long crowdfunding campaign, Galactic Rodents of Mayhem has been released by creator-writer Gilbert Deltrez and artist Sebastian Navas.
In a distant region of space, three capybaras, the hot-headed Bash, sleek Mona-Lisa, and the easy-going Ripple are being raised by the salamander mercenary Gan-Gon who is trying to convince them to leave Shadow-Gate, the planet they are currently living. The corrupt organization known as SPACE is after them, sending bounty hunters, soldiers, and a thought-dead enemy after them. As they dodge gunfire and blasters, they will so learn that a dark force has a personal grudge against them.
In full disclosure, I supported the campaign and while I found the delays a bit unsatisfactory, I would support them again.
The creators take from the best that science fiction and Saturday morning cartoons have to offer. With anthropomorphic capybaras, mice, reptiles, and sharks, the stunning artwork, visuals, and character illustrations are a treat and fun to look at it as it takes you into space and beyond.
As for the story, it definitely has space opera vibes. They do a good job of keeping it tight, so you do not feel overwhelmed, but not so vapid that the characters feel shallow. The story is well-balanced, exciting, and you are not bored one bit. If you get a chance, definitely grab a copy.
