These two are simply incompatible. Amneris Dartmoore is a pacifist, she would try and reason with the Parovians. How open they are to diplomacy, is yet to be seen.

Haha, thank you! I wanted her to deliver her annoyance through body language.

Ah! I caught up already? Whelp, this just means I need to read your other comics XD

Seriously, I LOVE how well you convey a whole galaxy of planets and cultures, while still moving the action along! I'm excited to see where this goes. This makes me nostalgic for the action space films of the '80s and some sci fi novels. I read a handful of McCaffery's Pern books and even a little Mercedes Lackey (more fantasy than sci-fi). While there's no dragons here, it's still making me remember my youth reading all the fantasy/sci fi stuff I love!)

Thank you! I love old-fashioned sci-fi and I guess it shows in my works. I grew up reading Vance, Asimov and Heinlein because my father has been collecting those novels since the Fifties.

None surprisingly, I have read some Asimov, but not the others...I have a stupidly long list of books I need to read (to be fair, I think as far as sci-fi goes Phillip K. Dick and Herbert have been my faves. But last year I read Brave New World for the first time...and I am glad I did, but I'm not sure how I feel about it XD). If you have any suggestions, please let me know!

I wholeheartedly suggest anything by Jack Vance, he was incredibly good at worldbuilding and describing alien cultures. You could start with the Demon Princes saga, or any of his short stories collections. Sometimes his sci-fi is borderline fantasy, you should appreciate that.
Other books I loved a bit too much: the Dorsai cycle (aka the Childe cycle) by Gordon R. Dickson. The lead character of one of his books, "The Tactics of Mistake", was one of my main inspirations for Jan's personality. I used to read that novel at least once a year.
Heinlein: everyone talks about Starship Troopers, but I really loved Universe (set on a huge colony ship).
Then, if you also like some humour, read the Retief books by Keith Laumer. Interstellar diplomacy with a twist. :D

Omg! This is fantastic! And YES I loved The Dragon and George (like, life defining, as I read it because I loved The Flight of Dragons cartoon and the Boris Vallejo covers are my favorite! XD) and had my eye on the Dorsai series, but never read it.

I am so looking forward to checking these out!! Thank you!
