Dark Horse Comics releases another Sci-Fi series that takes place in a distant galaxy in the Invisible Kingdom on its first volume. So, what is special about this graphic novel?

Well, their whole kingdom is invisible, more like ‘The Nothing’ from Webtoon’s Space Boy, I’m kidding. But anyway, this story is about two young women in another galaxy far far away, which is one of them is a captain of the ship, and one of them is walking down to the path which is called the Invisible Kingdom. It usually explains how the story can be more in detail but turns out to be complicated because this comic makes you want to see Star Wars again and again.

The plot of the story is about a captain of a cargo ship named Grix, who carries her crew’s secret mission to uncover a conspiracy at the heart of Lux, surviving one space battle after another. They find a nun named Vess who resides on Duni, and studies religion for the Mother Guide of the kingdom. She suddenly abandons her people just to go and join Grix and her crew with the data that she had from the kingdom. Grix suddenly has a lot of trouble keeping every in control, but her crew needed some assistance. There is a lot in religion according to this book and the author because the plot is most likely focuses on religion. However, according to the comic, the story tells that everything changes when Vess had a new role, and Grix found out that the Renunciation and Lux are working together, and nothing as it seems. Will, they can escape from the dangers of the galaxy?

It does give a lot of Star Wars vibe, however, the story is much more to have religious ways throughout the galaxy. The character designs are more religious, but more realistic and promising, like the front cover, for example, does the structure of the Invisible Kingdom looked like the dress that Vess is wearing? Of course, it can be a coincidence, but isn’t it wear that every kingdom has some of the weirdest tastes? The skin color of the characters is so random, I understand that the author is making her own world, but the whole story seems like it’s telling a story about Han Solo who actually smuggled every last one of the people at the galaxy and gets in trouble sometimes. The background and the structure looked amazing. I’ve seen many more landscapes that I could ever find, but going with the design of the spaceship from the front cover gives me some weird vibes that the spaceship has a hat, wow. Anyway if you rather read something that it’s related to religion in space, then this graphic novel is just for you
