Ender’s Game: Battle School #2

Ender’s Game: Battle School #2 (Marvel Comics)
By Orson Scott Card, Christopher Yost, Pasqual Ferry & Frank D’Armata

Ender Wiggin has been chosen to save the world, which you’ve got to admit, is a pretty big responsibility for a six-year-old. Ender is the most promising “launchie” in the latest class being sent to the orbital Battle School to train to defeat the incoming invasion of the Formic aliens. This issue shows us how Ender gets there, how he becomes ostracized from the rest of his class, and his first landmark motions into the legendary Battle Room. The Battle Room stuff is some of the most iconic material in the original novel, and Christopher Yost has done a fantastic job of capturing the wonder and unbridled joy a child would experience playing a game in zero gravity. The art team of Pasqual Ferry and Frank D’Armata have taken Orson Scott Card‘s world and given us a unique and dazzling visual interpretation of it. This book was going to be a hard sell on me — Ender’s Game is one of my favorites of all time, but two issues in, these guys are knocking it out of the park.
