Takei tells his story in graphic novel format. The years from early/mid-1940s to today, show Takei a child of the Japanese-American internment camps (or as he calls them, incarceration camps) to present day adult who still fights for equality. History and the present blend together realistically (but not in a graphic manner). Take your time to read the illustrations, as they give elements words cannot. Can be for strong pre-teens, but ages 14 to adult are the audience. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

This is a beautiful, dark, mixed-up series. It is science-fiction mixed with realism and made into one mad trip down the rabbit hole. Rasl’s adventures of trying to protect himself from those who would stop him, survive “Drifting” (jumping into parallel worlds) and most importantly, protecting loved ones makes him the quintessential anti-hero. Mature images and themes. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
