“Voyaging is an absolute delight as Raya Golden brings Martin’s space opera to life.”—Neil Gaiman, author of The Sandman
On the distant planet Hro B’rana, the last words of a dying man echo through the halls of a run-down trading station.
Nearly three hundred years later, a group of fortune seekers embark on a mission to unravel the mystery of the fabled Plague Star aboard a rickety trade ship called The Cornucopia of Excellent Goods at Low Prices. But their journey will be far more perilous than any of them could have imagined—who will survive this deadly quest and battle it out for the final prize?
A darkly comic meditation on our future as a species, Voyaging, Volume 1: The Plague Star is a sci-fi adventure story of intrigue, greed, deception, and of course… cats. Adapted and vividly illustrated by Hugo Award–nominated artist Raya Golden, this thrilling and action-packed graphic novel brings the first story from #1 New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin’s classic collection Tuf Voyaging to life.
Praise for Voyaging, Volume One: The Plague Star [A Graphic Novel]
“George R. R. Martin has created a whole army of memorable characters, but Haviland Tuf marches (or at least, saunters amiably) in the vanguard of that army. Voyaging is an absolute delight as Raya Golden brings Martin's space opera to life. It's a funny, scary, and wonderful read.”—Neil Gaiman, author of The Sandman
"Voyaging is an overly accomplished piece of science fiction that’s as visually stunning a graphic novel as anything I’ve seen in my 52 years on Earth. George R. R. Martin’s story is as imaginative as you’d expect from a master of fantasy (and longtime comic book fan), but it’s Raya Golden’s hypnotic art that makes this book shine brightly. With her clean, vibrant style, Golden is instantly in a class with elder statesmen like Frank Quietly. An absolute must-read!”—Kevin Smith, aka Silent Bob, comics connoisseur
“Vivid, spectacular, and riveting until the very last page!”—Sarah Andersen, New York Times bestselling author of Fangs and Sarah’s Scribbles
