This graphic novel has everything: murder, intrigue, romance, and action.

The crew of the spaceship Explorer has not heard from Earth in more than two months.

They question why that is until someone discovers a message that has the potential to tear apart the relationship the humans have with their passengers, the meta-humans.

Meta-humans are combinations of humans and/or plants whose reason for being on the ship is not known.

There is a lot of technical information for the reader to absorb but the story follows a nice pace.

It comes as a shock when characters with a lot of page time get killed.

The paranoia onboard the ship is palpable - will someone step up to make a terrible situation better?

All in all, "ARK" is a solid read.
