>> Please, read the warning for possible spoilers <<

A graphic novel that collects the four-issue comics based on the sci-fi book series by James S.A. Corey and adapted into a splendid TV series on Amazon Prime. The story is set between season 4 and season 5 of the TV series and recounts the investigation by former Martian marine Bobbie Draper (who is secretly working for former UN Secretary General Chrisjen Avasarala) to expose and dismantle a black market weapons ring…

It is well written and the art is nice enough. It provided a good reading and, while filling some gaps in the story, helped me wait for the next season to start… I wish there was more of those, like a full comic adaptation of the book series.
