Review: Dega

Author/Artist: Dan McDaid
Publisher: Dr. Ink Production
Released: June 2021
Received: NetGalley

Book Summary:

What would you do if you found yourself the lone survivor on an empty planet? Okay, not the only one – you get to have a droid for company. That’ll help, yes? Dega seeks to answer that question as our lead finds herself stranded following a crash, up against the dangers of an unknown planet – and the monsters within.

My Review:

As per usual, it was the cover of Dega that originally caught my attention. But in my defense, it’s pretty amazing, right? The colors are so bold and demand that you pay attention to what is offered within these pages.

Dega reads like a show if that makes sense. It’s a battle for survival, but it’s also surreal, beautiful, and so much more. This is the story of one woman (and droid) fighting to survive in a dangerous situation. In the process, there will be a whoooole lot of life lessons.

It’s worth noting that Dan McDaid wrote and illustrated Dega, which explains the strong sense of cohesion between the two. This graphic novel series is worth looking into, and I can’t wait to see where it goes from here.


  • Surreal
  • Existential
  • Strong Female Lead
