Reviews
The language of boxing gives Kuchner a frame for introducing comet and asteroid attributes in this action- and information-packed science tome featuring an "incredible interplanetary smackdown". . . . Sportscasting language builds suspense until a final sky-filling "KAPOW,". . . . Laid out in a boxy textbook-inset style, Schu's digital renderings have a comic-book vibe and appear alongside squares offering terminology definitions. It's an exuberant book that packs an out-of-this-world punch.
