Durango is 8 1/2 years old in Mars years (17 Earth years) and the chief of a small band of mercenaries hired to protect a group of miners from a horde of cannibalistic Draeu who have been abducting their children. The Draeu and their Queen are demanding the surrender of a treasure but the miners insist they have no treasure. Durango suspects they are hiding something and he and his eccentric band of Regulators soon discover a world-changing secret and find themselves in a fight for their lives.
Yo, yo, yiggity, yo! This is mix master Jake "Jakey-Jake" Kirk and I'm going to do this review as illustrated by a series of graphical rhymes starting...NOW! 

My Lyrically Advanced Review
(As Inspired by Ian Stupidhalder)

So our story starts out with with a boy named Durango. 
He's 8 years old Mars Time(17 in Earth though).

He's a disgraced soldier just trying to get by,
And with the help of his friends Vienne and Mimi, he's doing just fine.

Until someone makes him an offer he can't refuse,
Now he has new friends named Fitz and Fuse.

He's soon stuck in a frozen wasteland dodging cannibals and lasers,
With him the whole time, his trusty phaser.

The dialogue is amazing, 
Delivered like a true master
To keep up with it all 
You'll have to think faster.

The history is rich and the environment vicious,
You would only survive if constantly suspicious.

The story was something familiar to my eye,
It reminded me very much of Firefly. 

It''s beautiful!
Cannibals, cowboys, spaceships, it's all there,
I was swayed from the beginning, it just wasn't fair!

If you love Firefly, you'll love this!
And for everyone else,
It's something you can't miss!
