While the sci-fi and space fiction genres, in theory, are about the infinite possibilities promised by outer space and the future, they have become dominated by the same imperialist tropes and narratives, about the same types of characters. Enough Space for Everyone Else aims to reclaim these genres and the notion of infinite possibility… both in what kinds of stories and ...more

This was a surprisingly cool book. First published as a Kickstarter project in diversity in comics/graphic novels, the format is like a short story compilation, with dozens of artists weighing in for 2-6 page comics in wildly different styles.
Disclaimer: I received a copy via Goodreads Giveaways, which doesn't require reviews but more-or-less hopes to stimulate them. Mission accomplished; I'd never have come across this book on my own, but I'm glad to have discovered it!

'Enough Space for Everyone Else' edited by J.N. Monk is a collection of comics and short stories from a diverse set of creators with stories all set in space.

The concept of generation ships is brought up in the foreword of the book, and it sets a tone of hopefulness for the stories that follow.

A really excellent collection of space-themed short comics from Bedside Press which I backed on kickstarter a very long time ago. One of the stories, "Transplant" by Megan Rosalarian Gedris, was nominated for an Eisner award in 2018. Other standouts included "Turtles" by Jon Inaki, "Art Pirates" by Tod Wills, "Stargazer Jr" by Z Akhmetova, "Habitus" by Ver and "A Pilgrim's Progress" by Sarah Winifred Searle. I appreciated the diversity of the authors included, with contributors of many nationali ...more

3.5 stars.

Overall it was quite nice. Took a bit before I got to a story that really stood out though. Most just didn't seem to have enough to them. And a few were a bit preachy.. or at least a bit explicit in their message.

But there some that I really enjoyed and I don't believe there were any that I didn't like at all. For science fiction fans I'd say definitely check it out.

This was delightful. I loved the anthology format: the variety of art styles, the range of stories from the heartwarming to the quirky. How wonderful, too, to see visions of future humanity that aren’t just about violence and struggle. There’s something refreshingly human about the stories told here.
