Debris TPB
In the far future, humanity has doomed planet Earth to rot and decay, covering her surface with garbage.

Now, ancient spirits called the Colossals rise from the debris and attack the remaining survivors, forcing the human race to the brink of extinction.

After an attack leaves their people without water, Maya, the last Protector, sets out on a journey for pure water, to save the world before the monsters bring it all to an end.
 
 
The cover image doesn't do much to show you what this book will be about. Debris was one part Alien, one part Transformers, and one part something else. Like the synopsis says, the story takes place far in the future. In this grim future, Maya, a kick butt heroine has to set out to save her people-- the remaining few of humanity.

Her quest takes her to some very dark places. She battles monsters that look like they could be from Transformers/Aliens. Maya is pretty hard core, which I thought was awesome. I was fully expecting a male leading role in Debris, so finding a girl willing to swing a sword and slice up aliens was epic. The story was original, and paced out pretty well. Like most graphic novels, the plot is too condensed. But that's graphic novels, eh?

What really stood out was the amazing illustrations. Every page was full of great details and vibrant colors. The characters' faces were very expressive... all the way down to their eyes. I think the illustrations really made this book. They were able to capture the futurustic feel perfectly, while still retaining some of the believability of a story set on earth.
