    A soap opera for little girls. I don't know that this would appeal to anyone over the age of 10. Hardly anything of note happens in this 250 page story.

    A small hint is possibly given to Oliver's origins, but mostly it's just a continuation of the teen angst from last time. The pacing is soooo sloooow. And it was off-putting that the only brown-skinned male featured was shown accosting our lily-white heroine so she could be saved/avenged by two even whiter guys. I'm not accusing the creator of anything, I've just been reading a lot of books about racism this month and this caught my attention in a way I know it would not have just a few days ago.

    The 6th volume of this fun, quiet series, of a girl who grew up in outer space, learning about life on earth, and the strange boy called Oliver that up until this volume, she thought didn’t have a flavor (Amy can sense flavors in people) The story on line, of course, has gone beyond this volume, but I am being patient and reading them as they come out.

    This volume isn't out until March 2020, but I've caught up with the content that's available online (which goes way beyond this) and I'm so enraptured by this story! Absolutely can't wait to see more of this as time goes on, and I'll definitely be buying the comics as they come.

(Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC for review through Edelweiss.) -- 3.5 stars -- A long-running weekly comic on WEBTOON, Stephen McCranie's Space Boy is teased as "A sci-fi drama of a high school aged girl who belongs in a different time, a boy possessed by emptiness as deep as space, an alien artifact, mysterious murder, and a love that crosses light years." The MC is Amy, a sixteen-year-old girl who's pretty normal except for the fact that she's an unwitting time traveler. Born on a mining colony, her family was forced to return to earth when her father lost his job. Since it's a thirty-year journey, Amy and the 'rents were cryogenically frozen for the trip: hence the "girl out of time." The family settles in Kokomo City, where Amy enrolls in South Pines Academy. Though she misses her BFF Jemmah (now old enough to be Amy's mom; could this be the "love that crosses light years"?), she soon finds her own new social circles: football star David, his girlfriend Cassie, and their friends Zeph, Meisha, Maki, Logan, and Howard; and the school's agriculture club, which includes fellow crossover Meisha, and Tamara and Shafer. And then there is Oliver, the mysterious, silver-haired boy who does not seem to have a flavor. (Amy has synesthesia and "tastes" peoples' personalities.) Though her friends think he's trouble with a capital T, Amy gravitates to Oliver, and vice versa. But for reasons not yet revealed, Oliver's very existence is classified - and their continued friendship endangers Amy's life. Enter: the alien artifact and mysterious murder. Volume 6 collects episodes 76 through 92 of the WEBTOON comic, originally published between 8/24/16 and 12/15/16 (yes, the trade paperbacks are very far behind! Do yourself a favor and create a WEBTOON account so you can stay up to date.) One thing I don't love about the trade paperbacks is that the plot seems to progress at a snail's pace, and Volume 6 is no exception; 256 pages and we're still not done with Spirit Week! Still, this is an enjoyable and bittersweet collection. Volume 6 sees Oliver continue to distance himself from Amy, while fissures deepen among some of Amy's friends. Amy gets to experience her first snowfall - and snow day! - for which mom thankfully yet temporarily lifts her grounding (that's a whole 'nother story). Amy finally discovers Oliver's flavor (orange with hints of cinnamon, brimming with passion and vibrancy and life - the complete opposite of Nothing) - revealed, oddly enough, as he's beating the piss out of a bully. Before she can even begin to process, Oliver and his foster dad Dr. Kim vanish, just as mysteriously as they arrived. The agriculture club's baby chicks make a quick cameo, as part of Tamara's efforts to lift the spirits of a mopey Amy. My feelings about the ag club are something of a roller coaster: initially I was overjoyed that Amy made the connection between the soft, floofy, sentient creatures she was loving on and the chicken salad sammie on her plate, and vowed to go vegetarian. This quickly crumbled when she got an accidental mouthful of bacon on Oliver's sandwich and decreed that it was fine, so long as the agriculture club doesn't start raising baby piggies. Speciesist much? And the very existence of animal agriculture so far in the future feels like a disappointing lack of imagination of the artist's part. When I first started reading Space Boy, I thought it had to be at least 30 years in the future, to allow for Amy's travel. Probably more like 100+ given all the new tech. But when Amy starts researching the Arno and its mission to reach the alien artifact, we learn that the year is actually 3355: The Arno launched in 3051, and was supposed to reach the artifact in 300 years - which, for Amy, was 4 years ago. 3051 + 300 + 4 = 3355. So you're telling me that it's more than a thousand years in the future and we don't have synthetic or lab-grown meat yet? That we're still breeding and raising sentient creatures to be slaughtered for food? That our morals have evolved so little? Gross, dude. If this is the future, I hope humanity burns itself out well before 3355. But yeah, baby chicks are hella cute. http://www.easyvegan.info/2020/03/24/...

    Finally, I was able to return to Amy's and Oliver's future! It was, again, a blast to reread this comic. I just love its characters so much! This time, the cover features Zeph, one of Amy's new friends who has invited her to prom and tries to get closer to her. However, Amy is too distracted by the drama in her friend group, school, and the mystery about Oliver. In this volume, the plot was less important.

It focused on the emotions and developments, both things I usually don't really like to read about. I picked up this comic for its space-themes and the mystery, but I came to love the characters, so I didn't mind this slower volume. It was like a break before a storm - since I know what's going to happen from then on. I even appreciated the chance for all the characters to grow and figure out their relationships. It won't be long now for the big climax and I can't wait to reread that one! Again, I found small hints in this volume that I can now see with different eyes - it's fantastic! I can't wait for the next book! And also for the original webtoon to start updating again :)

    This series keeps delivering. If you like the pace and mood of the first one, you'll love this one. It's a slow one, but the scenes allowed to breathe are a delight. Can't wait to find out what happens next. This series keeps delivering. If you like the pace and mood of the first one, you'll love this one.

    A little more information about Oliver ((view spoiler)[He's left town! And can take a lickin' and keep on tickin'! (hide spoiler)] ), but otherwise this sixth volume is all character growth with very few big picture moves. That's fine, these characters are nice folks, I don't mind spending 30 minutes with them. It's nice to see the Cassie/David break-up play out and to watch Zeph work through his feelings. I wasn't shocked by any of it - Space Boy continues to be a pleasant, uninvolving read.

    Another pleasant read. Not much happens in this volume- just more character exploration and Amy being cute as she encounters snow for the first time. The ending makes it seem like the next installment will dive deeper into Oliver’s true backstory.

    I read all of these books on Webtoons, so I don't know what happened in this exact section of the story, but overall I rate the series 5 stars. The art is lovely, the characters are delightful, and the story inventive and engaging.

    So, when I realized how much more there is published online than in the physical books, I decided I don't have the patience for waiting after all. And I binge-read the rest of what's out. So I don't know where this book ends, but I'll give it five stars to represent what I've thought of all the rest thus far after book 5. The characters (particularly Oliver and Amy) are amazing and the plot is intriguing and the art style is ever improving. I like it quite a lot.

    Overall this series has been great and inventive; however, reading and rating each volume reveals flaws.

I still know almost nothing about Oliver, Zeph is still pining for Amy but she has no idea, David and Cassie are still sad about being broken up, it snows.

Side note: I was shocked to discover that the year is 3375 (approx). It doesn’t seem that technology has advanced as much as I would expect. Sure deep space travel is a possibility but tech on Earth is pretty recognizable - including wooden snow sleds, vehicles that look like the ones in my driveway, and inflatable sumo suits. It doesn’t really matter to the overall story but the year so far into the future seems like a oopsy. I’m still looking forward to the next volumes, I just hope that the mystery of Oliver is revealed soonish. It’s been a lot of reading to learn that Amy finally knows his “flavor” and that’s about it.

    Amy's heart is very full. She has several friends who are hurting, and she wants to be able to help all of them. But knowing how to help can be challenging. On the plus side, Amy gets to experience her first snow fall. On another negative side, she's struggling with history that happened while she was in stasis, and while researching an extra credit project comes across interesting information about an alien object and the ship sent to investigate it. Meanwhile, Oliver has told his guardian he w Amy's heart is very full. She has several friends who are hurting, and she wants to be able to help all of them.

Meanwhile, Oliver has told his guardian he wants to leave town because it is the only sure way to keep Amy safe. Amy is such a kindhearted girl she's experiencing a little compassion fatigue. But you've got to love the way she cares about her friends. Her snow day is quite fun. Oliver's mystery deepens, and the alien object is very intriguing. Looking forward to #7. The whole series is great for young adult graphic novel fans. Notes on content: No language issues. No sexual content. (One of the spirit week days is cross dressing day, but the characters do so very mildly.) There's a fist fight and one person is knocked out.

I can't believe Scott (from Vol. 3) was going to attack Amy & was so glad to see Oliver to the rescue! Very superhero trope to then have Scott call him a "monster" and a "freak" because nothing happened after being punched in the face so many times... I wonder if Oliver is going to turn out to be some sort of Superman character. We shall see!

    I love this series. One book is never enough! They are quick reads, beautifully illustrated, and packed with intrigue and Amy's enthusiasm for life. Full of delightful characters and sci-fi technology, it's an engaging series to get hooked on. One of the only downfalls for me is how slowly the Space Boy mystery is revealed. We're into the 6th book and Amy still knows next to nothing about Oliver - if that's even his name. I could read further into this series on webtoons.com, but I really prefer I love this series.

This is a series I'd like to own since it's worth re-reading.

    This sci-fi graphic series is great fun, and does a good job of hooking readers in with each book and giving them just enough to satisfy them while having them yearning for the next one. Amy and her friends go through typical teenage turmoil, while Amy continues her quest to understand the mysterious Oliver. Though the characters are in high school, this series has been very popular at my elementary as well, and the subject matter works at any level.

    Weirdly, in contrast to the last volume I felt like this volume was very slow. I feel like things dragged out a bit and characters made little development. It felt very expository. I am curious about the next volume still. I do still enjoy the artwork and layout. Hopefully this was just an anomaly for the series.
