"[Dega is] a slice of high-concept, high-quality science fiction which feels like it could have come from a vintage issue of Heavy Metal, and as such it is as beautiful as it is bewildering." —Alex Thomas, Pipedream Comics
"DEGA by Dan McDaid combines the loneliness of space with an equally abstract, frightening aberration." - 4.5 Stars - Monkeys Fighting Robots
"Like many of the best sci-fi short stories, Dega's plot is easy to follow, building tension and excitement with each expertly structured page and panel, but still includes striking moments that are deliberately unexplained, inviting thoughtful interpretation." - ComicBook
“There's a raw energy in Dega's linework that is lacking in too many of its peers and makes spare but inventive use of color.” - ComicBook
“Dega makes a strong case for hoping that this first foray into the graphic novel format from McDaid isn't his last.” - ComicBook
“Dega is a mesmerising sci-fi comic. McDaid’s script and his art are equally gorgeous as this long project explores more than just a planet.” - But Why Tho
“The depth in writing, implementing an extremely high concept while being contemplative about existence, expands the mind.”- But Why Tho
“The ending is just glorious and completely unexpected; the surprise and scale of the moment is breathtaking.”- But Why Tho
"...the grungy aesthetics fit well into this alien world where there are a variety of creatures to confront.” - AIPT Comics

A crashed ship, a lone survivor, a monstrous secret hiding in the dark under the world. This is Dega, the new graphic novel from Doctor Who, Judge Dredd, and Firefly artist Dan McDaid.
Written, illustrated, and lettered by McDaid, Dega delivers a stirring, unsettling blend of hardboiled sci-fi action, hypnagogic surrealism, and existential mystery. Hailed as "electric... A title you have to read cover to cover and back to front" by Richard Starkings (Elephantmen) and "Beautiful... Valerian meets Ronin" by mindlessones.com. The clues are all there, but hurry--time is running in...
