In "Raegan and RJ in Space", Alpha Centauri Mini-Adventure, we discover that after recently colonizing the planet New Bethlehem in the Alpha Centauri star system three months ago, this group of intrepid explorers prepare to travel on a mission to the planets three suns in order to release satellites to monitor the solar flares. This graphic novel is one of a series of books written by Richard Collins and deals with the events of this group, all of whom are Christian. There is a pastor on the team, who leads the group in prayer and blesses the missions. Will they make it and deploy the satellites?
These stories are aimed at children and it pitches it very well, being informative but not overly complicated. There are elements of sharing, teamwork and healthy eating, along with a description of the star system and the colony. The artwork and illustrations throughout are very good with vibrant colours and a good level of detail. The main characters are well-developed and will be easy for children to relate to, especially as Christianity is shown as part of their lives but not the main point of the story. Children are part of the crew, and you get the feeling that there is no danger of them coming to any harm. The stories are mini-adventures and are only approximately thirty pages in length. That is enough to complete a well-rounded story without the reader losing interest. Overall, a very good story, well-written and illustrated.
