This month's Book Club book is Low Vol 1 by Rick Remender and Greg Tocchini.

The story is set billions of years in the future of the Earth after the start of the sun's expansion into a red giant has made the surface uninhabitable. It follows the lives of the two million survivors in the underwater city of Salus; its helmsmen, the Caine family; and its pirate enemies. The protagonists of the first issues are Stel Caine, who searches for life-supporting planets with robotic probes, her husband Johl, and their children. The author describes the story as being about "one woman's optimism in the face of inevitable and true doom".

The first volume of the series received critical praise with reviewers describing the "primal, silent awe" inspired by Tocchini's "surreal" and "dazzling" art; and the "complex and intriguing world-building and precise, emotional character work", as well as Tocchini's "impeccable and breath-taking"
