In May, I mentioned that I really enjoyed seeing serious species diversity in science fiction.

In September, I was at MICE and saw a comic that so well implemented this I had to buy it immediately. Sean Wang's Runners is about the crew of a merchant spaceship taking on legally questionable jobs, and they're all entirely different species. So far there have been about three human characters in the whole series, one near-human (the kind of thing makeup can simulate), a wide variety of humanoids, and a fair number of totally strange things. Character-wise everyone is very relatable (this is not a series that delves too deeply into nonhuman psychology) and the plot is fun and exciting. Recommended.
