Why You’ll Like It: Fierce Protagonist. Mysterious Characters. Great Art.
This comic has such potential. I'm excited for all nine releases! Even if the plot may seem vague (so far), I am highly anticipating the next few issues! This first issue has detailed art, the story is intriguing, and the characters seem fascinating. I am not sure when the second issue will be released (I am faithfully scouring the publisher Stranger Comics)----and the mysterious world kinda reminds me of The Daughter of Smoke and Bone where for about the first few hundred pages you do not have any clue what is going on, but it starts to makes sense in the end. I will faithfully go to the end (even if suspension of disbelief is high) because I'm always hoping the payoff will be worth it. I have a good feeling about sticking with this series ALL the way. If you don't recognize the comic creator's name: She played the character, Rue, from Hunger Games.
Amandla Stenberg is all grown up and I am very excited to support her comic run. I really hope this issue was not a comic teaser and we that we will get more issues very soon. Let me know if you've read other exciting fantasy comics. I'm always looking for more reads to add to my list. Comment or tweet at me!
