Netgalley Review.


Another graphic novel I am jumping in on not at the start.


First Impression:  Art is promising. I am a little confused but it’s not a surprise


Art is haunting and gorgeous. Like Athur Rackum drawing alien creatures. Love that there is a character named Owen- my sons name. Story seems disjointed, like there are missing pages.


Plot/Storyline: A bit confusing but probably because I haven’t read the first volume.

Art/Colors: Beautiful but dark. Very surreal.

All the characters are believable and good, but I just didn’t get into them very much.  I know I didn’t start with the first book but I did the same thing with Gunnerkrigg Court and got hooked from reading the 4th volume 1st.     I think other people might like it more than me so I would recommend it. But I do recommend starting with Volume 1.
