Wow.  I’m speechless.

Great art. Great dialogue. Great plot. Great Scott!

 

 

 

 

I can’t even find the words to write a decent review. This is not your average comic by a long shot –no tights, no flights, no soap-opera, no funny animals, no comic book violence. This novella is wonderfully written and brilliantly drawn. This story is entertaining, engaging, challenging, funny, dramatic and original. There are no narration bubbles; every transition is done through the dialogue or the art.  That’s a neat trick – one of many – since the protagonist appears in different time periods though out.

I don’t know who Lora Innes is, but she is a tour de force. This is her baby – she does all the writing, drawing, inking, lettering and most of the coloring – and it shows.  

There’s not a single misstep in the entire book. To say I’m hooked is a huge understatement. I’m buying this volume, the previous volume and will preorder the next volume. I don’t know who Lora’s muse is or where she gets the creative energy to sustain this, but she needs to keep it up. It’s infectious.

5 out of 5 stars.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. This is what comics are all about!
