What really amazed me with this graphic novel is the art. The illustrations were beautifully done and vibrant. While reading, I found myself staring at each page just to admire everything. But it did not change the fact that I'm still lost in the story. I kept trying to understand what's happening and it felt like I missed a page when I didn't. Maybe it was just me but I think there were mini stories in this volume that they were trying too hard to attach just so they can say it's all connected.
In conclusion, it was a massive roadblock of confusion and I hope the authors will shed light to readers like me because I still believe that there's more to it than the art. I still think that the story can be as wonderful and colorful as all the illustrations.
Happy Reading Everyone!
Love lots, xx
