This dark fairytale combines visually stunning art from Jim Agpalze and a powerful story from Cameron Pierce. I opened it just to have a peek and finished it before I knew it. The thing is beautiful. I was pretty blown away.
The writing is intricate and often stripped down. As a whole, this is very easy to follow and can be read in one sitting. The art serves as a perfect companion to the story. We follow the tragic story of Tetsuo, the loss of his brother Farfalu, his odd relationship with Summer, and the isolation he feels internally that becomes more a real part of his existence as he grows up.
There is simply so much that I enjoyed about this. It was the perfect mix of creepy, sad, and strange that really pulled me in and had such an effect. Read this!!!
