Im still not convinced this series has what it takes to keep my interest all the way through. I can see places where the author has contrived quick fixes to plot holes, where characters make confusing or unnecessary decisions, and the behavior devolves into simplicity or the as-yet-unexplained. Still, there are overarching plot-lines beginning to form, new characters in each installment, and the artwork remains charming and unique. Its peculiarly rough, with huge contrasts between the sketchy but intricate backgrounds, and flattened, disproportionate characters.
Maria Simma speaks with Nicky Eltz. Dear reader, What you are now holding is a most interesting book. The world beyond is speaking. It is offering advice, asking for help, and giving answers. It exists and speaks about life - our life here and of possible consequences of our behavior.
