I received this eARC from Image Comics via Edelweiss+ in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of this book in any way.

“It’s pretty simple. A world built on genocide and slavery isn’t a world worth existing!”

The Art

THE COLORS!!!!

This was beautiful!!!! The color palate was so so so lovely, and even thematically significant, which I haven’t really seen a comic do before (despite the obviousness of it all; it’s a visual medium, the images ought to mean something). It goes from deep, dark blues to creamy pinks and I absolutely adored it. The character designs were excellent as well, lending itself to an Adventure Time meets Steven Universe style that was both cute and awe-inspiring.

The Story

It is my understanding that this was originally published as a webcomic. I guess that means I need to read more webcomics, because this was great!

It had a wonderful message and a lot of very cool lore. The worldbuilding definitely could have been done a little better, but I was able to figure out some stuff on my own and it didn’t bother me too much.

As far as characters go, I really liked them! Our MC was great, as was Sagitta, but honestly, Pyx was my absolute favorite. He was so cute and helpful and just such a cinnamon roll!

The plot progressed well, the visual medium and it’s shifting colors aiding that progression nicely. I really liked the villain and the symbolism behind it. It was very biblical while also relevant to modern issues.

TL;DR & Conclusion

I really enjoyed this and I’m so happy I got the chance to read it! It’s a very emotionally moving tale excellent for any age. And it’s just plain pretty to look at!
