Publisher: Adarna House, Inc
Publication Date: October 4th, 2016
Genre: Silent Comic
My Rating: 4/5 stars
Links: Goodreads . Amazon
This wordless comic book follows the exploits of a backpack-toting adventurer in a quest to find a mysterious treasure. Framed in black, the illustrations offer delightful bursts of color and are sure to entertain readers of any age.
I received a review copy from the publisher via NetGalley, in exchange with an honest review.
This is my very first silent comic, and I wasn't disappointed !
I fell in love with the illustration work. This comic shows how a picture is worth a thousand words.The color switching from one contrast to another , was highly appreciated. I highly recommend swapping instantaneously through such pages , to enjoy a short stop motion animation.
I wish I understood why he killed a lot, or what lead to having such creatures guiding the elemental crystals. Definitely a little bit of too much violence for kids; there is a lot of killing that happens one after another.
I give it 4/5 stars.
