this is a series to keep an eye on.”

“In a dazzling interplanetary fantasy from the Siegel Brothers,
artists Bouma, Rockefeller, and Sun bring to life
the cultures, customs, and creatures of a lively new world that
will easily appeal to fans of Naruto or Avatar: The Last Airbender.

“This sweeping graphic-novel saga
features inventive world-building, with history, mythology,
and traditions naturally integrated into the narrative.
The installment ends triumphantly and tantalizingly;
readers will eagerly await book two.”
