Ever since I started reading graphic novels I have been hooked on them partly because of the conveying of a story through artwork and partly because they take a lot less time to read than books. This new one I read is set in a world that is beyond your scope of imagination.
I heard about this from one of my favourite book vloggers Katytastic fantastic recommendation I could not put it down. This is about a boy who is the best at Skullball (equivalent football) and one day he is going home from his grandpa’s and is kidnapped by a bitter old guy who reminds me a bit of Yoda but what happens next you will have to find out when you read the book!
I love the world these two Wooding and Diaz have created it is so full of the extraordinary of the imagination mixed with the situations of the ordinary. It was so well done that I didn’t realise till half way through the novel that everybody in the book has bat wings. You just felt so engrossed in the world.
The artwork in this graphic novel I loved that it had this combination of light and dark colours show the mood of the scene. I think this artwork style is considered anime but I am not sure so if I am wrong let me know. I think the style gives a sharpness and pace to the graphic novel.
This story was so engaging I could not put the novel down as soon as I started reading it. The dialogue is fantastic it has this great black humour that keeps you interested in the plot and love the characters. I really enjoyed following the main character Seifer the writing and artwork made me relate to him a lot with his struggles of life.
Overall, I really enjoyed this graphic novel it had all the components a novel should have to entice you to the end and more. I can not wait for the next installment and whether Seifer will go back to his old life?
