Reviews & Summaries
This is a great graphic novel visually - it makes very effective use of panels to advance the story. One thing that really bugged me, though, was the way he drew faces - everyone has these lines on their cheeks that struck me as odd. Or am I just envious because I can't draw decent faces?
