I’ve been a fan of comics for a while, more so in recent years as women have finally been getting increased attention in a male dominated world. Any time there is a female centered story I have to jump at the chance to read it; having daughters I’m constantly on the lookout for reading material for them that showcase women in a positive light. In that regard this story does that well.
The plot is interesting but at times it felt like I was missing something as if there were other stories I should have read prior to understand the full context.
The illustrations are well drawn and full of color so they jump out to catch your attention. They are drawn in a way that enhances the story line instead of detracting from it.
