Childhood friends BRENDEN FLETCHER (MOTOR CRUSH) and Eisner Award-winning storyteller KARL KERSCHL (Gotham Academy) reunite on the comics page with a breathtaking fantasy adventure two decades in the making! The captain of the Royal Guard has fled the capital city with the Queen of Maar, suffering under the effects of an evil spell. Captain Rook's only hope of returning Queen Olwyn to her throne and saving the kingdom from impending war lies on an island half a world away-a place known in myth as Isola, land of the dead. Featuring lush color work by MSASSYK (Gotham Academy) and letters by ADITYA BIDIKAR (MOTOR CRUSH). Recommended for fans of Studio Ghibli and the work of Hayao Miyazaki.

BONUS REVIEW by shawn


It's not altogether difficult to see when a creative team has been working on something for a really long time before the first issue even shows up. Much like a mash-up of Monstress, Seven to Eternity, and Princess Mononoke, this book is an exceptional example of world building. It feels very dense, but it reads like it's really simplistic. It's a genre that would not necessarily rank among my favorites, yet i still thought it was engaging. Highly recommended for fans of Monstress, middle aged Ninja Scroll lovers, and anybody that can spell Miyazaki without the assistance of the internet.

I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
