BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy
(W/A/CA) Daniel Warren Johnson
SERIES PREMIERE! Thea dreams. Not of a better life, but of revenge on the clan that ruined her family. With ferocious battles between man, machines, and monsters ahead…who knows where her quest for vengeance will take her? Creator DANIEL WARREN JOHNSON (Space Mullet) and colorist MIKE SPICER present a bold new vision, where the beauty and imagination of Studio Ghibli meet the intensity of Mad Max, in this all-new Skybound Original.

It's a revenge story. It's a visual wonder. Relax, its both! In a world of who knows where, an invading force comes to take the things that matter most? From a child, they take a mother. From an artist, they take a hand. From a husband, they take a wife...you get the idea. It's not hard to believe the wronged parties would plan for revenge.
Where they plan it...oh, brother. Floating islands with tear inducing violin music. Hovering garbage scows re-purposed into troop transports, airborne castles, and Predator worthy death masks. It's Akira by way of Spirited Away. Writer/artist Daniel Warren Johnson has put everything into this book. That includes graphic violence at the edge of blades so sharp no amount of bone or muscle offers protection. I'd say if you like The Spread, Green Valley, Paul Pope's art, or morally sound revenge that leaves more questions than answers, this book is for you.
I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
