Who were Olwyn and Rook before the ISOLA adventure began? Check out the first appearance of the characters from the bestselling, Miyazaki-inspired fantasy by BRENDEN FLETCHER and KARL KESCHL in this very special ISOLA: PROLOGUE one-shot, which was originally serialized as bonus material in MOTOR CRUSH issues #1-5 from December 2016-April 2017.

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
