Book review

Review: Seeking the Truth (Through Lya’s Eyes #1) – Carbone, illustrated by Justine Cunha, trans. by M.B. Valente

The digest: a highly stylized graphic novel which follows Lya's attempt to uncover the reckless driver who put her in a wheelchair the day before her seventeenth birthday. The story is good, the setting believable, and the artwork simply amazing. If you like lowkey revenge/investigative plots and/or diverse casts then this is for you.

Review: The Temptation of King Midas (Alcyon #2) – Richard Marazano and Christophe Ferreira (Illustrator)

The digest: building on everything that made the first volume so enjoyable, I cannot recommend this comic book highly enough to anyone with an interest in Greek myths and retellings. If you have read my review for Alcyon #1, you already know pretty much everything I'm going to say here.
