Reviewed by:

Created, illustrated and written by a talented new graphic novelist, Jorge Corona, this visually impressive¬†fantasy reads like a classic fairy tale, complete with sinister villains, mysterious legends and adventure throughout the collection. Covered in black feathers, orphaned Poe grows up in a chaotic maze city depicted in dark and muted colors, leading a hardscrabble life in hiding, trying to help Mice, children who run through the streets to avoid a shadowy sinister character. Shy, friendless Poe meets Bianca,¬†a girl who lives in privilege in the colorfully depicted City, wanting little, looking for adventure, and their friendship is forged as they work together to thwart the evil presence. Constant action propels the reader forward and this inventive serial story will appeal to young fans of “Amulet.”
