Lantern City Vol. 1

I've been hearing good things about this comic for a while, so I picked it up when I was at Emerald City Comic Con. (And was lucky enough to meet the creators at the same time, who were super cool folks.)


First, I have to say that I really liked the art. And that's a bit of a rare thing for me when I'm reading a graphic novel. I tend to focus on the words and the story, and though it makes me ashamed to admit it, I tend to be a little blind to the art.

But that didn't happen here. Something about the art caught my eye and held it. Not in an obtrusive way. I just found myself appreciating it. Maybe I'm maturing as a comic reader, and gaining a little more graphic literacy.The story was solid, too. There were a few places in the story where I found myself flinching in anticipation of a tired cliche, but the story never went down that road.So yeah. I enjoyed it. Looking forward to the next volume.

Petros is the creator & owner of BookNest. He lives in Patrai, Greece, where he works as a betting agent.

In his free time you may find him reading books, watching TV, and participating in Roman orgies (not really). 

He also has an infatuation with sloths that others might call unhealthy.
