CopyThere s really only one Thing To Say About This to say about this uality is greater than uantity Lately I ve been reading a number of graphic novels that ust haven t drawn me in or been very satisfying At first I wondered if it was because I m used to reading Japanese manga where they re masters at flow beautiful drawing styles and storytelling mixed into one Manga only produces an average of 18 pages a week or about 32 pages a month depending on the series so mangaka the creators have to master how to balance art and story within those "Limitations Graphic Novels Tend To "Graphic Novels tend to you a bit leeway when it comes to the pages and many times the artists and authors don t take full advantage There are issues with flow art proportions and keeping the story engaging Storm Born has thankfully been one of the series that doesn t suffer these short comings In my review of volume 1 I said that I wasn t blown away by the art but I must admit that it s now growing on me It certain has an exceptional uality about it compared to what else is out there and again the coloring is beautifully done I m liking Eugenie and by the issue and I love love love her expressions now that I m becoming attached to the character The storyline picks up exactly where Volume 1 left off and as the story progresses there are naturally even uestions There s definitely to her new beau Kiyo than meets the eye so perhaps it was a little than fate that drew then together We shall see I do like that things don t seem to be dragging on for too long and Eugenie actually makes decisions instead of leaving things on the back burnerThe pages are short but the story is rich and engaging Eugenie starts out doing her ghost busting thing but it evolves into a deeper plotline A teenaged girl has been kidnapped and into a deeper plotline A teenaged girl has been kidnapped and to another realm by the Gentry the PC form for Fairy Eugenie is her only hope and will need to travel to that realm to save her I am not familiar with Richelle Mead s other works but I m assuming that these fairies aren t the friendly Disney kind Because this is an on going series the major plot points are ust beginning So while there s no resolution I can say that I am definitely. Reatures Those who try have The Dark Swan to contend with But Eugenie's about to cross into. .
