I didn’t realize that this series was written and illustrated by the awesome guy who is responsible for Flight until I saw the cover and recognized the artwork. Naturally, I picked it up immediately. It’s a story focusing on two siblings (and their mom) who move to a new house and get transported to another world. I’m beginning to notice a trend in the stories I read and the movies I watch. People always get teleported placed after a move. Lesson? If you’re not interested in adventures, never leave your house.
Anyway, back to the graphic novel. I really enjoyed it! I love stories where kids, especially siblings, have to rescue adults. I also like that the main problem solver is a female and she’s flawed enough to need help without being the kind of loser damsel-in-distress I dislike so much. I love the characters of this volume, and the ending does a great job of setting things up for the next volume.
If you love fantasy stories with a strong, realistic female lead and a bag of cool, interesting characters, then I highly recommend reading this one. You won’t be disappointed!
