Title: Makeshift Miracle Book 1: The Girl from Nowhere
Author: Jim Zub and Shun Hong Chan
Year Published: 2012
Website: Makeshift Miracle
Synopsis: A young boy named Colby Reynolds searches for meaning in the world around him and discovers a place where dreams can come true — if he's willing to pay the price!
Along the way he'll see sights he's never fathomed and encounter hidden truths about himself he'll wish he never knew.
Review: I didn't realize this was an online comic until after doing a little research after I finished reading it. The quality is that of any published graphic novel you would pick up at your local bookseller. The colors have a watercolor feel that fits with the story.
This first book in this series is only a beginning. Many questions are left unanswered at the end of this volume and I want to know the answers!
A teenage boy comes upon a girl who has fallen from the sky and has no memories. Towards the end of this book, an Alice in Wonderland vibe begins to emerge.
There's not really enough meat in this first book to say whether I love it or not, but I really like where this series is going. I am going to have to regularly check on the website as new panels are posted.
I recommend you check out the website for the comic to check it out!
I give this book a 3/5. It really left me wanting more.
