The Wormworld Saga: The Journey Begins
Creator: Daniel Lieske 
Upcoming Release Date: June 5, 2018

Synopsis: Are you ready to enter the Wormworld?

Jonas is a dreamer. During his summer holidays he stays at his Grandmas house on the countryside. In the attic he discovers a strange painting, which turns out to be an entrance to the mysterious Wormworld. Jonas steps through the picture into the foreign world and loses connection to his home right at that moment. Completely left on his own, he has to face the biggest adventure of his young life... 


Review: A child finds a portal to another world over summer vacation when visiting a relative. Yes, this is cliche. But who doesn't love a good portal story? There were many aspects of this story that reminded me of a point-and-click adventure game from the 90s. The artwork is beautiful, showing all the corners of this lush world. 

This first volume is barely even a start to the story. I wish there would have been more included. The worldbuilding is immense. There are monsters and different types of crystals. All with great artwork. 

I wasn't aware of the online following this writer and his world had. There's a cool behind-the-scenes look at the creator at the end of the graphic novel. I give this book a 3.5/5. I wouldn't be surprised if this story finds itself in a movie or tv show in the near future.
