Isola, Vol. 1Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Isola, Vol. 1
Creators: Brenden Fletcher, Karl Kerschl, & Msassyk 
Recent Release Date: October 30, 2018

Synopsis: An evil spell has been cast on the Queen of Maar and her Captain of the Guard will do anything to reverse it. Their only hope lies on an island half a world away--a place known in myth as Isola, land of the dead.

Gotham Academy creators Brenden Fletcher and Karl Kerschl reunite with series colorist MSASSYK and letterer Aditya Bidikar for a breathtaking fantasy adventure two decades in the making.


Review: I really enjoyed this story. It's so fantastical. The artwork is beautiful. The design of the characters and the animals are great. The animals remind me of those in Avatar: The Last Airbender

There is no exposition in this book. You're thrown into the situation and have to figure out what's exactly happening. For some fantasy stories, there's so much info dumping. Not in this story. 

I give this book a 5/5. Great Storytelling. Gay romance. Beautiful artwork. A journey in a Fantasy world.
