This series of graphic novel comes from a company named Soleil in France. My only complaint is that the English translation can only be found using e-books mostly kindle. I came across it a few months ago and decided to check it out. Wow what a fabulous find! This is one of those few instances where I am hesitant about giving out any details simply because I want possible future readers to be unbiased on what to expect. It is both well written and with art and coloring gorgeous. It has elements of sci-fi, mystery, myth, without having super heroes. It runs 50 pages per issue and is up to book 17 so has room to fully explore all facets of the story. There are instances when I am looking at the art and wondered if certain images in the background are really there or Bec is allowing my mind to fill in the blanks. Do yourself a favor and not read any summary or synopsis beyond maybe the first issue. Go into the series with a open mind and I believe a lot of you will find it to be great.
