The goal of any series is simple, leave your audience wanting more. The path to accomplish this is left to the author to decide. With Legend of the Ztarr Sara E. Mayhew achieved this difficult feat with ease. Start with a noble purpose[promoting science and critical thinking]. Then develop a compelling story(A violet-eyed farm girl tasked with defeating The Emperor of the Known Universe! Everyone cheers for the underdog). Character development is perfect! At the end of Ch.1 found myself caring about the well-being of young Adora just a bit more than I expected. I was impressed that the author was able to achieve this effect with so few words. To me, this a testament to the talent of Ms. Mayhew as an artist. So much more depth is layered onto the dialog with the superb drawings on every page. Although not incredibly detailed, many of the pages left me contemplating a familiar question. Which of my current talents would I give up for the ability to draw that good?
