I can't understand why this graphic novel is not being reviewed on comic book sites. My suspicion is that because it was published in Britain, it was not distributed through Diamond (which handles most, if not all, American comics/graphic novels) and thus is not all that well known here. I found out about it by reading a post over at a British blog devoted to comics.
This is a wonderful graphic novel. It's a coming of age story set in "stone-age". The characters are believable and the story-line engrossing and it is wonderful to follow the main character as he matures.
The art is simply fantastic. The artist, Adam Brockbank, has worked as a concept artist for movies and he brings a wonderful sense of real environments to his background settings. Mr. Brockbank also has a great sense of storytelling and his page designs get the reader involved and guide the reader from page to page.
Recommended to anyone who enjoys reading comics, especially if they get a kick out of reading something other than superhero story-lines.
