Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
This is the same feeling I got when I saw the African American gangsters of the TV show Boardwalk Empire, the comic has a way of creating the ambience of the 20s with rich texture informed by the culture and politics of the time. I can't wait for volume 2.
Top reviews from other countries
The blend of historical and fantastical is well balanced, with one complimenting the other perfectly. The relationships between the characters hint at a wealth of backstories I'm sure will be explored as the story unfolds. There's a great sense of camaraderie between the Sangeryes with just enough friction to keep things interesting. And with a new and more powerful foe poised to test their bonds, this volume felt like a match thrown into a huge box of fireworks.
There's a lot of "bonus material", both writing and art, which provides a nice starting point for exploring the world of Bitter Root.
With a tantalising twist at the end, that promises more fantastical intrigue, I can't wait for more. I'm looking forward to joining these characters again for more surprises in volume 2.
