Nobody messes with Broxo, a young warrior with a wicked sword, a fierce horned-beast companion, and a fearless resolve. Which, to be fair, might be because nobody else lives on Peryton Peak. Except for that untrustworthy witch and those zombified corpses, who all kind of mess with Broxo. And Princess Zora of a far-off family, who comes to the mountain to find the lost Peryton clan and stirs everything up in Broxo’s solitary existence. Together they slash, stab, sneak, and snark their way through the mystery of what happened to Broxo’s people. Giallongo’s art sits somewhere between Jeff Smith’s Bone and Richard Pini’s Elfquest, which is about as ideal a spot for a fantasy comic as you could hope. While not exactly splashing around the page, there’s some serious bloodshed as a result of the intense, sword-swinging action sequences, though the violence never strays into the gratuitous territory. A strong graphic-novel debut that touches on ideas of loyalty, friendship, betrayal, and heritage with the crisp zing of a blade slicing the air. Grades 7-10. --Ian Chipman
About the Author
Zack Giallongo was born and raised in Massachusetts, although one half of his family lives in Indiana. Between New England and the Midwest, he's a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll. He currently lives with two cats and enjoys playing the banjo. He also likes cheese, bowling, and writing in the third person. Broxo is his first graphic novel.

The story is good. Not super deep, but I find that a simpler story is usually more appealing for me.
We've got Princess Zora, a girl on a mission to find the Peryton Clan, attempting to bring her people closer with the neighboring kingdoms. But all she finds are dangerous animals, the walking dead, and a wild boy living alone.
The only downside I'd give this book is that it seems to want to build a world bigger than what this one book will allow it, i.e, we get occasional references to clans and creatures we never ever get to see. I understand that the author intended for this to extend to four volumes, but the remaining three have not been picked up yet, and may not ever be picked up again. It's always good to plan for a single story before going after the big picture.
didn't sell it when I was finished, so I must have liked it pretty well. If you like a lot of deep thought and plot twist,
the story may not go deep enough for you. It had a plot and reveals it in good time, but somehow it isn't fantastic, just
Has some light gore (sword fights with monsters getting hacked; but not overly graphic), so age group will depend on your young readers sensitivities.
