Format: Paperback
When I read this earlier this year I knew I would not read a better graphic novel this year. Now as 2016 comes to a close, I am so happy my prediction was right. The complete edition of City in the Desert gives us the final volume and complete story that had the first two volumes released individually.

It is a fantastic adventure story following a monster hunter named Irro and his wild assistant Hari as they discover a cult who has just comes to town has hidden motives.

Moro Rogers simple and straightforward line work brings more expression and life to her story that will leave most illustrators jealous. Her characters jump of the page and the action and story are perfectly paced. The story is filled with philosophy, adventure, romance, and so much more. No matter if you are reading this for the first time or reading it to finish the third volume and end of the story, City in the Desert is easily the best graphic novel of the year.

I actually picked up the two hardbacks before getting this editon, and while they're gorgeous, it's really nice to have the complete story in one book. The story is quite good, though a little heartbreaking at the end, and Rogers art style is wonderful. I'm normally used to the mainstream, heavily rendered art prevalent in comics today, but there is so much to learn in these little cartoon images. Seemingly simple, almost spare, every panel is easy to understand and functions with only the line work it needs, like a zen painting. The flat colors help to bring the art into something masterful. Some things here for a fellow artist to learn from.

I purchased this for my 11yr old son, he loves adventure stories with demons and gory fight scenes. I read it first to be sure it was something I didn't mind him reading. And I'm so glad I read it first since I found intriguing and couldn't put it down. So much going on with the amazing art work and the fantastic world created to house the creatures it was fascinating. I wish there was more chapters but I am satisfied nonetheless with the ending. Great work Moro

I had the good fortune of discovering this series through a friend and am so glad that it was shared with me. It's simply drawn in a really expressive style, and since it's comic book format is an easy read, but you get an excellent sense of each character and feel as though you get to know them. I loved the story line, the art--it reminded me of Samurai Jack--and the moral and philosophical tidbits it offered. I recommend it for young adult and adult readers. Actually, I think it would make a pretty neat cartoon mini-series...just sayin'.
