Have you ever looked at the cover to something and thought, man, this just isn’t for me without even picking it up and looking inside? Yeah, that was my reaction to this book, at first. Then, I picked it up and looked inside….
“A mysterious race known as The Koans have brought enlightenment, salvation and peace to weary humanity. But somewhere, hidden away beneath the surface of a perfect life, a paraplegic named Frank is being hunted for a secret he doesn’t even know he holds by someone he once trusted the most. His journey will reveal courage he never thought he had and introduce him to allies that will become his truest friends.”
The Good: I know this might sound geeky, but I loved the layout of this book. It was so easy to read and your eye flowed (yeah, that doesn’t sound gross at all!) from one panel to the next without any effort of trying to figure out what was next. The story held my attention and soon I was forgetting my pre-conceived notions in my desire to find out how Frank had gotten where he was and what was going to happen next.
The Bad : I know that usually I can find something but in this case, nothing jumped out at me. I know that shocks so many of you who consider me to be on the critical side of things at times, but trust me, I looked. Then, I looked again.
The Summary : Frank is one of those characters that you’re not sure if you should love him or hate him. He gets the tar beat out of him and yet he never loses his attitude or spunk. His life is one thing after another and yet he still seems to come back for more. The artwork in this book is good and when I flipped through it, my first thought was finally, someone who knows how to do black and white. If you pick this one up, it might surprise you by becoming one you want to read more.
