Synopsis: Born covered in black feathers, abandoned as a baby in the slums of the Maze, Poe has lived his entire 11-year-old life hidden away under the protection of his adoptive father, Gabriel. He spends his days secretly helping the Mice, bands of orphans who roam the slums, but there is a whisper of an altogether more sinister figure in the shadows, making street children disappear. When Bianca, an over-protected girl from the wealthy City beyond the Wall, escapes into the Maze in search of adventure, their worlds collide. – Comixology
The Story: I have to say this is probably my favorite book I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing on this site. The story keeps you completely engaged and once I started reading it I didn’t want to stop I would love more stories in this world as well. the story is a bit reminiscent of Disney’s Aladdin or Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame, but it has a very original twist in the plot.
The Art: The artwork in this book is amazing and right up my alley, as far as artwork I’m into. Especially in particular the character designs are very Disney-esque and is almost a tribute to the movies I mentioned in the story section but with a personal flair. the colors are bright and vibrant and show the different set pieces off very well.
So I love this book I am adding this to my personal collection and Jorge Corona to my list of creators to follow I suggest you check it out as well!
