So the story follows four children who are transported to a new world after having read from a few mysterious books. The children full grown fifteen years later are struggling with news that two of their childhood friends have disappeared. Each leaving behind only one piece of evidence that points to their whereabouts, a volume of those strange books. Nothing brings childhood friends back together like tragedy.
|I just love this panel.|
All that said, it was a really lovely read. The artwork is beautiful throughout the entire issue which a special emphasis on this page I posted to the right. It does feel like its intended for all ages but I can't say just yet. The Fiction has all the mystery and wonder you need in a book with such a title and possess the timelessness required to make it memorable.
I intended to do an early review of the book but whilst reading it digitally, three pages in on my phablet, I decided it was too pretty not to read on paper and promptly waited for the hardcopy. Sadness that this is a rather brief story with only three more issues to go. At least you can always count on a mini series to have a proper ending. Well, most of the time and you haven't been reading forever building up to nothing. But I will get into disappointing endings some other day. FIVE STARS.
