Scottish-born Rossi Gifford's quarterly debut has been hailed as "a beautifully rendered surreal adventure" by Ramon Perez, and a "dynamic and involving with a gorgeous colour palette" by Dave Gibbons. Freya, an albino deer girl training to be a shaman, sets off to the mystical forest to find out what is causing an imbalance. Along the journey,she meets a wolf boy looking for the same entity, and they agree to find it together. Both are determined to pursue this force and prove they are capable on their own - but how do you stop a demon?

    I have to start out by saying the art is beautiful, absolutely gorgeous. The story is about a Shaman Deer Girl and a Wolf boy. Now wolves usually eat deer so we will see where this goes. The art doesn't flow in a panel by panel grid like most comics. Here both the story and storytelling are much more fluid then most comic fans are used to seeing. The story is mystical and the art supports the story style very well. The text is sparse but is presented in a way that flows with the story. If you like magic, elves and fantasy this is the comic for you. This also may be the comic that gets your girlfriend to like comics if that is a problem for you. Read Full Review

    You could get lost in the wonderful images Gifford delivers; but you could also get lost trying to figure out what's going on. Read Full Review
