Fans of CrossGen comics, such as Meridian, Mystic, or Sojourn, should definitely check out this title. It shares many thematic elements of these titles, but without the whole Sigil back story complications. It has a strong female protagonist, fantastic settings, and a destiny to fulfill, along with gorgeous artwork. Fans of intelligent storytelling in sequential art should also take note.
