    The art is what makes this a worthy read. Its pretty beautiful stuff, but beautiful in a very simple way. The children all have delicate features and big, manga-esque eyes and there are always looking up in that Oliver sort of way. Even better than the children are the women, obviously Tortosas favourite forms. I want to live in this city as there is not a single ugly woman to be seen. This is also where the issue falls down a bit. If youre going to have simple stories you need other things to keep it all afloat. In this issue's case the character development does this and the artwork assists but not sufficiently to make the issue a dazzling read. There is a pretty obvious lack of attention on the male characters and villains. It looks almost lazy at times, an afterthought. This might not stand out to everyone but it stood out to me as my eye was drawn to the vibrant colours and attractive women, then disappointed every few panels by an ugly or lazy looking character.
