The rise of the Tzalekuhl Empire disrupts the peace across the land of Mezo. When the conquest begins, a young girl named Kyma witnesses the death of her father, a tribal leader who refused to yield. As the solar eclipse nears, Kyma must unite the various tribes against an emperor determined to make them all kneel before his god or be sacrificed in his name. Mezo, a new fantasy epic set in a Mesoamerican-inspired world begins here!

    Pastrami Nation - Nolan Smith Oct 21, 2019

    This was my first book ever from A Wave Blue World, and it certainly wont be the last. Mezo has the makings of a historical epic, and I, for one, am ready to continue the journey. I already pre-ordered the trade paperback through my local comic shop, and I encourage you to give this book a shot, whether with a printed copy or digitally. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 2, 2019

    The comic is ok. There's nothing inherently bad about it but there's little that makes it stand out. The “premiere edition” features designs and penciled pages but it's all standard items we've seen in trade collections. Much like the story, there's nothing new or particularly unique.

    Big Comic Page - Mark Scott Sep 25, 2019

    This is a well thought out, highly polished and confidently delivered first issue of the quality youd expect to see from a publisher like Image. I think that if A Wave Blue World can continue to turn out quality like this theyre going to be a force to be reckoned with in the comic book world. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Lizzy Garcia Sep 21, 2019

    Outside of the narrative, the art is as well done as the designs. While inspired by real-life, they have a whimsical quality to them. The coloring on the book is also a stand-out with bright hues jumping off the page. Additionally, the characters' darker skin tones are prominent. An unfortunate trend in comics is the inability to properly color characters with darker skin tones, leading to a character of color who effectively has been whitewashed. Luckily,Mezo #1doesn't make that blunder even if it still has problematic elements. Read Full Review
