    Kubo uses simplistic designs combined with brilliant colors in a myriad of tones. The varying hues are visually pleasing and transportive. I adore the care that is taken with the Black characters. The hair styles and clothing are beautifully done. This is an impressive and well crafted issue. Read Full Review
