    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 4, 2023

    A good blend of world-building and character moments sets off a classic hero's journey, but the breaking point of this issue's script feels a bit too early. It's another example where a double-sized debut issue would have been more satisfying to read. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 10, 2023

    Luna and Wood might be moving the story along in a way that feels a little awkward at the outset. However, it feels like things could really ramp up and become more intriguing. Once the story moves out beyond the palace. The nobility of the princess will be contrasted against the rest of the world in which she's adventuring. That's going to add a great deal of momentum to things. The Southeast Asian atmosphere should be a pleasant and fascinating contrast against all of the European-based fantasy adventure stories that dominate the comics rack.  Read Full Review
