What is it About?
Unwittingly a young healer brings to her town a dragon, the last dragon. After violent attacks from the dragon they search for a true hero to slay it.
There was nothing I truly loved about this graphic novel only things I liked. I enjoyed the art work which was very different then most graphic novel art. I liked the story especially the switch in who the true hero ended up being but was not fond of the dialogue.
I liked the fairy tale feel to it I don’t know if this was a retelling of original fairy tale or not. It had wonderful description of characters and the art seemed to fit them nicely.
Overall there where things I disliked such as characters and there voice but in the end I felt I enjoyed the tale. I would recommend it for those who like original grim fairy tales.
