My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Finally, finally reading this. Here we go!


I read Issue #1 some time ago and was fairly ambivalent about it. But since then I have read a lot of comics—good ones, fairly bad ones, prize winners—and this is very good! Great story telling and character development, good pacing, great artwork… I really enjoyed this first volume and I will definitely keep going.

So far so good.

Blood Stones (Child of the Storm, #1)Blood Stones by Manuel Bichebois
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A hunter finds an orphaned baby and he and his wife adopt it and raise it as their own.


The child has a strange sensitivity to storms, which complicates their life and leads to danger. Fantasy setting, feudal touches, pre-industrial, some magic.

The artwork is nice enough. The characters look human, with animalistic features.

The story was not for me, it felt too YA for my taste and lacked interest for me. I will not continue.
