[Review] - Storm Born, Issue #1
Writers: Richelle Mead & Grant Alter
Artists: Dave Hamann
Cover Artists: Dave Hamann & Jennyson Rosero
Series: Dark Swan
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Graphic Novel
Release Date: May 2011
I received this issue for review from Sea Lion Books.
Summary: Eugenie Markham never asked for any of this. Until now, she's been content with her job as a freelance shaman, battling and banished Otherworldly creatures. When a prophecy suddenly makes her the Otherworld's most popular bacherlorette, Eugenie finds herself fighting off unwanted supernatural suitors, as well as the evils that begin emerging from her past...
Thoughts: While I'm a big fan of the Vampire Academy and Georgina Kincaid I have yet to start Mead's Dark Swan series. So, when I got the chance to review the graphic novel, I jumped at the chance.
The first issue propels you right into the thick of Eugenie Markham's life, as she cast a powerful ghost from a ordinary shoe. Issue #1 is fast paced and the energy was great. I loved the start of this story, I wish I picked this one up long before now. Eugenie is everything I like in my heroines, mouthy and kick ass. The art pops off the page. Especially the look of Eugenie, I think she is captured better here, then in the mass market book covers. Whether you are a fan of graphic novels or the Dark Swan series, you won't want to miss this one.
Score: 4 Stars
