A review by rorycb
Invisible Kingdom, Vol. 1 by G. Willow Wilson


In hindsight I may have given this one more star than what reflects how much I enjoyed it.

I love the initial premise, so enjoyed the first chapter the most. But as the story developed it went in directions that I found to be somewhat pedestrian. Personally I would have preferred if the two leads didn't join up so quickly and carried on parallel storylines the occasionally intersected.

I"m not a big fan of this style of art. I'd rather a strong black line, not the mix of colour blocks and occasional outlines this was made up of. At times it was difficult to understand what was being depicted, especially in the space scenes.

One other thing that bothered me was more information about the setting was revealed in the end notes, instead of in the book itself.
I didn't realise it was set around a few planets in a shared solar system which would been helpful in establishing the story in my mind.

Others certainly are enjoying this, so I don't want to rain of their parade. I'll read the next volume and see were this tale leads...
