WHAT IS IT?

A tale of adventure, magic and fantasy that instantly feels like a timeless classic.

If you're a fan of Miyazaki's films, like Princess Mononoke or Spirited Away, you will love this comic. But there's also an undercurrent of Don Quixote just behind the adventure and magic -- a worry that the quest these characters are on is one they'll never complete.

WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

(Minor Spoilers)

Faithful defender, Rook, has to protect Queen Olwyn, who has been transformed into a tiger. They're headed for the mystical land of Isola, which Rook speaks about as if it's the answer to all their problems. But as she discusses her search for Isola with other characters, we get the sense that this task is more difficult than originally thought, and potentially ultimately quixotic.
